i remember vividly how i was blessed with the cutest, most adorable and handsome little boy. carrying for nine months was not easy. i was sickly and mostly annoyed by the changes in me. when he finally came out, all the hardships and pain became a distant memory. he was so perfect–all 9.5 lbs of him. that was years ago.
today, kobe celebrates his ninth birthday and i am still awed by him. he has grown to be a good boy. always mindful of others, responsible, and caring. recently, kobe has become quite helpful in the house. i never tells him to, but he does volunteer for small chores (so is little sis, julia). so far, i have no problems in school with him. constantly on the honor’s list and is proving to be quite an athlete. what more could a parent ask for?
if i have all the money in the world, i would give him every toy his heart desires. but for now, it will have to be one gift from me and other one from his dad. there is nothing more i wish for him except for him to continue to be the good boy that he is and that he stay healthy.
happy birthday, son.
