Rock Star

My son was a ROCK STAR! There's no other way to say it. Even before he was born he was awesome. His name started out because I wanted to name him after a friend of mine named Thomas. That ended up being Tommy Lee. His dad and I looked at each other when we were coming up with the name of our little guy and we both knew it as soon as it came out of his mouth that would be his name. Both of us have always been huge Motley Crue fans, especially Tommy Lee.

Our son would have to be born hard core. He would have to fight for every breath, every heartbeat. Naming him after a Rock God seemed natural. How bad ass is Tommy Lee when he flips upside down and drums in the rotating cage? Fearless.

If you look closely at the picture above, Tommy is holding his dad's drumsticks. They're Tommy Lee signature series. Fitting for my little rock star. He was fearless, charismatic, hard core. We named him just right.
