I have always loved reading Tuesday Tribute posted by other bloggers and decided it's time for me to write a tribute to my teenager Moe. (Tuesday's Tribute is hosted by Angie at "Seven Clown Circus.")
About two years ago, Renaissance Man was unemployed. We told Moe that our budget would be tight and that he had to make do with what we could provide. He stepped up to the plate and earned his own pocket money. We had a stock of energy drinks that was sent to RM from a company wanting to do business with him. Moe sold them during lunch at school and received quite a profit. (not sure if it was against the rules, but his teachers loved the drinks!) He also worked a few hours a week as a catering assistant and collected cans for recycling. He talked the caterer into letting him sell some of the catered foods at parties only if he could get a percentage of what he sold. The caterer agreed and a business deal was struck! RM has since been employed, and Moe retired from his entrepreneurial pursuits. He continues to be frugal with his money and doesn't take anything that we give him for granted.
Moe has always loved playing in the water. Whether it's in the swimming pool, playing with the water hose, or acting silly in the ocean.
When Moe was little he couldn't pronounce Grandma and called my mother "Granna" instead. They're very close and his eyes still light up when he knows his Granna is in town.
Moe will always be a Goofball, but he's MY adorable Goofball.
