The Boy in the Middle....A letter From Your Momma

My sweet, loving, patient and kind boy.....

Today is your birthday.

Five years old. The time has passed so fast. Everyone warned me that it would happen that way so I took time to slow down and watch you grow. You have a wonderful way about you that makes me smile just at the thought of you....

My sweet. loving, patient and kind boy....

You are the second child in our family. Right in the middle. You had to learn to be patient, learn to wait your turn. You realized that you would never be the "first" to do things....but you handle it all in stride. You proudly take your victories where you find them and still, ever so patiently, wait for you turn.

My sweet, loving, patient and kind boy.....

Today you are five. Five means lots of things, this is not lost on me. Five means kindergarten, a whole day of me waiting to hear about your day. Five means new friends, new adventures....
Five means I have to let you go a little. Share you with the world.

But no matter how many years go by....
You will always be 

My sweet, loving, patient and kind boy....

And I am so very, very proud to be your momma.
Happy Birthday to you, Bryce.
