there's a monster at the end of this post



please stop.

please cease reading and breathing.

please just turn back now.

I'm begging you - you don't know what you are doing to me.

I can't handle how this is going to end.


you know who I'm talking to.

If you turn 18 tomorrow, I will hold my breath and die.

Please stop aging, it is aging ME!!!

WHY do you have to grow up???

If you were bit by a vampire (i know of a nice family) then you would have to stay 17 FOREVER!

I just can't bear the monstrous feelings of ...... I don't know what, but they are monstrous.

Maybe I'm looking at this all wrong.??

Maybe it's not ABOUT ME???

But then WHY do I feel like a monstrous sob is sneaking out?

Perhaps I should just do as you do one one's birthday and say happy birthday. ???

I guess I could.

What would it change? Nothing, he's not going to stay 17 just because I don't want to acknowledge his birthday.


Ok, I can do it. I can be supportive.

Here it goes.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my FAVORITE BABY BROTHER who also is now technically an ADULT. I love you little bro!

It is a little shocking! I think we all want austin to stay much younger forever! We miss the boy who would laugh hysterically over everything and anything and could not stop.

What a cute post!

I actually had the Grover book "Monster At The End of The Story" when I was a little girl. It was a favorite of mine. So much so, that I searched for it for my kids. They love tunning the last page.

Happy Birthday Austin!

First off: Austin is the bomb. we all know that. But did you know that he is the "Student of the Year" at QCHS, not to mention "Senior of the Year"?

Also, I was expecting to see a bowling ball with really big holes at the end-- as the monster of course. Thanks, Jen. Good choice of pictures.
