I can’t believe you are 5 years old. You came into the world in a flash, just you and I together, and it feels like we haven’t slowed down since. You are the sweetest soul I have ever met and I’m so lucky to call you mine. Anyone that knows you knows that they are in the presence of such a special, bright, and caring boy. You want nothing more than to make the people around you feel loved. You tell me that you try to be nice and you try to be the best — and you succeed.
Life is so beautiful with you in it.
I have fears. I fear you are too nice and forgiving and will be bullied. I fear you will be taken advantage of by girls with bad intentions. If I ever seem overbearing and selective about who you can be around, that is the reason.
Being around you is like a breath of fresh air. You are so optimistic, so joyful. You see the good in everything. You are the essence of innocence. The world needs more sweethearts like you.
I’m sure it won’t always be this way. You won’t have me as your #1 forever. Until then I am going to bask in your light that shines so bright.
My sweet baby Jack.
