January 31, 2004, my second born came into this world in a huge rush.
He entered this life with such speed that the doctor missed it.
And since that day, this perfect creation has continued to live by his own schedule.
I love this kid so effing much that it hurts.

I could tell you everything I love about him, but that would take until next month, so, instead read this interview.
It's funny because he hated it so much.............

"Matthew, can I ask you a few questions?"

"It won't take long, I promise"
"One day, you will thank me for doing all of this"
"No I won't"

"Whats your favourite colour?"

"Rick's Restoration.
"Do you mean American Restoration?"
"I don't know"

"Under the Sea"

"Who is the Prime Minister of Canada?"
"Marack Obama"
"President of the United States?"
"Marack Obama"
"Wow, he must be a busy guy"
"What makes you happy?"
"Going to sleep"
"When Nicholas calls me names"
"When Nicholas copies me in a girl voice"

"Tell me one good thing about Dad"
"He buys me Tim Hortons hot chocolate"
"Tell me one good thing about Mom"
"She makes me Hamburger Helper"

"How tall do you think you will grow?"
6 foot 3

"Where will you go on your first date?"
"This is dumb"
"A restaurant"
"What will you do there?"
"Give her a smooch"

"Who and what would you take with you if you were stranded on a desert island?"
"Food, water and Dad, because Dad knows about most stuff"

"Are you going to have kids one day?"
"Sure. Maybe 1"

"What do you own right now that you will keep forever?"
"A picture of my family"
"So I have memories"

"What kind of car will you drive when you're a grown up?"
"A Ford Super duty Diesel Doctor"
"Is that real?"

"What part of being a grown up are you looking forward to the most?
"Being able to tell people what to do"

"What part are you a little afraid of?"
"Paying bills"

"Are we done now?"
Happy birthday to my headstrong, handsome, smart, funny, athletic, affectionate 10 year old.
