It is happening again tomorrow.
I have so many thoughts running through my head right now, so many things that I want to remember that happened this year, but I feel like I am drawing a blank.
So for tonight I will have to suffice with telling you how much I love this kid.
He has my heart, he is my soul.
I would be lost in this crazy world if not for him.
He makes problems disappear.
He makes me smile when I don't feel like it.
He can push my buttons like no other.
He makes me feel like a super hero.
I would let him have my last bite of chocolate, my last spoon of ice cream, my last sip of pop.
I fill my tank with gas some days just to make him happy.
I could cuddle him in my arms all night if he would let me.
I am happy to drive around singing childrens songs with him.
I am happy to go looking for Mighty Machines and exclaim at their bigness.
I will answer the same questions over and over again.
I will give in to pickles, cheese strings and sandwich meat for breakfast.
I will always have a naptime treat in the palm of my hand.
I will always have a stash of ribbon, a jar of buttons or a secret toy waiting to cure the rainy day doldrums.
I will always worry about a split lip, gashed tongue or cut finger.
I will always relish the feeling of his little hand tucked into mine.
I will always replay the sound of him telling me he loves me in my head.
I will always be in awe of the love I feel for this child of mine.
It fills up my heart so much so days I'm sure I may explode.
He made me a mother, someone I love to be.
Happy Third Birthday Monkey.
Mommy loves you!
