Today my little one turns seven! I know all moms say this, but I can't believe how quickly the years have gone by. Being back in Pittsburgh where he was born and being pregnant again, I find myself thinking back a lot to how things where seven years ago. So much has changed, and it is just amazing to watch how my little boy has grown.
Just today I was touched to see how he handled a situation. He was up in his room when he came down stairs and said "Mom, please don't be mad at me", of course every mother knows something that she isn't going to be too happy about will follow those words. He told me he had accidentally broken something that I had asked him not to touch earlier. I told him that I wasn't angry, just disappointed that he disobeyed and that he would need to tell his dad when he got home. Cale said "ok mom", and went back upstairs for a few minutes. He came back down with two little pieces of paper in his hand and said "Mom I wrote these for you to say I am sorry.". The notes were simple as he is still working on his writting skills, one said MOM and the other said DAD. I thought it was very big of him to realize that he should write out an apology note without me even asking him to.
Happy birthday, I am very proud of the young man that you are growing up to be.
