Now my little punk is 5 years old!!! He will be in school this year. Wow. Though I have impatiently waited for the day to come when I would celebrate my kid going off to school (totally selfish in thinking that I would be happier with one less kids needing me for everything), the reality is getting closer and a small hole is forming in my heart. I might as well accept that I will not cope very well when my buddy goes to off to school. He eventually won't need me to tie his shoes...but my hope is that he will still want my hugs and kisses when he can do everything else by himself.
He is so excited about his birthday and this is the year that we all will spend his birthday together with our little family. No big party. No crazy kids running 'round. Just us four, telling Ashton about the day he was born and how thankful we are to have him in our lives.
Happy Birthday Ash! I love you so stinkin' much!!! Love, your Mommy
