To my son on his16th Birthday!

Well where do I begin?  I cannot believe my "baby" is turning 16 today.  Wasn't it just yesterday I was sitting there holding a bundle of joy in the hospital.  It seems like just yesterday you were so proud of yourself for learning how to ride a bicycle without training wheels.  Now soon you will be learning how to drive a car. 

16 years ago today
They placed you in my arms
I became a mother again for the third time

You learned to walk, to read
Each day brought something new
No more my little boy
You hurt, I cried, you grew
Sometimes you didn't need me
didn't want to hold my hand
Your independence made you proud
But me a little sad

I blinked my eyes, I turned around
your almost grown I see
Why did it go so fast?
A few more moments please

In your struggle to spread your wings
 We sometimes don't get along
But I'm always on your side
I'll always be your mom

You can't stop time, can't hold it back
Can't stop the ocean's tide
The good person that you are
Fills my heart with pride

In my eyes there is no one like you
 I can not wait to see what you'll become
My pride and joy, I love you
Happy birthday to my son!

I love this! Every year I would do a birthday blog post to my kids, but somehow I got too busy. Next year I will try to do it! I love the pics of him in his gear. :) Is he a cadet? My boys are starting to think about it being one.
