My Baby Boy is 10 Today!

8:57 PM

 My oldest son turned 10 today. Although we celebrated his birthday a few weekends ago, today is his actual birthday. It is so hard to believe that the grown-up boy I see today is the same little baby I used to rock to sleep every night. Stubborn, hard headed, and boy does he have a mouth on him, take all that away though and deep down he is the sweetest little boy who writes his mommy "I love you" letters and gives his leftover birthday money to charities for children when he is shopping at Toys R' Us.

Each year for the last few years, I have posted countless ads on Craigslist sites in each state and countries around the World, asking people to send a card for him to a P.O. Box for safety reasons. This was an idea born of desperation one year around his birthday when we were low on funds, but I wanted to make his day special. Now it has become tradition. It truly restores your faith in humanity when the cards start pouring in.

I am including some pictures from last year as I won't put the cards on the entertainment center anymore cause they left marks and no other area is big enough. The ones from this year (250 of them) are going into binders for safe keeping. Hug your little ones close, because before you know it they will be all grown up!

Happy Birthday my Little Man!
