Four Times Around the Sun

June 17, 2013


Today O is four years old.

Four feels like such a big number.  In a couple of weeks he’ll be starting a day camp at the Montessori school he’ll attend part time in the Fall.  Up to this point, I can count on one hand the number of people we’ve ever left him with.  Only once has he ever been in a car driven by anyone other than B or I.  Yes, this is big.  But it’s also good.  He’s growing and thriving and no longer wants to hold my hand when we walk to the playground.  Yesterday, B and I watched as he pedaled a new bike up and down the driveway without our help.  It was wonderful to see his confidence grow, to know he feels capable.

Like so much of parenting, it’s bittersweet but here we are.  My first baby, the one that made me a mama, is four.

Happy Birthday, O.  We love you so very much!
