Happy Joe Hargan Day!
Parenting you has been the ride of a lifetime filled with unconditional love, joy, fear, frustration, tears (for both of us), and laughter—so MUCH laughter. There’s no one quite like you. You scream at the top of your lungs on roller coasters, you get in trouble for not doing chores, you hate doing homework and you never eat vegetables. But you know the joy of genuine friendship, you love the thrill of winning a well-played basketball game, you are devoted to your big brother, and you are one of the funniest humans on the planet. I’ll never forget you telling your Kindergarten classmates years ago that it wasn’t just your birthday but that it was actually a real holiday.
So on April 16th, we celebrate Joe Hargan Day in honor of you and your infectious laughter, joy and all-around goodness. Happy Joe Hargan Day. I love you, baby.
