I have a four year old.
The brightest, shiniest thing that has happened recently, has been my son’s fourth birthday! I swear I can still smell that familiar yet fading scent of newborn baby when I pull him in close for a hug.
He had a laid back birthday celebration this year. A class party that I made cupcakes for, a new bike from Curtis and I and an afternoon of playing with Mia and his cousins before a visit to Curtis’ parents.
Calvin has grown so much this past year, both physically and intellectually. He has a keen interest in the universe as a whole, from the planets of the solar system, to questioning the creation and exploration of the tiniest pill bug here on earth. He loves to ask questions, and to give answers he has learnt from exploring and reading. He has a smashing sense of humor, with his favorite joke being “What kind of dog has no tail? A hot dog!”. And he brightens the gloomiest of days with his love and compassion.
