My Doodle

“There is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart.” -Washington Irving

My Doodle is 15 today. 15!!! How can that be?

My Doodle is a sweet, smart, sensitive boy. He has been since the day he was born. He was and always has been a great eater and sleeper. Such a nice change of pace from child #1. I remember thinking how lucky we were…he was so easy going. A personality trait essential for a second child.

I think back to the time in the hospital. It was so different from the first. When we had our first it was a whirlwind. Visitors came from near and far at all hours. The days were filled with a bustling yet exhausting energy. This bustling yet exhausting energy carried on in the personality of my first.

Fast forward to when I had my Doodle. It was quite the opposite. A snow storm came through. So the days and nights were filled with a calm and quiet stillness. There was only a random visitor who braved the weather. It gave us time to bond and rest.

My Doodle has always had that calm, quiet personality.

My Doodle has grown into a smart, reflective, articulate young man. He has a strong sense of right and wrong. He is SO funny. We have many anecdotes of things he has said over the years that has made us laugh (those are for another post).

My Doodle has an amazing writing gift and a command of language and vocabulary. He is a thinker. He thinks about things and becomes informed before he forms an opinion or has conversations. In that, he is so much like his dad.

My Doodle can do anything when he sets his mind to it. BTW…he has declared his for presidency in 2040! Look out for him. He will be a force to be reckoned with.

I love him with all my heart and being.

  1. I love this post for so many reasons! Your love for your son, the way you describe his personality, and the fact that yes, teenagers CAN be delightful, contrary to popular opinion. We had a few struggles when our kids were teens, but by and large, it was a joy seeing them grow into their own people. And now they are young adults…don’t blink, this time will go by fast!
