Happy Birthday Little Prince!

 I can't believe it has been four years since you came into my life.  I had no idea how much my life would change...and how much you would change me.  Your cheery little face brightens every single day and my heart melts every time you tell me, "You're my best best hero"

You have taught me patience in a way no one and nothing else could.  You have also tried my patience but that's your job and you are doing it tremendously well.

You take such delight in the simplest of things I tend to overlook...the moon, a winter carrot found in the garden, stickers, a bowl of marshmallows....all the little things. 

We live in a world of Thomas the train these days and I hope your love of trains continues as we have a long history of railway in our family.  In the meantime we inhabit the island of Sodor and trip over little trains on the stairs and I love every minute of it.

You are the sweetest little boy and as much as people always tell me what a great mom I am, it's you who makes me look good. You are so smart, you read well beyond your years and work hard at math, puzzles, building birdhouses and gardening.  You are such a big help!

My favourite time of the day is when we sit together for cuddles before bed and we have our little conversations, ten squeezes, kisses, nose kisses and a hug.  For those few minutes you are all mine and I am all yours.  I hope we never outgrow that.

You make me better than I am, and for that little one, I am forever grateful.


I love you with all my heart, Mommy xoxo

Have a fabulous day!

Happy birthday! That was so sweet! Oh how I miss the days of Thomas. Out of all my son's different interests Thomas the tank is still my favorite. It lasted until he was 7. I hope you have a great day with him filled with lots of hugs.

Dearest A,

Lovely post and it will make a great memory for later.
What happened to all your photos? Hope nothing serious...
Would have loved to see your sweet 3-year old of course!
Have a great mid-week.
