Today is my son Nicholas' 8th birthday :) at times I believe he thinks he's at least 23 years old..... Every time one of my kids has a birthday I get a little sad :( It seems like the older they get they don't need me as much... Nicholas was your classic example of a "momma's boy". He's my third child and came at a time when it was just the two of us at home so we became buddies. Everyday I see him letting go a little more and as happy as I am to watch him grow, I can't help but feel sad.
For his birthday dinner he chose pizza hut and instead of cake he wanted krispy kreme donuts... that absolutely devastated my 4 year old because for birthdays you should always have cake!!!
