That I will never have another 6 year old child
I clean house all day to get ready for a birthday party
That my baby boy is another year older
I can't hardly believe that my little boy, my handsome little man with duck butt curls, is 7 years old today. I still remember being in the hospital with him and visiting him every day - twice a day. I remember his two tooth smile and dumping the entire thing of sugar on the floor when I wasn't looking. I remember the first little girl he really liked and how much he used to love holding his sisters hand. I remember his first days at school and me not wanting to leave him alone there. I remember the first time he played a "shooting game" on the xbox with Daddy. I remember his nightmares and his scared thoughts while his daddy has been deployed. And I will always remember the look on his face when he said "Mommy, I don't want to be 7 because then maybe you won't be able to pick me up and hug me no more."
And just some news for you dear boy, when you are 18 years old I will still pick you up and hug you tighter then ever!
I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living, My baby you'll be!!! - Robert Munsch
