It is 10:30 pm and my baby boy has just come to kiss me goodnight. It is not any ordinary, boring kiss but our special goodnight kiss ritual. Several months ago he and I designed our very own good night kiss. First it's the batting of eyelashes against one another (butterfly kisses), then noses rubbing (eskimo kisses), then cheek to cheeck, then rubbing chin against chin. Not sure where it really came from but everynight for months he has faithfully come looking for his special kiss. If I am honest there are nights that I have thought not right now or how about we skip just tonight but he is relentless and it takes only about 1.5 seconds for me to melt and remember that not long from now he will no longer come looking for my kisses. So, I will cherish this time and take each special one I can get.
I am not sure how it is possible that this boy is going to be turning 12 tomorrow. I can't fathom where the years have gone. What a treasure he is and I am so thankful that God chose me to be his mom. As long as he is giving out kisses I am determined I will make the time to take them.
Happy Birthday Baby Boy!
