Happy Birthday to my grandson Parker... Anyone who says the terrible twos are a normal stage in your development may have to reconsider after meeting you. I would like to change the term to the terrific twos.

Now that you are a young man of two, you are beginning to learn that you have a terrific family and an even better support system, which will be there for the rest of your life.

Your mom, dad and sisters will love you always, as well as your grandmothers and grandfathers. Please keep that in mind.
