As I begin to wind down from one of the craziest days ever, I am able to think straight and can't help but be forever grateful for the understanding son that can put aside his birthday so mom can fulfill her duties and dreams.
Trait #1: he is understanding no matter the sacrifice
#2: he is sensitive and doesn't like to see people cry
#3: he is goofy and can make us all laugh, even when we want to knock him out to be quiet
#4: he is full of determination, though sometimes I mistake it for stubborness
#5: he is passionate about causes and always wants to help others
#6: he is golden, everything he attempts is achieved
#7: he is so very handsome - you can't disagree with me there.
#8: he is confident, but not boastful though sometimes I think he needs to toot his horn just a little bit because I think he is totally awesome
#9: he is disorganized and random, though I can't say I love this, but sometimes it causes me to just take a deep breath and say is it really worth fussing about
#10: he is loyal, if you are his friend he takes that job seriously - no doubt he will forever be there for you
#11: he cooks - Thank god because sometimes I need a break and he knows just when I do need one
#12: he has always been challenging, he has kept me on my toes as a parent from crawling out the crib at the age of 5 months to deciding he was done with school that he learned enough in the first grade. He has challenged me on every turn on this journey of parenthood, but I gladly accept them all because that means I get to be this amazing teen's mom.
#13: and lastly he is loving and loves this crazy dreamer mom no matter how many bipolar, Tourette syndrome, ADD days she has, he still turns to me and says I love you!
Happy birthday Hunter! I love you!
