Daniel Nathaniel Climber McTree

I am alternately shocked that my brother's turning 12 today, because that's so old! And big! And he's just a baby! and shocked that he's turning 12 today because that's so young! Can you believe I have a brother who's only 12? Who's still in elementary school?

Daniel is one of the most genuinely funny people I know. And I don't just mean funny for a kid. I mean really, actually, he cracks everyone up, funny.

He's also one of the sweetest people I know. He's devoted without a thought to his friends and family.

He's also finally of a legal age to babysit my son.

Happy birthday!

  4. Happy Birthday!

    and a double bonus for you. Now you just have to convince him that he wants to babysit.
