My Darling Boy,
I can’t believe you turned 5 today. It seems like just the other day that I brought you home from the hospital.
I can’t believe you have started school and you must know that I miss you during the day.
I can’t believe how you have grown – not just physically but how you have developed into this lovely, caring child.
I love your quiet wit and your gorgeous smile.
I love how you have taught me to play ‘boy-ey’ games (as you say) – action figures, Ben 10, Avengers, Transformers and how to mock fight. I was strictly more a ‘doll’ kind of person before you came along.
I love how you say ‘I Love you’ and don’t stop till I say it back.
I love how you are still that huggable, kissable boy that you were as a baby. I know that being a boy, it will all stop soon and so I take all the hugs and cuddles I can get.
I hope you have enjoyed your day and your visit to the Build-a-bear workshop.
I hope your Dad and I made you happy on your birthday – as happy as you made us the day you were born and every single day to date after that.
I love you from the earth to the sky and back again and all round the world and back again.
