Happy 4th birthday to my superhero loving, dinosaur devotee, car crusading little man. Your sweet, tender nature is a pleasure. Your fear of all things is hysterical and your two handed hugs are heart warming.
It may seem at times that there is little room for you in this chaotic family. As the years have gone by, you have carved out your spot. Being the mascot and little buddy on every sports team Drew has been on has made you popular with all the big boys. You are always the first one to volunteer for snuggle time on the couch. Being Gabby’s playmate, model, punching bag has given you insight into women and an ability to defend yourself (although not enough). I fear that someday you will marry an overbearing, abusive woman as a result!!!
This last year has been a big year of growth. You have friends, your own social life, your own wishes for what you do. It breaks my heart that you wake up every day hoping it’s a school day so you can submerge into your own life. I’m grateful you have a love for school. I’m saddened that you are pulling away from me.
I’m so proud of the little boy you are. I’m so proud of your loving nature. I’m so grateful for your flexibility with choices. And I even love how you cling to me when any character comes near. Thank you for being exactly who you are my sweet 4 year old!
