Letters to Someone - Birthday Edition

If you don't love sappy sweet and only read my posts because I am hilarious this isn't the post for you. All of my posts this week are about my sweet baby boy and his birthday tomorrow. This week's letter is just to him. If you want funny you can always go see Shortmama and her friends. Someone there will crack you up. Guaranteed!

For My Son ~

To say that I love you is the most gross understatement of my life. There is no measure of any mother’s love, but my love and admiration for you go well beyond a mother loving her son. I could name hundreds and hundreds of reasons why I love you, but in honor of your 8th birthday I want to tell you the top 8 reasons that I love you so deeply. Just eight.

(1) You are the kindest person I have ever known. You are warm and generous to an absolute fault and are a true inspiration.

(2) Your love and devotion to your family takes my breath away. I adore how easily you show love to your entire family.

(3) Even without your front teeth you have the most precious face ever.

(4) You are an extraordinary student. At eight your vocabulary is better than most adults we know and you are excelling in every subject. You make me so proud!

(5) Your confidence as an Athlete is mind blowing. I admire you so much for never even considering that you may not be as big, as fast or as skilled as your opponents. You play with all your heart every time you play and the translation of that to your success amazes me every.single.time.

(6) You are truly hilarious.  You have a ridiculous sense of humor and are wittier than any 8 year old should be.

(7) I never knew what an "Old Soul" was until I met you.  Now I get it.  And I like it.

(8) Knowing that God picked your Daddy and me for you makes me believe that there really is a purpose for everyone on earth.  You save me from myself over and over again and God is using you to do his work here.  I believe that with all my heart.

Happy Birthday, my sweet boy.  You mean the world to me and I hope that you get everything you want in life.  There really is no one who deserves it more.

With All My Love,

Your Mom

Happy Birthday to your son! I think there is just something about the bond between a mother and her son. I know my son and I have always been really close, and thankfully still are.

This made me tear up. I have two boys and even imagining them as 8 year olds makes me all sniffly.

Lovely letter and what a beautiful boy you have. Happy birthday and congrats to you both.
