four years ago, a precious little boy came into my life. four years ago i knew that love at first sight was real. four year ago, i held the love of my life in my arms. and this little boy looked up at me with all the trust he knew.
four years ago, my son came into this world.

i’m not really sure how i’ve managed to survive as a parent these four years. because i can’t keep a fish alive longer than a few days. being a single parent is quite frightening. it involves many tears. many moments of extreme anxiety and many many MANY times where i just want to give up.
but i can tell you this… regardless of how scary it is to raise a child in this world. regardless how hard parenting actually IS. regardless of how much they drive you insane… there is nothing greater in this world than seeing your child smile. hearing your child laugh. or simply having your four year old little boy look at you and say “awww. i love you, momma!”
four years later, i have a precious little boy that smiles all the time. that sparkles nonstop. that charms bees. and that has random strangers stopping us to tell us how “CUTE HE IS!!!”

I had his birthday party at Cheer Texas. which is, by the way, the WAY TO GO! so much fun! thank you to EVERYONE that came out!i am truly thankful to have been blessed by this little boy. he has brought so much GOOD into my life. directly and indirectly. he really is the reason behind everything that i do and i cannot imagine what i did before he came along.Party Venue – Cheer Texas
