Today the baby of my flock turns 23. Happy Birthday Jesse!
He was always a bit of a terror, the cheekiest child in a cute way and got up to a fair bit of mischief but he always learned from these mis-adventures and has a real sense of who he is and what he wants out of life.
Although he does not suffer fools easily, if you earn his respect...you will have it for all time!
As he has matured he's learned that you can't have your cake and eat it...although he will give it a jolly good try!
But he is also a reliable, hardworking, sincere and sensitive bloke, who is maturing into quite the young man!
Jesse has always been an independent being, as soon as he completed his apprenticeship and became a fully fledged mechanic he moved out of home (about 2 years ago) and now shares a house with good mates from primary and high school days...Mitch being one of those neighbourhood BMX bikeriding friends and Will who's birthday is also this week...Happy Birthday Will!
However Jesse is always available if I call and need a hand, he is the man about the house when something needs fixing, undoing or assisting me in the garden and he is always willing to bail his sister out of car trouble if the need arises...like he did a couple of weeks ago when her power steering belt went and she thought it had something to do with her having the heater on high!!!!
Creativity is an important part of a balanced life and all my children explore this in one form or another, Jesse mixes his own music...I call him the DJ Mechanic...I know he is groaning now...sorry Jesse!
Happy birthday darling...see you tonight!
