Happy Birthday, Bones

School let out today so it’s been a bit insane. I’ve been trying to get things squared away with the school budget, work, be there for my kids and… today is Bones’ Birthday.

He is 9.

He has told everyone, this has been his best birthday ever. He says he ‘got everything he asked for’ and this coincides with this being the best year he’s ever had. He’ll recite everything we’ve done so far and all that is coming.

He does this every year.

I told my husband tonight, the best part of having an ADHD child is the enthusiasm. There is a zest for life… the perpetual motion and energy, the energy for us is mostly positive. As exhausting as he is, his full embrace of life is heart warming. He is the child that wakes to every morning, excited at its prospect.

When I first started blogging four years ago (my blogiversary was last week) he had just finished pre-K4 and we were looking forward to Kindergarten. Now he is going into fourth grade, has asked to go to golf camp this summer (he is), got a new bike so he can take off around the neighborhood when he wants, and is trying so hard in school.

He wants to succeed. He truly WANTS to do well.

He is the child that stresses my heart with worry, but he is also the child that makes my heart grow three sizes in a day.

Happy Birthday, Bones.

Should all the children be so blessed to be as loved as you are… for if they were, I suspect the problems of this world would be so very different…

What a precious young man...a very happy belated birthday to him, and a happy belated blogiversary to you.

PS: The whole Christmas on the beach in shorts and a T-shirt thing is too bizarre for me to comprehend. And now it's 100+ in the shade where you're at?

Oy x 1,000.
