Yesterday was the birthday of my firstborn. The child that made me a mother. Sean came into this world with a bang, and nothing has changed about the way he approaches life. At 16 years old he has more drive and compassion than many adults I know. He has a heart of gold. I love him with every ounce of my being.
For his birthday I took Sean and two of his best friends, Aurelia and Kaitlin, to The Cheesecake Factory. When it was time for dessert the waiter and staff brought his cheesecake (vanilla bean) to him on a plate with "Happy birthday to you" written on it in chocolate. It was cute.
Happy birthday to my sweet pea. You'll always be my baby boy, no matter how big you are or how old you get.
