Today starts your academic career!!! I'm so proud to be your mom. You are an energetic and full of life boy. You have been a spitfire since the day you were born, and I love every inch of you.
I'm feeling a little more emotional today than I thought I would. I am remembering the day that we brought you home from the hospital, and how scared I was at the responsibility of parenting you. It makes me laugh a little today to think about you swaddled into a perfect little bundle, looking so sweet, and how I felt so scared. Now I know that the scariest parts come much later. I've relaxed into my role of being your mom, and enjoy my time with you. You are witty, curious, and ebullient! (I just like that word...but you ARE!)
Enjoy your time in school. Soak it all in and make the best of your time. I hope you continue to have a love for learning and that you will fondly look back on this time. I told you this morning "Cyrus, the world is your oyster". You asked what an oyster was....totally ruined the sentiment (but made me laugh). I love you.
