First, let me say Happy Birthday to my first born!!! Thomas turned 11 today and I can barely stand it! I can still feel those labor pains if I think back to where I was at this time 11 years ago! I am also saddened, in a way, to see how much time has changed Mommyhood for me and life for him. He most certainly wasn’t interested in having a birthday party this year. The days of Chuck E Cheez, Bowling and Miracle Maze parties are behind us now. Sniff Sniff.

Another change was in his gift list. I won’t be shopping for Thomas the Tank Engine anymore. His tremendous collection of Matchbox cars is now complete. I know … that was all about six years ago, but it is glaringly clear that he is much more interested in “what is cool” now and even his bike is borderline these days. I dread the idea of heading to the Mall looking at Hollister or Abercrombie and Fitch clothing. ARRRGHH! He wants the newest and latest cell phone so he can call and text … who? I am not sure. Shhhhhh~ don’t tell, but he will be waiting on these gifts for awhile.

We went for ice cream tonight instead of singing the birthday song around the kitchen table. He wanted to get home to see the finale of American Idol. So I didn’t have to bake and decorate a cake. Heck, I didn’t even have to go buy one! Think of the money I saved on candles?! This is all good, right? I am so proud of my baby and happy to see him growing into a handsome, intelligent, kind young man. I just really miss my Baby Mommy Years. And that’s on me, not him.

So I think we will both be excited to head into the last few weeks of elementary school and enjoy the next stage that childhood brings. It is another journey, for sure. Of course, I still have two more coming up behind him and we can still be really silly when no one is looking!

Happy Birthday Sweetheart. I love you.

Peace,

Has Blogging Become One Big Chore?

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”

We have all been there, right? Or, is it just me?
