Baby No More
This kid is at a sleepover tonight. He's about to turn 7 in a couple more months. He's smart as a whip. He reads chapter books with no pictures. He rushes through his math homework. He still sleeps with the same three blankets we swaddled him with when he was but a babe in arms. He is vigilant about tooth brushing, making sure he's fed his fish Firewater, and playing the Wii. He follows the rules to a T, unless he's at home and then he turns into a completely different kid (sigh). I know he's being good on his overnight playdate. I know he's being polite. I also know he's being shy. And maybe a little bit unsure of things. And maybe missing us, just a touch. He's having THE best time with his friend Andrew. I also know tomorrow when he comes home he's likely to have a meltdown because he's tired and overstimulated. But most of all I know I love him to the moon and back. He's the baby we wanted so desperately 8 years ago this time. He's one of the three greatest loves of my life. He's one of two human beings that I loved at first sight. He means everything to me. He's my Jackson James.
