To Love a 14 year old is to...

Today we have a 14 year old son…OMG!!! Where did the time go??

I have been asked lately…”What does it feel like to have a 14 year old?” 
I have no idea how to answer that question because it just seems unreal that he is growing up soo fast right in front of our eyes.
But I can tell you what it feels to love one.

To Love a 14 year old is to:

Remember the day he was born like it was yesterday

Remember how proud it made your husband to have a 1st born son

Remember that he let you hold him first because he felt it was only fair

Remember how he loved his binky

Remember how his smile steals your heart each time 

Remember what an old soul he was even at such a young age

Remember that he has a heart of gold and wears it on his sleeve

Remember what a great laugh he has

Remember what a great friend he is

Remember how proud he makes you every time someone
compliments you on him

Remember he is the best big brother a kid could ever ask for

Remember how his talents are developing as he grows and how talented he really is

To love our son is to remember that he came into our lives
 14 years ago
and that we could never live without him!!


  Happy 14th Birthday Papito!!
We Love You!
