He IS one of the cutest kids I’ve ever seen. That smile is worth gold!
I remember when my ds turned 5, having an epiphony of sorts. I sat down with him that night, to tuck him into bed and say his prayers. I was suddenly hit, like a bolt of thunder, with the realization that my little guy would not always be my little guy. . It occurred to me with stark reality that I wouldn’t always be able to sit down with him at night, on the edge of his bed, cuddling him, saying his prayers with him, etc. It seemed like such a natural part of our lives, and yet, I knew it wasn’t going to last.
Sure enough, it didn’t. My little guy will be 30 on his next birthday, and though we do still have a great, and close, relationship, he is a man, and nightly bedside chats now would just be…well, weird.
You hear it from everyone, “make the most of their childhood, 'cause it will be gone before you know it”, and yet it is SO TRUE.
Hug, love, and cuddle those little guys for all you’re worth for the next few years! :mrgreen:
And now, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OWEN!!! :present: :balloons:
