Today I am taking a break from my soap box to say how very thankful I am for having the best eight year old ever. Today we celebrated my G’s eighth birthday and it is crazy to think that he is already eight. Time flies when you are having fun. He is a smart, funny, sensitive, caring, thoughtful, and polite little man and I am so proud to be his mom. He is kind, he is smart, and he is important and I try to remind him of that everyday.
