he's 4
and he wears "wadybug shoes." today is his birthday and a little part of my heart is breaking. i never thought i would be this kind of mother. ever since my children were born, i have celebrated their every move toward independence. but today he's four, and i want to scream - "freeze! don't get any bigger!" i love that he can get dressed and go potty by himself, but he still fits in my arms when he gets a "boo boo." i love that he plays soccer with his little friends, but he would rather be with his family than with anyone else. i love that he watches dora laughing, and he has no idea what mtv is. i love finding his little wadybug shoes by the door, knowing that too soon they will be replaced by huge stinky nikes. but, i bet i will love those huge stinky nikes too. happy birthday, little man.

Happy Birthday! My son -he is the youngest- starts high school on Thursday. I am feeling a little teary myself. Seems like he was just four and going to preschool. I don't know where the time went. Now I have stinky ASICS in my front hall!

Happy birthday to you too mom!!
My daughter is 2 & my son is almost 11 mo. I think I will be sobbing when he turns 1.
Please save the "wadybug" shoes forever.

Yea! Happy Birthday! Oh, B, as one of my friends always says "When you're a parent, the days are long but the years are short." Where does the time go?

Happy Birthday little man!!

My son started kindergarten on September 6, and turned 6 on September 10. Gosh...where did the time go? When we came home after taking him on the first day...I cried like a baby! My daughter started preschool too. It's a bit much for me to take!
