The Decade of Devin


Today was Devin's 10th Birthday!

It was an exciting day which included a visit from his two buddies from Vermont, Xan & Elliot. They arrived last night and spent the night with their Mom & one of my best friends, Josha.
They woke up this morning, complete with wild-boy-bed-heads, and ran downstairs to watch Devin open his presents, which included a Playstation 3!
Every time I looked at Devin today, I remembered ten years ago, when I became a Mother for the first time. I'll never forget touching his warm, wet head as I was pushing him out. It was a profound moment. My life had such purpose and I felt a wholeness that I had never felt before. The love I have for him is indescribable.
Life has only got better and better every day, every month and every year since that moment.
Today was not only Devin's birthday, but the Anniversary of the day I was born a Mother.
What a day to celebrate!

Happy birthday, Devin. May you have many more happy decades.

Unschooler sleepovers, how fun.

I was too chicken to touch the head.
