Nine Years Old

Nine years ago, I gave birth to my first son. I still remember the night we knew it was time and headed to the hospital. I never had been so scared in my life. He made me a mom, and it’s been quite the adventure.

Time flies! And here we are, nine years later. This pandemic the world is going through right now has made things more difficult to have a party, and spend this day with family and friends. But, he understood. He spent a lot of the day playing with his friends virtually on his iPad playing games.

We had pizza and ice cream cake, and watched the movie Sonic the Hedgehog together. And now, he’s watching the new Trolls movie.

I asked him, “are you happy?” And he said, “yes.” He later thanked me for giving him all of the things he got for his birthday.
