I have 5 grandsons.  The first birthday in the year is Tyler's.  Every year, it catches me by surprise.  I put it in my calendar on my laptop so it would popup at me a few days ahead of time.  It popped up a few days ago and I promptly forgot it.  Today my son's blog had pictures and videos from Tyler's birthday party; this was my wake-up call.  I don't love Tyler any less than the other grandkids but his birthday is first and for some reason I think it should be on March 24 (there is no reason for this but that is how my mind works); so I tend to send the two April birthday boys' cards and checks soon after Tyler's birthday so I don't forget.


I promise that next year I might get it right.  I guess I should just blame the post office for delivering the mail late.

Ignore all the above, it must be the Post Office's fault!
