My Dear Beautiful Boy,
It has been a decade since the day you snuggled up beside my heart and captivated it with your brilliant baby beauty. Over these past ten years, it has been a joy to see your perfect little face mature, your infectious laugh has been music to my ears and your increasingly witty personality has been a welcome treat.
In you, your family and friends have found an irresistible friendly and vibrant energy . You are equal parts funny and focused; playful and calm.
You’re the peanut butter to my jelly and it has been – and will continue to be – my honor to be your mother.
I’m as big a celebrity watcher as most people are and am quite fond of the statements they release when some huge event — such as marriage, divorce, pregnancy, sex change — occurs in their lives. Gwyneth Paltrow announcing the end of her 10 year marriage to Chris Martin via her blog reminded me

My Dearest Baby Boy,
We’ve known each other for well over nine years now and I am so proud of the little man that stands before me each day. Age 9 is a fantastic age.
I thought for your 9th birthday, I’d list a few fun facts about the number 9:

This has been the theme of my life as of late …
Filled with 2 parts sadness, 1 part feigned happiness …

My Dearest Baby Boy,

It has been:
8 wonderful years of loving you to pieces …
8 years of kissing your face …
8 years of mending your boo-boo’s … (including the invisible ones) …
8 years of in-depth

This evening, my little boy had something to do with making someone’s night very… serendipitous … in every sense of the word.
I left work at roughly 6:20pm this evening and ventured toward Park Avenue to collect my boy from his father …
I work on the West side — making the undesirable

My Dearest, Baby Boy:
Seven whole years have passed since Dr. Martas sliced Mommy open with a scalpel … and yanked you out.
At this time, 7 years ago, I was laying up in a hospital bed, numb from the waste down and waiting for the next steps …
It was a happy and

I’ve been chasing sleep for hours! …
What the fuck is so interesting about staying awake past midnight, anyway?
Milk won’t help … it’ll just give me a tummy ache.
I’m 33 y/o … why am I still saying tummy –
… something just caught my eye …
… a shadowy figure

I sit here.
With random thoughts.
About how to get to sleep.
Not any of them really good ones.
I can go downstairs. Go for a run?
But then I remember that I’m as lazy as I am an insomniac.
I can go on Twitter and Facebook. Work on being even more of a
