Little Boys are Treasures!

Little boys are treasures

Who are worth their weight in gold.

And charm everyone around them

From the time they're minutes old.

They're Mommy's little darling,

They're a special pal to Dad,

And they bring the very happiest days

A family's ever had.

Last week, Caleb celebrated his 5th birthday.  It was so fun to watch his excitement as he counted down the days to his birthday.  His eyes sparkled as we discussed his birthday menu, his cake, presents, and other plans.  Every day I would ask him if he would turn 3 again because I wasn't ready for him to be five.  Of course, getting younger rather than older just didn't impress him. 

Caleb enjoyed getting spoiled on his birthday.  Every time our Skype phone would ring Caleb would yell "birthday call for me".  The phone calls, e-cards, e-mails, and snail mail all made him feel extra special.  

Blue jeans and trucks,
Scrapes on his knees,
Running in the dirt,
Being a tease,
Making a face,
Build and destroy,
There is nothing like
Just being a BOY!

100% BOY!

Being Caleb's mom
                             puts a smile on my face,
                                                                brings joy and laughter to my days,
                                                                                                            and fills my heart with love.

  1. What a "Happy, Happy Birthday" you had. I can tell by all the big smiles. Your cake looks so yummy, and all your presents look just right for a boy who is "100% boy" By the way, that's the best kind of boy to be - I'm glad that's what our Caleb is.
    Lots of hugs and kisses,
    Grandpa and Grandma


An encouraging word is always welcome and much appreciated!
