Birthdays, Boys and Blogs

Hi, little dude. You turned three years old today, and your dad and I are so proud of your loving heart and huggable self.

Three years ago, I could not have imagined how a child would change every aspect of my life, and we're on the cusp of another enormous step. I hope we're among the folks who say, "Your old life already got trashed with the first baby, so the second one is a piece of cake" instead of the others who say, "Two is sooooooo hard." The one thing that I do know is that there is so much love, from us to him, from him to us, all the doting grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, that I couldn't be happier to be part of this family.

Q got to wear the birthday crown and cape at preschool today, and we'd been told we could bring a story, song, or dance for him to share with the children. I was disproportionately stressed about what to select and what favors to pack for the children, but all turned out well. Given the choice of his favorite tune from Riverdance, Hakuna Matata from The Lion King, or any other music, he insisted on bringing "Here It Goes Again" by Ok Go. He totally made the right choice, because it was an upbeat tempo to which the kids could bop along.

Happy Birthday, my beloved little boy.

And it also happens to by SwingDaddy and my second blog birthdays too! 675 posts so far.
