I grew up hearing the expression “She will be his first love, and he will be her last.” This quote is about the love between a mother and a son. I never really understood the meaning of this until I had my own son. Now that I do, I know how real and pure that bond is and I understand the meaning of love in a whole new way. Today my son Baron turns 9 and it is met with both wonder and awe, but also just a bit of melancholy. Time is going by so fast and my little man is growing up to be an independent, kind and articulate human being. I guess deep down there is always that fear of not being needed or not being the number one person in his life anymore. I’m sure our relationship will go through many changes, but in the end all I know is I love being his Mama and being the one who he needs the most and turns to first. I’m sure one day soon I’ll have to share him with another, but for now I’m content just watching him grow.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARON!!!
