Some things in life are very complex. Some things are not. I deal with complex issues every day, but the minute I pick my Bubby up from school, my life gets easier, happier, healthier again. He completes me, as weird as that sounds, and I think the feeling is mutual. Today, this little man, the kindest soul I know, turns 8.

EIGHT.

My BABY turns EIGHT today. How can this be possible?

He was born yesterday, right? You all remember it like it was yesterday too, don’t you?

He makes me laugh (constantly), he makes me cry (yes, sometimes he’s a butt too), but he completes my world and I don’t know what I’d do without him. My Bubby.

He’s my baby, he’s the forth chamber of my heart, and he’s so excited that he turns eight tomorrow. Me? I’m ready to turn back the hands of time and hold him in my arms and have him need me for absolutely everything. That will never happen again. He’s the last of the lineage, and I couldn’t be more proud of the little man he’s becoming. He’s smart, funny, independent, and amazing! Everyone loves Bubby, as they should!

Today, the kindest soul I know turns 8! Celebrate with us, wish him a happy birthday if you see him, but remember to be kind to me because my baby is growing up and I’m just not ready for this. He reminded me that in just two years, he’ll be ten.

What’s next? Ten years after that, he’ll be 20. It all happens in the blink of an eye. I know from experience. I relish every moment I have with this little man, with all of my children, and I mourn the days gone by because I’m afraid I didn’t relish each moment enough.

Don’t blink!

Happy birthday, little man, Z-bub, you are the light of my life. I love all of you just the same, swear I do, but you are my last. Can you just stay little just a little bit longer, please and thank you?
