  1. Dang it, I was reading this when I started a business meeting! I had tears in my voice when I started the meeting! Beautiful tribute to your son!

  2. Happy birthday to your son! Next year is DOUBLE DIGITS! You don’t change digits again until you turn 100! We take our kids on the vacation of their choice for their double digit. It is extreme, but it is something I planned to do for my kids when I was a kid myself! I read in a book about a lady who named her children after cities (Dallas, Madison, etc) and for their double digit they got to visit their city. How cool is that?

  3. Happy Birthday to your son! It goes by so quickly. I was just at “transiting to high school” meeting last night at my oldest sons school. He starts HS next year! I can’t believe how quickly it goes by.

  4. What a fun post. My boys are turning 9 in January too. It is such a fun sweet age. I tell everyone that they are in the sweet spot of parenting. They will still hold my hand and give me a hug but aren’t as needy as a toddler. It is the best!

  5. Such a heartfelt post. This is one of my favorite lines: “I wish for more cuts, bumps, and bruises…Because that means you explored.” Those are the words of a genuinely great mom. ♥
