My 7 year old

Wow. 7 years old. I cant believe how big he has gotten. When and how did this happen?!?

For his birthday he asked that people bring donations for the animal shelter instead of gifts. He got $208 and tons of food, treats, cleaning supplies and toys. When he said that he wanted to ask for donations instead, I tried to talk him out of it. I was afraid that he would be disappointed on his birthday if he didn't get many gifts. He told me 'mom, pets are way more important then people and I want to help them until they find their families'. There isn't a lot I can argue there. Then today when he was opening his cards I told him how proud I was of him for being so incredible and sweet. His reply was 'mom, why are CRYING?!?' 

I am proud of my son. He is so amazing and fantastic and sweet. He has the kindest heart of any 7 year old I  know. I hope that he had a great birthday in the cold and rain. And I hope he always knows how special he is. 

I love you Zach, Happy Birthday!
