An almost 7 year quest has come to a very happy end in our household this week. I have kept it a closely guarded secret for the last few weeks and only told 2 people before it was official.

Last night we had some good friends over for dinner. Some of you who read this will know them, our next door neighbors Paige and Mario and little Noah. I made a special dinner, all Japanese food because it was a special night and they appreciate good Japanese food. I even had a glass of wine :)

Half way through dinner, Dama and I asked Mario if he would be Lucas' Godfather. He proudly accepted.

I have known Mario for 3 years now and have come to know him best in the past year or so. I have watched as he took a special interest in Lucas. Always listening to his stories, letting him "help" in the garden even when he wasn't really "helping", talking to Lucas about issues that have come up (fighting with his sister etc), and just plain playing with him in the cul de sac. I have always felt like Mario had a soft spot for Lucas and Lucas has made it very clear about his love for Mario.

Plus it helps to have Godfather who is a Harley dude.

It just feels really good....7 years of looking for someone that I knew would care for Lucas and it's finally official.

After they left, I gave Dama and big hug and told him how glad I was and how now we are stuck with Mario for life ;P Had to get a swipe in there!



Glad you had a wonderful dinner. I'm so happy for you and Lucas! And I'm sure Mario is proud to be Godfather to such a sweet boy!


Congratulations! to Lucas for selecting such a really awesome godfather!--he will be a great role model for you and will always be there for you when you need him!---except when you want a black leather jacket and and a BMW Motorbike to ride to school!!!--right Mario??!!
Congrats to Mario too!
