I can't believe it's finally here...the eve of Aiden's 4th birthday. Tonight when I told him it was May 17th in Vietnam his response was, "well maybe I should open a present then." Did I say I can't believe he's almost four?
I asked him to stop growing but he said he wouldn't. I told him I might cry because my baby boy is growing up...."Mom, there's no crying on birthdays."
Of course I did cry a bit tonight. Tears of joy for the honor and privilege to have such an amazing son. Tears thinking of the woman 9000 miles away who gave birth to such a wonderful boy four years ago...wishing I could tell her how special he is...how much joy he brings to so many.

Being a mom is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. It's also the most challenging. There are some rough days...very rough days. But there are more good days than rough days and in the grand scheme of things. the good days are what I will remember. I am so fortunate to be a mom to such an amazing little boy. He is funny, smart, caring and thoughtful.
