He’s 14 on the 14th, y’all !
Parenting is full of witnessing our children as they BECOME...
and this witnessing... it is loss and gain simultaneously... it fills up
and it fractures your Mama heart all at once ... He’s the one who made me a mother, my favorite and most cherished job title.
Who taught me to trust my innate mama wisdom and fierce mama heart, who helped me grow up in so many ways.
I hope all parents get to enjoy their teenagers as much as I enjoy this fun friend of mine! (Just do it! ...Less control. More connection ! Less fear more fun!) He’s smart and hilarious with an insanely generous heart.
He’s always giving ... treating me to coffee and his little brothers to snacks...
One of the reasons he is so excited to turn 14 is so he can get a job and be able to give more to more people. “I can’t wait til I can invite friends out to dinner and then pick up the tab all the time”
is something he has said on more than one occasion.
He’s ALL about people.
He’s happiest in community and connection...He LOVES his friends deeply, loyally, generously.
It fills his tank to love his people well.
He has so much forward thinking drive and vision to create and carve out a life he loves, full of abundance, creativity, laughter and so much music.
I’m just so psyched and honored I get to be along for this ride, witnessing this autonomous being doing his thing.
And I’m truly grateful he lets me link arms with him and be his number one fan, advocate, and friend.
Happiest of birthdays my amazing love.
Don’t shrink for people.
Your soul is an ocean.
