Three today

My little man.  Today you are three.  Three whole years old.  Where on earth has that time gone?  What a journey we've been on together.  Three years in, I finally feel like I'm beginning to get into the swing of things.   I feel like a "proper" Mummy.  You are more than a credit to me.  Yes, there are times I've found it hard, there still are times I find it hard, and I have no doubt there will be times in the future that will be hard.  I have no doubt, though, that you are more than worth it.  I am so proud of you.  Bright, happy, polite, talkative.  Every day you make me laugh and smile.  Every day you brighten the world around me and enrich my life.

Last night I put you to bed, kissed you goodnight, kissed my two year old goodbye.  Tonight I put you to bed a vivacious three year old.  Tonight you broke my heart (in a good way) when you sang to me "You are so beautiful to me".

So many new experiences await you.  In September you start preschool.  I know you're going to change in leaps and bounds once you start there.  Part of me is crying inside, the other part of me know it's going to be a fantastic experience for both of us.  I expect I will find it harder than you.  You small people embrace change and adapt so much better than us olds do.  I should take a leaf out of your book!

I can't wait to spend each moment with you.

My light, my little man, my Ethan.

I love you.



Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
