To My Son On His 15th Birthday


Today is your 15th birthday, and I’m very proud of the young man you’re becoming, but it doesn’t make me miss the little boy any less.

I miss your questions and your belief that I still had things to tell you, because it’s been replaced by you thinking you know it all and you have nothing left to learn from me, or the world.

I miss your smiles and your genuine joy at seeing me when I’d been away for short periods of time, because it’s been replaced by your seemingly nonchalant demeanor about us now being separated by miles.

I miss your little hand in mine and your excitement and readiness to go anywhere with me, as everything was always an adventure, because it’s been replaced by your attitude that nothing is ever much fun and you’d rather sit home and play video games or read.

I miss your snuggles and hugs and little boy smooches, because even now when you hug me you never squeeze me as tight as you did when you were little and uninhibited about showing affection.

But most of all, today I miss you because you’re halfway across the country and I can’t run into your room this morning yelling Happy Birthday and telling you once again about the day you were born and how it was the best day of my life.

Just so you know, I’ll always see that little boy every time I look in your face, even when you’re 40.

I love you!!!

  1. Awe, momma. Do something fun for yourself on his birthday to occupy your mind. Maybe get tanked on some Bud Light Lime.

    Hi FBG! Sounds like a normal 15 year old… You’re just willing to put it in print! In a few years, he will be disabused of all these things and appreciate you all the more. Being a mom is hard because kids are so dumb. Fortunately, for dumb kids, mothers are all-forgiving… Of course, kids don’t appreciate this either. I agree with donofalltrades… Have a fun day today and email the photos, with a thank you note, to your son!
    Kids + bad attitudes = normal

  3. It isn’t easy, but later you will have fond reollections of these years also.

  4. Aw feck what a strange day, celebrating such a special day without the guest of honour? I hope you do plan something for yourself as I’m sure it’s not an easy day.

    15 is not the easiest age for him or you, but experience has shown me that the wheel turns and if you can hang in there he does come back to you and discovers you have things he wants to hear, questions he wants answers to and most of all that he is pleased to be with you.

    Happy birthday to your son and momiversary to you. x
