Twelve years ago today, something happened that changed my life forever. Although I have a tendency to over-share with other moms about what went on that long day and night in Seattle so many years ago, today is not about me. It’s about him. A healthy boy with wide, blue eyes and a big smile. My first born. He’s not so little anymore. But he’s a great kid. A true tween with a quick sense of humor. I’m so proud to be his mom. Happy birthday, C! I can’t believe you’re 12!
