On some Fridays, my SocialVoice blog will feature posts that are decidedly more personal, and less business focused. --- My son, Amani, turned 2 on Wednesday, and there wasn't a prouder dad around.
I'll love Amani no matter what he does, of course, but I was especially impressed with him on the night of his birthday. You see, he was pigging out on mac & cheese (two-plus helpings)! And for Amani, a full meal of any kind is most unusual.
Since he's been six months old, Amani been an extraordinarily picky eater. He'll gulp down milk, water, and juice like there's no tomorrow, but solid foods? That's another story entirely. Some days, he'll eat little more than a slice or two of bread and a few cheerios -- and only after he's thrown a tantrum over having to do so.
So really, my wife and I are hoping that the forthcoming 12 months will be the Terrific Twos for Amani -- and that he's turning over a new dietary leaf.
And one other thing? There's something about a cute photo or video of a 2-year-old that even provokes my parents to leave a comment.
That's a social media success story worth putting into one of my upcoming presentations, don't you think?
