I have survived 8 years of parenting and Quintus has survived 8 years of my parenting. Good things happen all the time! ^_^
I think he had a very special day, starting with Zander carrying his birthday cupcake to him (tradition to wake up the birthday boy with a cupcake with a candle in) and ending with ice-cream & songs by the staff of the lodge where we are staying. It helps that he also got too much money, swam in the sea and had a mini birthday party with just us.
As is right and the way life should be, I learned a lot through parenting Quintus. He has also made it very easy for me. He can be very patient with my parenting style and mistakes. He sees me as the princess of the house and often tells me so.
I am very proud to be the one he calls Mom…..or Moekelaris.
Happy birthday Quinty. I hope that you have gone to sleep happy every night of your 8 years and known that you are loved by all of us.
