Thankful Thursday – my son

I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing thankful Thursdays but today is a special day.  4 years ago today, in the midst of a snow storm, my son, my acorn-sunshine was born.  Looking at him today, I have a hard time remembering that tiny baby.

fresh from mom and getting weighed for the first time.

My son was born after over 11 years of no birth control.  We didn’t think we would have a child and was living life as fancy-free adults.  Having a child has had its delights but also its tribulations.  We are still paying on the medical bills incurred by the complications of his delivery.  I still miss my freedom and the uncomplicated life before children.

But now I have the delights of whole-hearted little boy hugs and kisses.  I have a little boy who tells me I’m pretty whenever I dress up.  I have someone who watches cartoons and animation movies movie.  (Heck for Yule this year he got me the 4 DVD set of Shrek movies.)  I have someone who likes books almost as much as I do and to who I get to read fairy tales.  His need for friends his age has helped me make friends with wonderful supportive women.  He even tries to take care of me (be careful on the ice Mom or don’t burn yourself mom).  While he does plenty of things that drive me crazy (occasionally peeing the bed, sassing, not picking up his toys or not eating his dinner), he also does things like attempting to sing to me (like this morning) the song I re-arranged that I sing/sung to him whenever he’s upset.

You are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skies are blue/grey/etc.
don’t you know son
how much I love you
[insert name] Daddy/Grammy/etc.  Loves you too.

He asks me to come to his school “parties” or to attend field trips.  He tells me he loves me out of the blue.  He gives me cuddles and tries to help me with whatever I am doing.  I love my little boy and am thankful that he is part of my life.
