Hayden’s 18! (short version)

Hayden was welcomed into the world by these three amazing grandparents and one waiting for him in eternity.
 
It just so happens that Hayden enters adulthood with Grammy here in Germany with him. Nana and Papa have a trip on the books so we’ll celebrate all the things with them, later.
 
For now, I just want to say that raising this young man has been everything I ever dreamed of. I have wanted to be a mom since I knew what a mom was (I had a pretty darn good example). He made mommy-ing look easy, made it a joy, and is truly one of my favorite people on the entire planet.
 
Hayden, may your day be special, even though we’re kinda-sorta celebrating next week instead of today.
 
Remember no matter if you’re 8 days, 8 years, 18, 38, or 68, I’ll always be your mama and you’ll always be my baby. No matter what you do, I’ll love you. You can’t earn it and you can’t lose it. It’s just THERE. (But still, no face tats, k?)

The most current photo I have of you… it’s like 90% of the other photos I have of you… with Anna. 🙂 And that’s just another thing I love about you… your love for your sister (and brothers, but in a totally different way!).

About Jennifer

"Yes, they're all mine." The answer to the question I hear most often.
