It was a Tuesday eight years ago when I first met you. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday, while at others, I really can’t believe you are 8-years-old. It hasn’t all been easy, but I wouldn’t change a thing.
I can’t even put into words how much I love you.
Instead, in honor of your eighth birthday, I’m going to share 8 fantastic things about you, Mr. B.
The Creative King of the Castle
You can take any toy, stick, or kitchen gadget and turn it into hours of imaginitive play. You often are battling droids, conquering new lands, or discovering your enemies lare. Your imagination and creativity amazes me every day.
The Sensitive Artist
You make beautiful works of art. Your drawings and paintings are my favorite things to hang in the house.
Passion for Fashion
You’ve always had a love for hats. And you look darn cute in them.
Time is of No Importance
You make things happen in your own time. When you’re ready, you will do them.
I love that you still want to sit on my lap and cuddle with me. You love tickles on your back, and would probably let me carry you…if my own back could handle it.
Even before they were born, you were the best big brother to your twins. You made the best of a hard situation, and loved them from afar. (You also always thought there would be another one coming home from the hospital!)
Excitement in your Eyes
I love how excited you get about new things. You always have fun, and your sweet smile shows it. You still believe in magic, and I hope you always will.
Mr. B, you taught be how to be a mom, and showed me I had more love in my heart than I thought possible. You are funny and smart and keep us on our toes. You challenge me in the best ways, and make me want to be a better person.
Happiest of birthdays to you Mr. B!!!!! I love you!!!!
