As much as I have enjoyed the ages of 1, 2 and 3, I cannot even imagine how much cool Year 4 will be. He is so much fun to hang out with and I love hearing his observations as we navigate our world. To watch my squawking, hairy little bundle of boy grow and take on all of these life roles is amazing. He's my son, but he is also a thoughtful brother, a curious student, and an affectionate grandson, cousin and friend.
My goofy, inquisitive little boy. All the parenting books prepare you for the Why Questions, they fail to warn you about the How Question........ How do lightbulbs work? How do our bones work? How can a bird fly?
Being this boy's mother is an incredible privilege, an amazing responsibility. I am humbled thinking of all that lies before me. But I also am grateful for what I have been dealt. I wanted a child for so very long and he is simply far more than I could have ever dreamed.
Happy birthday, Arun.
