Today is my baby's birthday - he turns 9! Has it been 9 years already? I can't believe it, he's so tall and slender, just like his daddy. He has a heart of GOLD and is warm, tender, loving, and a temper that would rock this planet! And he is curious and funny, and has the most imaginative little mind. The other day he asked me "Mom, who is Bloody Mary? - Is she sisters with Mary, the mother of Jesus"? Dare I tell this child that no it's a mixed drink? I could hardly contain myself. I could go on and on, like when he went on a field trip with his kindergarten class to the pumpkin patch, and came home with a "WHITE" pumpkin - ha! Or when he was so angry at his daddy because he didn't put money in every single Salvation Army tin we passed during Christmas shopping, because he insisted that those people needed this money daddy...it's not fair they need help, and then rushed in the door and scoured his drawers for any change and loose bills he could find! That's my boy, who finds beauty in things that are different, and he always routes for the underdog, part of what makes him the special person that he is. He is truly an angel among us, and we adore this beautiful boy!
Happy Birthday Mr. "A"!
