Today my little boy turns six years old. It really does seem like just yesterday we were two nervous nelly parents-to-be about to welcome a child into the world and with no idea how to actually be parents. It still seems awesome to me that someone’s life has been placed in my care – nevermind two lives. How has it been six years already?

MM has had quite the year as a 5 year old – moving into his first house, starting kindergarten, learning to read, losing his first tooth! It’s been a milestone kind of year all around and I’m sure he has even more amazing things in store for him in his 6th year. I am constantly amazed by how clever, funny and kind my boy is. I am a lucky mother to have such an amazing little kid. He blows me away with the words he can read already and the topics he comprehends – with the numbers he can count to and the complex questions he asks on a daily basis, wanting to know everything about the world around him and how things work.


We surprised him this morning with a new bicycle for his birthday – a “big kid” bike with training wheels so he can really learn how to ride. With this and his scooter, he will be a boy on wheels this year, taking the neighborhood by storm!

Happy birthday to my favorite little knucklehead. I love you so much!
