Today is my baby's 17th birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OMG where did the time go? it seems I was just taking him home and scared to be a new mommy and now he's 17 yrs old with a full beard!!!!!!!!!!!
First thing this morning I said Happy Birthday we'd had a little party for him in August can't trust this September weather, but I'm going to muster up all that's in me to bake him a cake and he asked if we could get some jiffy popcorn then watch a movie we have on the dvr that no one has seen yet, he knows we don't have a lot of money and he said mom our family time is important to me.... WHAT 17 YR OLD SAYS THAT??????? He's a gem!!!!!!!!!
He's the one that took care of me after his dad left for work yesterday, getting me the heating pad, warming up my neck wrap, getting pills and making me lunch, yes you heard that right.
I was telling him this morning how I'd already left for the hospital and before I went I had taken a shower , done my hair and put on make up (smile) he says yeah mom that sounds like you (smile)....
He'll turn 17 yrs old officially at 738pm and says he wants to celebrate with a root beer (he's not allowed to drink a lot of soda ), I can't tell you the amount of joy this young man has brought into my life as the tears roll down my face not just from pain, but because of memories of this young man growing up in that will forever live in my heart.
Before he left for school this morning he came to me gave me a kiss as he does every morning, said I love you, I gave him a big hug and said I love you too happy birthday and have a nice day.....
PJ, love always mom! (I know he won't see this but its out in the universe)
