How on earth did I get old enough to have a 16 year old in the house??!! Yup, my first born is 16 today. So crazy.
In some ways, it all seems like it's gone by SO fast....
And in other ways, like when you think of all we've done and all we've accomplished (and all he's done and all he's accomplished) it feels like forever.
Happy 16th Birthday, Alex. You are an awesome young man... kind, caring, funny, smart, musical... and of course, loving. I am proud to be your Mom.
We did the birthday celebrating last night as Matthew is testing for his red belt in Taekwon Do tonight and it starts at 6pm. Alex chose to go to The Keg and we had an uncle, grampa and a couple of family friends join us for a very delicious dinner.
Anyway.... on to the card....
