My best 6 yearsWhile it is usually true that a mother doesn't
There was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to be a mom. If I could have fast-forwarded through middle school and high school to be married and starting a family, I so would have. I could.not.wait. to start that chapter of my life. I probably scared off a few guys back in the day with the "how many kids do you want" and "I want a BIG family" talk.
I thank God every day that a) I suckered a guy into marrying me and b) my dreams of becoming a mother came true.
I'll be the first to tell you that my Ethan? He is destined for greatness. This kid is every mother's dream. As an infant, complete strangers would stop me in public to comment on what a beautiful baby he was and how his eyes just radiated happiness. As he grew older his sweet little voice and contagious belly laugh would leave me beaming with pride.
This boy has wit and charm. A huge heart and a sensitive soul. He is creative. Busy. Intelligent. Compassionate. He's got a sense of humor beyond his years. He is an amazing brother to Aiden and a huge helper with Hudson. It's easy to see why I am so beyond proud to have been chosen as his momma.
And BOY oh BOY this kid is handsome. Amiright?
I can honestly say that these past 6 years have been my best. Not necessarily always happy. And Lord knows not always easy. But definitely my best. And Ethan is one of the main reasons why.
"Do you feel like you're about to be six?" I asked Ethan in the car.
"Yes." He responded. "Because I'm bigger. I'm a lot smarter. And I just feel six."
Well there ya go. Happy birthday sweet boy. We love you SO very much!
