5️⃣ F I V E 5️⃣ 😭😍 Happy Birthday to the best part of my life! I’ve been dreading this birthday since the 1st birthday and for good reason because it’s just so freaking hard - I just don’t know if I can adequately describe the love and pride I have for this boy. I’m just as obsessed with him as I was the day I laid eyes on him. To know Theo is pure joy and to love him makes your heart explode. He’s a comedian, a competitor, a giver and a pleaser - he loves hard and is fiercely loyal in return. Five years in and the biggest lesson I’ve learned is to tone down the expectations of what I THOUGHT motherhood was “supposed to look like” and to just try to be in the moment and enjoy my child - my first. My only. And most likely my last. Time is so fleeting and can be so cruel - I just want to savor the now - the mom I am and the child that he is. Truly, my only real parenting goal I have ever had so far is to make sure he that he is a kind person (everything else has been a bonus) - and I think that’s the greatest compliment you can give someone is to tell them that they are raising a kind human being.
Thank you everyone for giving #TCB so much birthday love today. I’ve done really well at holding back the tears (due to nonstop activities) but I have a feeling they will pop up when I least expect it. Can’t wait to celebrate this birthday boy with his friends on Sunday! 💙#tcbturns5
