My baby turns 21 today. If you’re a mom, I don’t have to tell you how quickly these years have flown by. These years have produced lots of laughs, a few tears, many gray hairs, some sleepless nights (more in the past few years than when he was a baby!) Chad began sleeping all night when he was about 6 weeks old. Until he turned 17, I could count on one hand the number of times he’d kept me awake. Now, I’ve lost track! 🙁
I’m very proud of the young man Chad has grown to be. He enjoys life; he can talk his way out of almost every situation; he always has a smile; he loves to talk to old people and he’s just an overall good kid.
Despite my complaining, or as Chad would say . . my constant griping — these last 21 years have been fantastic years and I can’t imagine what my life would have been like without Chad.
He has to work tonight and I’m kinda happy about that. It means he will be staying in town so whatever partying he does, it will be happening here in town, close to home.
Happy Birthday, my sweet boy!
