Today is Matt's 14th birthday!
I got up this morning, just like every other morning, and Matt was at the kitchen table eating his breakfast. I said good morning and headed to my computer to check my email. I was thinking to myself that he probably thinks I have forgotten his birthday! I could never do that. I waited until he headed up to have his shower and then I made his lunch. I wrote a little note and placed it on top of his sandwich.
I heard him coming down the stairs and it was only seconds before he said to me 'mom, I thought you forgot'! I flashed him a smile and told him that I would never forget his birthday!
Tonight we will celebrate his special day with a family dinner at the restaurant of his choice. I am hoping now that he is fourteen, he will pick somewhere other than McDonald's!
Happy Birthday bud! I hope you have the best day ever.
