Dear Dylan ,
Today, you are five.
I love you.
I love you a thousand times, and then a thousand times over again.
We butt heads, sometimes.
We blow up at each other, sometimes.
It always comes back to I love you,I will always whisper into your ears in the night, kiss onto your eyelids when you are asleep ,Hold you tight when you have a bad dream.
All because I love you son.
You spend hours playing, asking me how to spell words . You are so very bright, so attentive, so independent and yet so loving.
We’ve had a difficult years, but we have made it to where we are.
sometime it feels like an impossibly big job , this task of raising you up into the man that you will become. I’m not sure if I’m good enough or big enough or enough enough, but son I try.I may never be enough but I will always try.
I have done my best to surround you with stability and happiness and love.
Today, on your fifth birthday, I want you to know that I’m proud of you.
I love you, and I and will always love you and I wish you the happiest day.
I wish you the happiest future, and I will do my best to make it for you.
It is a joy to be your mother.
Have the happiest day.
