Day 54: My son’s birthday

It’s February 23, and my son is turning 15 today.

I’m so grateful he came into my life 15 years ago.

One of my many vivid memories of that day, right after he was born, was re-seeing, re-experiencing and understanding the word “birthday,” in a whole new way.

To celebrate my son’s birthday, I would like to post here, for your entertainment,  a YouTube video he made, several years ago.

I think my son is very creative and funny. And I love showing this video to people because it makes me laugh, every time I watch it, and I think it captures how creative and funny he is — and has been, since he was really young.

I checked with him to see if it was okay if I posted this today and he said it was. (And I showed him this whole post before I published it, too.)

Here’s the YouTube video, called “The Misheard Lyrics of ‘Louie Louie.'”

As I am posting this, it has over 54,000 views on YouTube!

It makes a mother proud.

But not as proud as I am about my son, and the person he is.  And not just on his birthday — every day.

Happy Birthday, Aaron!


Your mother

    I remember back when Aaron made this video and you posted it for the first time. I actually saved it and have looked at it many times because I think it’s so very clever and just classic. Thanks for the laughs!
    Happy Birthday to Aaron!

    I remember this video too, and I thought at the time what a clever kid, my grandson turns 15 tomorrow
    so I can relate as a mother and grandmother…

  3. Love this video!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The video is still funny after many viewings. (I was catching up on posts, but jumped ahead. After all, why be obsessed by the notion of linear progression?)

  6. I just found this and, guess what? I saw your son’s Misheard Lyrics video before I first read a post on your blog. It seems to be a very small world.

    He is talented and creative and his video still makes me laugh.

    • As Steven Wright said, “It’s a small world, but I wouldn’t want to paint it.” This makes me very happy, that you saw my son’s video (and also, what you just wrote about it).
