3285 days






Happy Birthday Thing 2

3285 days ago at this exact time, my life dramatically changed when my second sweet boy came into this world. Over the last nine years, he has brought me much joy and also some tears. He has reminded me to hear the voices that call us from inside. He is a Renaissance child with a profound love for the arts and sciences. He's an indigo child and speaks to me with all of his heart and soul. He's in touch with his feminine side, loves to play dress up and gives me fashion tips when we go shopping. He's a naturalist and feels that he should care for every living thing. He loves to slay people with his wit, charm and charisma. He's Don Juan and opens doors, pulls out chairs and kisses women on the hand when he meets them. He drives his brother nuts with his wacky and eccentric ways. He summed it all up a few days ago by telling me that "being a phreak isn't easy but someone has to do it." Two devastating miscarriages and nearly two years after we started trying to have another child, our dream was realized. I love you! You were well worth the wait.

You must print this out and save it for him. Years from now, this will be something he cherishes - to know his mom's special thoughts about him. Happy Birthday Thing 2! (even if I am a day late!)
