On this day 13 years ago my son Patrick finally arrived. 255000000 hours of labor...ok really just 25. Still that's an impressive number in the birthing world. I remember thinking as I walked an hour every day that I was pregnant... I'm "in shape" it will be painless and quick. Ahh to be confidently clueless!
It brings a tear to my eye thinking about how much I loved this little bundle and what hopes and dreams I had for him.
He has brightened my life and continues every day to bring me love, laughter and a few headaches too! Of course he does... officially Patrick's a teenager now. He's just doing what he is supposed to now, unrelentingly testing his independence and my patience at the same time. Now for all the good times and not so good times... I just HAD to post these favorites!! Sorry!'s a mom thing!

Dear Patrick,

Birthday wishes to you my Paddy. You are an amazing young man that I am so very proud to call my son!
You are officially a TEENAGER today!!!! Wow! How old does that make me then?? (Just kidding)
My love for you is deeper than the ocean and wider than the whole world! Have a spectacular day today at DISNEYLAND!!!!!

All of my love to you.

P.S. When you asked me if I had talked about you on my blog lately I told you "no" because I was waiting for this.
