Birthday Boy

yesterday he started kindergarten.
today he turns six.
where has the time gone...

this little boy can make me want to pull my hair out one minute
and melt my heart the next.

he got a little choked up this morning as i was leaving.
in a shaky voice he said, "when are you coming back to get me?"
it took every ounce of will power in me to simply smile and say,
"in a few hours".
what i really wanted to do was grab him and run.
with tears streaming down my face.
yelling, "school - schmool!  it's you birthday!!!"

i left him wearing his birthday crown.
{his teacher so gently put on his head.}
and all of his new friends saying "happy birthday!"

i love you sweet boy.
thank you for being a fighter.
and for giving me the gift of motherhood
for the second time...
six years ago.
