Ten years ago, this little guy arrived on my birthday and changed my life forever.
With him, I became a mother. With him, my birthday became our birthday. With him, I found a new part of myself.
I remember what a big deal it was to turn 10. When age went from one digit to two. He's thrilled and I'm quite freaked out. I'm realizing, in a more real way than on any birthday before, just how quickly he's growing up. So, I'm hanging on to every last bit of childhood that he has left.
Happy Birthday dear Buddy. I love you more than you know.
