The Big 8… He’s Ready. Me… Not So Much.

My baby boy turned eight years old today… and honestly… I’m struggling with it a bit.

Eight is a big number. Half-way to driving… {heavy sigh}

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for him. He’s growing up and he’s such an amazingly happy kid. He brings laughter into our lives everyday.

I’m just a bit sad that I can’t cradle him in my arms anymore. 

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
