Yesterday, he was born.
Today, he is 3.
Tomorrow, he will be 13, and no longer whisper to me as his eyelids get heavy in the dark of his room, “Mommy, stay. I just want to snuggle with you.”
He won’t ask, “Mommy? Are you a princess?” when he sees me try on a new dress.
He won’t exclaim, “You’re having an Idea Emergency!” when he hears me swear at the stroller that won’t fold so I can shove it back in the car.
Tomorrow he will grow up, finally get to run off with those “fwiends!”
But today, he is 3. And he’s still all mine.
