Tyler just turned six! I still can’t believe how big he’s gotten; already he weighs more than half my body mass and soon will fit into his father’s shirts. Don’t worry, he’s not overweight. We the parents, being Asian and all are simply ectomorphs, thus petite by nature.
I never would have guessed that motherhood can be so amazingly wonderful; I wouldn’t have imagined someone so little can change my whole world, nor would I ever thought something as simple and small as a smile can fill my heart so full. I am so grateful for the chance to be a mother, to my sons. They are the most precious things in life and my greatest accomplishments.
Of course motherhood isn’t all sunshine and roses, but it’s hardly comparable to the overwhelming feeling of love and joy one gets as a parent. It’s really the best job ever!!
After weeks of preparation, it was party time. Everything turned out as planned. In fact, it was better. The weather couldn’t have cooperated more for our backyard b.b.q.,it started pouring right after the party ended. We lucked out. Tyler loved the Pokémon theme, his friends didn’t seem to noticed. They were just happy to be running around like loose cannons. My son felt super special, so I’d say this birthday bash was a smashing success!
