I’m flying to New York for my grandson’s third birthday – it’s his upshern. That’s his first haircut. I’m so excited! I remember when he was just a little cutie pie and now he’s already three! It’s really hard to believe. He’s the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen! You know what? Hold on, I think I might have a picture of my little bubbaleh.
