Okay, so my son is not a Hindu god. I mean, there are so many other multi-limbed deities to choose from. Where’s the elephant trunk, for one? Also, he’s kind of the Placer in My Path of Obstacles, rather than the Remover thereof (one of Ganesha’s attributes). Except I did read where Ganesh places obstacles in the paths of those who need them. So maybe I’m on target here. Alas.
And then there’s that Lord of Beginnings thing, that’s pretty apropos, too. First boy. A pretty sweet beginning.
