A letter to my 12 year old

little boyDear 12 year old son

You are amazing.. you made me who I am today.  12 years ago you came in to this world.. you were not ready to come 43+ hours of induced labor you were not ready to arrive then.  My blond haired blued boy.. I was almost 30 and still was not sure I was ready .. but there you were.  All 21 inches 6.8 lb tall and skinny.  You are mine and no one else will be your mom.. you are always my boy.

Everyone said you were a Toe Head  .. it means blond hair blue eyes. I had to look it up. (random thought)

I love everything about you.  You may look like your Dad but I get you.  I know who you are,  you like me.  You can get frustrated at yourself.  Remember it always works out.  Your life is limitless  you can accomplish anything.. continue to think differently and outside the box.  It is much more fun and fulling life.

Your compassion.. you have show compassion and empathy for others from an early age.  Please continue to do some it is one of your greatest gifts. Please find time to give to others.. you will never regret it.

I love that fact that you are kind and even to your sister.

When you can travel see the world and experience new things. You will not regret it.

2 things:

Learn to cook a man who cooks can always feed himself.

Learn to dance a man who can dance is never alone

When you walked away today .. I felt it you are getting older, bigger, and growing into a man.. It makes me sad but also grateful that I was blessed with such a amazing son.

Happy Birthday!

Love Mom 12 year old boy

12 is such a great age…they’ve still got some little boy in them, but definite traces of growing up too. He’s a beautiful young man and I loved your letter. Happy Birthday to him!
