To you, it’s St. Patty’s Day. To us, it will forever be St. Dashel’s Day!
To my mini “Humanmangod” on his second birthday...I would like to share my favorite memory with you, that just happened a couple weeks ago. You will not remember this, but I will never forget it. We were playing together at the kiddie kitchen in Toddler Town, when you saw a little girl who was crying uncontrollably. Her mother scooped her up, but the soft swaying didn’t help. You didn’t know why she was crying, but you wanted to cheer her up. Without blinking, you searched the kitchen until you found the most beautiful pink teapot, walked over to the girl whom you’d never met, and handed it to her. She stopped crying and smiled at you.
No one taught you to do this. It is just who you already are. A kind kid, who will grow up to be a kind man. It is inside you. I am beyond gifted to be your mother...and that is the only gift I will ever need. Happy birthday my sweet boy.
