Ang and Rakes made the front page, ABOVE the fold of the local paper today after newspaper photographer snapped a picture of her kissing my little man goodbye yesterday on the first day of school.
This was a relief on several levels. One, he didn't think it was uncool to hug his Mom goodbye. Two, since his birth, I'd had visions of his first public photograph either being a mug shot or a wanted poster, so this was definitely a pleasant surprise. Three, I couldn't get my head through the front door after seeing this; not every day you see the love of your life and your first born son on the front page of the newspaper.
The fact he's not holding up a sign with a prisoner number on it is just a plus.
Throw in a Papi walk off Home Run to end the Sox/Sox game tonight and Teddy is a happy man. To all the haters who where crucifying the big man a few weeks ago?
The Large Father extends his middle finger in the universal symbol that the Red Sox are Number 1.
