In the Blink of An Eye

Monday, November 3, 2008

Yesterday morning, before Drama Kid's second birthday party (yes, two I'm a sucker and softie, sue me). I watched the video from his first birthday and got all teary.

I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. Before I had him life seemed to move at a normal pace. Slow even. But
the minute the doctor put him in my arms, time seems to have accelerated tenfold. Maybe pushing a baby out releases something into the atmosphere?

I look at him when he doesn't know I'm watching and sometimes the love, pride, honor at being his mom, protectiveness and fear for the day he strikes out on his own overwhelms me. He is such an incredible little man.

Dear Drama Kid-
In the blink of an eye you have
gone from baby to boy. You bypassed crawling, hit the ground running and never looked back. Your fearlessness has stopped my heart more times than I like to count. Your sensitivity, empathy and loving nature makes me smile.

You are the light and joy in our lives and we thank God for blessing us with you. We wish you love, health, peace and happiness in your sixth year. You are, and always will be, my precious cargo. Happy birthday! We love you so, so much!


  1. Happy Birthday Drama Kid!
    He's growing into a handsome young man!

  2. Oh, happy birthday to him! And condolences to you, mama. It's hard watching them grow up. {{{{Melanie}}}}

  3. Happy Birthday to Drama Kid!

    The faceless friends are kinda freakin' me out!

  4. Happy B-day. What a sweet post.

  5. You won't believe how time accelerates even more now-you'll blink and he'll be a (sob!) teenager!

  6. @Amy the mom- please don't go there. I'm not ready!


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
