Love the Boy!

At 7:45 PM fourteen years ago, this boy arrived:

Of course, he was much smaller then. He was an adorable little peanut and he’s still an adorable peanut – just a bigger one.

Throughout the years, he’s brought me more joy than I could ask for and a whole lot of laughs, like . . .

. . . shouting across the mall at Christmas time, “Look, Mommy, Canna Sauce!”

. . . driving past the Milford green right after Thanksgiving, seeing the white lights decorating all of the trees, and whispering, “Look what Mommy did.”

. . . kneeling on the floor of his bedroom angrily throwing all of his Matchbox cars and Hot Wheels and mumbling under his breath, “F*&#ing cars.”

. . . years later, coming home from first grade asking me what the “F” word was. “Is it fudge? Fib?”

. . . and asking me just the other day, “Can a person as old as you go out and still call it a date?”

I could go on forever. I love this boy and I wish him a long life full of funnies.

    God! Seeing what you had to say about your son makes me want to have children even more. Hmmmm….I think I’ll tell Matt I’m ready before tax season comes along.

    Please tell your son “Happy Birthday” from one of your SnB ladies, please??

    Happy Birthday to M!

    And tell him the F-word is something he won’t have to worry about for many years — “Forty.” πŸ˜‰
