Sometimes, I like to joke that we've grown up together, because with a firstborn, everything is new and we're learning the ropes together as parent and child. I know it's been said by many others and those more eloquent than I, but it truly it is amazing that once you become a mom, it changes everything... from the way you look and think, to the extraordinary way you feel. I did not know just how much love my heart could hold. Now I know and I cherish the blessings that come with the gifts children are.
Okay, I'll leave the rest of my mushy Mom thoughts to scribble in his card (he's bound to give an awkward, semi embarrassed eye roll over that... but I know being told everyday that you are loved, is never too much). When he was little, I would say that in order to grow up big and strong, he had to have lots of hugs and "I love yous". Today, I can tell him that it worked. ;o)
