Stephen Had a Birthday. There Was a Lot of Singing and Blowing Out of Candles. He Kind of Loves That.

Happy Birthday, Stephen!
I never know what to write on these birthday posts. I feel like they should be all touching and poignant and full of wistful nostalgia. But, I'm just not that type of writer. Hah. Even referring to myself as a writer at all sounds ridiculous. But still, I want to say something.

So, Stephen. You are an unbelievably difficult child. Like, really really hard. But my heart is bursting at the seams with love and affection for you. You nuzzle and cuddle and charm like no one's business. You can talk me into cookies for lunch and ice cream for dinner. You always steal my coffee and you love spicy foods. You like to mush my face and give me violently awesome "BIG kissies!" Pretty much you're fantastic. Like all my kids. Thanks for being you. And Happy Birthday. I'll gladly sing to you any day.

Happy Birthday, Stephen!
