Happy birthday, Luke!

Happy birthday TO you!  Happy BIRTHday TO YOOOOOOUUUU!  Happy BIRTHDAY dear Lucas!  Happy birthday to YOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!

That’s right!  Today is Luke’s first birthday.  It’s also his grandma’s birthday.  Obviously it’s not her first *snicker snicker*

Exactly one year ago, I was exhausted, hungry, and scared for my freedom.  Rightfully so too: have you ever had a baby???  Wow!

Realistically, having Luke hasn’t been as enslaving as I thought it would be.  Make no mistake though.  I don’t get to do nearly as much as I used to.  Nor do I see everybody as frequently as I used to.  But having Luke around feels pretty natural.  I don’t really remember what life was like before him.  I think that it was pretty much the same.  The only difference that I can make out right now is that I didn’t have to block the cabinat doors.  Nor did I have to stop anybody from getting into the cabinets.  I think the cats used to open them, but they weren’t as obsessed with opening them and getting in there.  Plus, when I caught them, they ran with fear.

Luke isn’t like the cats though.  He’s more like a Terminator: he can’t be bargained with.  He can’t be reasoned with.  He doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear.  And he absolutely will not stop, ever…

It has definitely been a year of patience, frustration, failures, and personal triumphs.  One thing I can say with absolute certainty: it’s all been worth it.

Happy birthday little buddy.

Love,
Mom and Dad
