My Dearest Boy Wonder,
You’re almost there buddy, almost to the double digits you’ve been longing to be since you were all of 4 years old.
You were always my serious little boy – always thinking, always wondering, always seeing beauty where I never even thought to look.
I can’t pretend to understand all the things you spend so much time thinking about, but I do know this:
It still melts my heart every time you call me “Mommy”. I don’t hear it very often anymore but when I do, I feel my eyes well up with tears.
I know the last few years have been a huge sacrifice for you but I promised you it would be worth it, and look baby – it was.
My sweet boy, if you wanted to keep calling me “Mommy”, that wouldn’t be so bad.
Happy Birthday Sunshine.
May your light keep shining bright!
I love you,
