Happy 5th birthday my sun. My son.
Five years ago today I experienced the best day of my life, and the days and years since have been just that with you. Each of your birthdays, I marvel at your growth and spirit, and note how privileged I am to not only parent you, but to celebrate milestones with you.
Thank you for being the littlest yet most significant teacher in my life, for helping me to see things just as they are meant to be seen, and for the small-big things that feed my soul – jumping on beds, building Lego, licking icing from a bowl, swinging you round and round until we both near collapse from dizziness.
For fear of being trite (but then again, why not?) I love you so much, and I wish you all the best in your fifth year. May you continue to fill our days with learning and joy, and may you continue to shine.
Thank you my sun, for an exceptional 1 826 days.
Yours in birthday cake and wishes,
