Mom: I have to give you a bath! Remember, I was supposed to give you one yesterday and you didn’t want to and I got in trouble with your daddy. He yelled at me.

Happy birthday, buddy. You are one special, amazing, incredible boy and watching you grow up in just four short years has been a privilege and the best time of my life. I can’t wait to see what this year brings you.
