I was torn about writing a birthday post for my adult child. Is he too old for this? Probably. But I can’t seem to let the day go without doing it. I’ve been writing them every year, although most of them are currently in “draft” mode as I try to sort through a decade worth of parenting entries. I just feel like birthday can’t pass on my blog without a post recognizing it.
Happy birthday to the magical child who still turned out to be a decent human being even when I spent the first 5 years of his life trying to learn how to be a decent human being myself. He is my inspiration in so many ways, making me want to be braver and honor my creative and adventurous spirit. He is a light in all of our lives and I hope that this year is amazing for him…he deserves nothing less.
