14....


a year ago i bent over to kiss the top of his head....
and now he can bend over to kiss mine...
we watched toy story 3 together...
and this mommy struggled behind her 3d glasses....
....because andy grew up...
and my little guy
(who long ago wrote his name on the bottom of buzz's foot, too)
is now 6 feet tall.... & isn't soooo little anymore
i'm so glad that he's not old enough to go off to college (like andy)
and so glad that...
in every way he's growing into the man i prayed he would be.
.
happy birthday, b
love you

happy bday b. it is so bittersweet to see them grow up. So confident and big, yet playful and loving at least some of the time. Just measured height with my 14 year old - we are both 5' 10"...

Reading this in Starbucks and I think the barista is looking over and wondering if the crying girl in the corner is ok....
Toy Story 3 was brutal... and I wasn't even thinking about b at the time. Good thing - I was a big sobbing mess when I left there! And b's bday week should be only happy thoughts. :)
