To my birthday boy
Five seems such a significant age. You’re a schoolboy now, full of personality and opinions. To me, it seems like such a short time ago that we brought you home from the hospital. To you, it was a lifetime ago.
I look at you and can’t believe how you’ve grown. Sometimes I still expect to see that little baby or the toddler you so recently were. But you’re too busy showing me how you can ride your bike without stabilizers to notice.
This year we said goodbye to Octonauts and Thomas the Tank Engine and hello to Beyblades and Skylanders. When we play board games now, we use the real rules, and you no longer win just because I let you.
Happy birthday my little man. I can’t wait to see what fun five brings to us.
