Eleven years ago tonight, I went to bed for the last time without being a mom. My son, Alex, was born on October 6, 2010. It was a Wednesday, just like this year.
How have eleven years gone by?
Eleven is electric scooters and bike riding with friends to 7-11
Eleven is more freedom
Eleven is thicker books and more homework
Eleven is watching movies that are too scary for me
Eleven is soccer tournaments and flag football games
Eleven is fishing with cousins
Eleven is steakhouses and banana shakes
Elven is closer to twenty than one.
Happy Birthday to the bear of my heart, the one and only Alex. I couldn't love you more.
