Chet is 31
Today is Chet's birthday. My eldest is 31 today! We actually are not having his party till Sunday due to various family member work schedules. However I wanted him to have something festive for supper tonight so here he is in the picture on the left with his home made waffle sundae. Freshly made waffle, topped with chocolate chip ice cream ,whipped cream caramel sauce (just a drizzle) and fresh blueberries. He was thrilled and very surprised.
The picture of Chet on the right is him at a party,though which one escapes me. I love his zany joy and exuberance. But, his autism means he gets overwhelmed with sensory easily. I think these two pictures show that the most clearly. His face is so relaxed in todays shot. Lots of tension and the grimacey smile in the second one. The shot on the left is precious to me as I can count on one hand the number of pictures I have like that .
But regardless of the pictures, my love for this guy is unchanged. He is zany, whacky and will sometimes drive me round the bend, but that is all beside the point. He also has a true deep caring for large issues of injustice a desire to help people in the wider world and definately believes in not wasting our planets resources. Happy Birthday Chet!
