My Firstborn, Javier


Javier, my firstborn, my son, born Novemember 2002 in Ohio.  I love this little boy.  He has a heart of gold and is always willing to help someone no matter what.  He shares, he prays, he helps, he is wonderful.  We call him Javi for short, which is the norm in most latin communities.  My son is currently in 4th grade, going to 5th this August.  I am so proud of him.  He is exceptionally smart but oh my does he have a sense of humor.  He is always making me laugh and I adore him for that.  He has a pet hamster named Princess.  He hardly ever plays with her because she bites too much (this was his fault for not handling her enough) but he does take care of her.  He is into gaming at this time.  I try to limit his time on Xbox live but sometimes it does get difficult.  His favorite game right now on Xbox is Minecraft.  I don’t understand it one bit but apparently it is one of the most popular games there is.  Aside from gaming he likes soccer, singing and dancing (he is awesome at hip-hop/pop n lock) and has expressed interest in cooking.  I have recently entered him into a nature photography contest this summer as well so I will post updates and pics of that on a different page.  It runs the entire summer and by August they will announce the winners.  Keeping fingers crossed. My son does not know what he wants to be yet when he grows up, but whatever he chooses I support him 100%.

Sad. Funny. Truthful.

Combining depressing thoughts with comedy and brutal honesty makes for some interesting writing. I know at least one person other than me agrees so that's good enough for me.
