Each year, I do a Jack birthday post on his birthday. Last year, we celebrated double-digits with a trip to Universal Studios. The year before, we had a quiet pandemic birthday at home. Every year, I include a photo of my rapidly growing boy and I can’t believe how the time flies.
This year is no exception. Since the start of 5th grade, it seems that my baby has morphed into a pre-teen overnight. He’s so freaking smart and funny and caring. An amazing travel buddy and dang cute too. I’m so proud to be his mom.
Over the years, I’ve started asking him for permission to post his photo on social media. Sometimes he says yes. Other times he only allows a photo to go to our family text chat. I’ve also started to cut back on what I post here – focusing more on our family adventures and less on his growing stages.
With his permission, here’s my amazing 11-year-old:
He loves video games, Pusheen cats, his family, his friends, traveling to new places and being lazy on the couch in his robe. When he grows up, he says he wants to be a part time drummer and a part time tech programmer. He also says he never wants to move out of our house and that I’m forever Valentine.
Happiest of birthdays to my Jack!
