Jonam ... we love you and know this birthday will be great!
enjoy "12" ... and don't make it go by too fast for your dear, getting older, Mom. I'm not quite ready for a teenager. And, no ... you really can't take the day off school. But, we will have some fun listening to Pinocchio on Living Books for the Ears and then Rikki -Tikki -Tavi on you need a story.
Not bad for a Tuesday!
