This past Sunday
marked my 5 year anniversary of being a mommy was my little man’s 5th birthday. It’s hard to believe that I somehow managed to keep this kid alive for 5 years! especially after I shot him in the face the other day. The poor little guy has been dragged through so much shit with me as his mother, yet so far he seems a little emotional at times relatively unscathed. Every day I look at him I am amazed at how much he has changed from that first time I looked into his big brown eyes.
My little man has gone from a baby with no neck
he slightly resembled the Michelin Tire guy to this long lanky…..boy. Like a real boy. He now has a fully developed attitude complete with a New Yorker’s temper. He was born in New Jersey so I am in no way surprised by this. He likes to steal his sister’s toys when her back is turned and taunt her with threats of locking her in her bedroom. She usually retaliats by punching him in the head.
I still can’t believe that I made such an amazing little human being. Someone who has the compassion of an adult. Someone who hugs his sister behind my back to show her he cares. Someone who notices when I cry, but never calls me out on it in front of people. Someone who makes me proud every single day for being such a unique individual at such a young age and being proud of it. I love you with all my heart Theo. Happy birthday.
