My Firstborn...


Wow...14.

Fourteen years old.

I can hardly believe it!

On this very day, 14 short years ago, I looked into those tiny little eyes...and I made a vow.

A vow to provide you with the best life I possibly could. A vow to do my very, very best to raise you to be a fine, wonderful man.

And you are almost there!

Oh, you have the wonderful part down pat...it's just hard for me to realize that you are, indeed, becoming a man!

Right before my very eyes!

I am so proud of you...you are a fabulous person, a wonderful son, a terrific brother (well, I think so...your siblings might disagree sometimes!), and a kind and thoughtful human being.

I love that you don't mind hanging out with us...and that you love babies!

I am so grateful for you...for YOU who first made me a mother!

(Aw...look! One candle left for Betty Braunschweger!)

I love you more that I can ever express...you light up my life with your humor, your thoughts...I'm amazed.

It's hard for me to believe, but in 4 years...4 very short years...you will be "leaving". But I hope and I pray, that you will never go too far.

That even if geographically we are far apart (but please, oh please, oh please don't move far away!!!), that we will remain close at heart.

I love you Big A. I am incredibly proud of you.

And I am honored to call you mine.

  12. Handsome young man. Time goes by so quickly for mothers. My children did not move far away from me, because they said I would just follow them so why waste the money moving. They are characters. Happy Bday to you son.

    My kids didn't leave home at 18, they just went away to college and cost us more than ever! LOL That out of state tuition . . .
    But it's all worth every penny.
