Today was Jared's 7th birthday. My first son. My beautiful blue-eyed, smart, funny, stubborn, scrawny boy with a smile that melts my heart. So many things have happened in his short little life - my divorce from his father, my remarriage and subsequent divorce, numerous moves, the death of his step-father...and the list goes on endlessly. I can only hope and pray that I am teaching him right from wrong.
We didn't do much for his birthday because it snuck up on me quickly. I made stromboli for supper at his request, and we had cake and ice cream for dessert. A friend is coming over after school for a playdate tomorrow. And we'll go shopping on Saturday so he can pick something out. Calm and laid-back celebrating - that's how we roll.
I love you, Jare-Bear!
And now hopefully, I can get this to post, since blogger appears to be in a coma still....the wonders of modern technology!
