Happy Birthday, Matt

Where did my blonde-headed baby go? (I thought grandma and grandpa would appreciate this picture.)

Why does a day sometimes feel like an eternity, but 17 years seems like a matter of months?

How on earth will I ever let you go to college next year?

What do I still need to teach you about cooking and cleaning and being resilient? (Because I can just about manage the level of cooking expected of a teenage boy.)

Who will I hover over while you're in Europe the next three weeks?

Will you miss me?

Happy birthday, Matt. No matter how old you get or how far you travel, you will always be the child that made me a mother. I love you . . .
