You are so precious to me. I love you, forever.
I wished you happy birthday a dozen times yesterday, but 6 is still hard to believe!
You were so confident and at ease with your friends yesterday. I love to see you as one of the gang. Happy and excited and wild at the thought of pizza and a movie on a school night, just like the other boys.
There was a magic moment on the way to the theater, with you on my lap and your three friends buckled into the backseat, when everyone was singing along with Frozen at the top of their voices... I felt a release from the last of the worries I'd been allowing to keep shackled to my heart.
You're six now, and the ways that you are different from other six year olds are beautiful, and will only enrich your life and not hinder it. In that moment I could see the future, and those worries were all for nothing.
M, you're smart as a whip-that will get you far. And you're funny and kindhearted, so you'll always be able to find good people to surround yourself with. What more does a six year old need?
Happy birthday my beautiful, darling boy.
