My Biggest Boy Turns 19 Today!!!!



Nineteen years ago, I gave birth to one of the most amazing human beings on the planet.  I have had the pleasure of watching this young man grow into a smart, compassionate, kind soul. I adore the person he has become. He changed my life, has made me a better person and has filled my world with so much joy.  I couldn’t be more proud to be his mother. It’s been 19 beautiful years and I can’t wait to see where his journey takes him. I love you to the so much in the whole world Evan 😉

I wrote this poem several years ago and always post it on Evan’s birthday.  This is how I will forever see my young man.



Rubber boots
Cover chubby knees
Freckles dance
On apple cheeks
Wagon full of rock and mud
Trudging through the driveway flood
Giggles explode at worms in hand
I laugh at you as on the porch I stand
Wagon pulled with dirty hands
Scooping mud into coffee cans
One last time
In the puddle you leap
Knowing mama will save you
If it’s too deep
Brown eyes twinkle
With a devilish stares
Puddle jumping in your underwear
