The “Last One” is celebrating his 7th birthday

“Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-HUH,” that’s how a nightly ritual begins with my youngest son, right after his bath. After a lengthy time of coercion, he at least does the rest of the family the courtesy of putting on underwear as he dances and gyrates near his pajamas before falling over laughing at his hysterics.
Sometimes, his sister or brother will throw something at him, but have learned by now that neither words nor sticks or stones can hurt Lowell.
