Nobody Warned Me About Five

My son’s birthday is today, so I am in pause. The world feels like it’s standing still for just this second, as I jot down a few thoughts and reminiscences. I remember the day he was born: the first time I saw you, held you, and rocked you in my arms. You were so small, compared to now. But, I …

Another week gone by

Well another week has gone by, and I’ve learned more amazing things… As we begin the journey, we think it is our child that is learning  and gaining experience.
