the Potato is 9….


He’s turned into a super-interesting kid. Loves Legos still, but into Mad Libs, too.

He’s developing something of a sense of style…but mostly it involves having messy hair that he hates getting cut…and t-shirts with skulls on them. Or SpongeBob.

He loves chess, and will play 10 or 11 games of Chess with Friends at a time…

And at the end of the day, he’s still my cuddly boy.

    My 9-year-old is about to turn 10 and he is STILL my “cuddly boy.” Not a chess player but loves him some football!
