This is for James, so that someday, when he is all grown up, which is in sixty-seven, two, and one-hundred days, he can look back and know what some of his favorite things were.
Chicken nuggets with barbecue sauce
Broccoli – seriously, when broccoli is on the menu, he usually shouts yummy and performs a gleeful jig.
Cheesy bread from Sahara’s Pizza
Goldfish crackers mixed with Cheerios and raisins
Sid the Science Kid
He Man- I didn’t realize that He Man, master of the universe, favors pink leotards with the tummy cut out. What is that all about, I wonder?
Star Wars- all of ’em
How to Train Your Dragon
Kung Fu Panda
Lego Star Wars- the kid can play for hours
Drawing – mostly plans for robots and their accessories
Turning is drawings into actual models with Dad in the shop
Playing at the park
Legos, especially the Lego Star Wars sets
Mom’s Window’s 7 Phone
This is a tough one. He listens to generic piano melodies every night at bedtime. He likes Jazz, classical guitar, and chamber music.

I thought Lady GaGa might be in the running but she’s a girl and that makes her music for girls-yuck!
Vans with flames on the toes, which were hand-me-downs from his cousin Marshall
His cousin Marshall
G- his best friend
His doggy blanket, which he has been calling his doggy blanket since he was three, and to my great distress just realized it is in fact covered with cats not dogs.
There you go son- let’s see how your tastes change in the coming years.
