The Luckiest: a letter to my son

6.06.2011

Ollie,

As your third birthday approaches, I cannot help but reflect upon my life and our life together. It is hard to believe that there was a time when I was not your mother. Having you as a son has been the most rewarding part of my life, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I know that our life is unconventional; I know that there will be people who say you have ruined my dreams. But we are proving them wrong every single day. There is not a moment that passes in which I am not grateful to love you. Without even trying, you have blessed and inspired me in countless way.

I'm not going to say this is the life I had dreamed of growing up. But the truth is, it is more than I could have asked for. During the good times and the bad times, there is only one person who I want by my side: you.

I remember when you were just a tiny baby, and I would sing you to sleep in my arms. I look at you now and wonder where the time went. Now you are turning three, and you have a personality that draws people to you. Your smile and laugh are infectious. I am so proud of the little man you have become.

The memories we have created in the past three years are some of the fondest of my life. And I look forward to a lifetime full of memories with you.

I love you. Today. Tomorrow. Forever.

Momma
