Four Years of Aiden

Someone very special to me turns four-years-old today. Wow! Time surely does fly when you're having fun!

{1 Day of Aiden}

{1 year of Aiden}
I could write about my endless love for him... or I could write about the tough part of being a single mom and how I attempt to make it work... or I could write about all the hugs and kisses that I give Aiden.

{2 years of Aiden}
But that wouldn't be enough. Somehow, it just doesn't suffice. As eloquent as I like to think that I am, with each sentence that I write, my love grows that much more. Then, I realize that the previous sentences just aren't doing justice for the kid who is such an amazing critical thinker, super persistent, and stands up for what he believes in that I swear he is going to be an Entrepreneur or a CEO or Founder of a very successful company one day.

Mark my words.

So to my dearest, exceedingly rambunctious Aiden, who [still] loves to drink his milk out of his sippy cup while holding my hand, and pronounces "animals" as "ah-mi-nals" and "Popsicle" as "pot-skittle," this one's for you. You're the joy of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way.

"To Zion," Lauryn Hill (The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill circa 1998)
