His name really isn't Daniel, it's James. We will never do that again, name a kid something we don't call him, or call a kid something we didn't name him.
James Daniel was born on this day 18 years ago. He weighed 10 pounds 2 ounces. He was born in Dallas and my midwife was Barbara Cook. The best midwife in the world.
I'm trying to think of one word to describe Daniel and the only thing that comes to mind is DRIVEN. Now, on top being driven for 18 years, he can now drive alone. Yes, we waited a while to let him get his license, no harm was done.........but that's all over now. He will go to TDOT this morning with his dad and get what he's been waiting for, for a long time. It's a pretty nice thing to have a kid that is excited about something like that for his birthday as opposed to what most kids want to do when they turn 18.
It has been a great 18 years having Daniel as our son. I'll really miss him when he moves next door...........
