2 of the craziest guys i know...

so there are days i wonder where baby noah gets his craziness. david and i are rather chill people and noah at times gets all crazy and loud.



so there is one major source that i can think of - my dad - bong. this is a photo of bong and baby noah during one of their first meetings.



my dad has a funny sense of humor. lots of people don't realize that he has an english name but in the end, he decided he liked bong better.

for those of you who have never met bong, if you are a fan of the office - bong is like the asian version of dwight. he believes in conspiracy theories, lots of locks on doors (even the garage door) and doesn't believe in wasting good printer ink on photo paper (yeah i know). at one point, he and his brothers were obsessed about growing peonies in their gardens and would talk about it for hours each night.

when bong was introduced to jess' hubby at memory trends, bong said to him "hello, i am bong, james bong" - so it is that type of humor. and even though baby noah is only 11 months old and can't really say anything, i can see that sort of bong glimmer in his eyes sometimes.

deb and i have learned our lesson about calling our dad up to tell him that we are sending him something (say for example photos) of his grandsons. we just let it arrive as a surprise. why? because if we call the day we send something, he will call us and ask when it will arrive and if we have a tracking number and what if he has to go out in the afternoon when the mail arrives.
but it is all good - LOL. we just know where noah gets it from now.

I think that I would really like your dad - the clincher was the "I am Bong... James Bong"!! Now that's my kind of humour! :D

I cannot wait to meet your Dad. I think the two of us will have lots of fun. AND... I have got to ask him all about peonies! I have one bush in my yard. It is my most favorite flower.
