double digits

TEN YEARS ago today, our eldest son was born.  Hard to believe he is now in the double digits.  Tim reminded me that Briggs will only be with us for eight more years (we will see about that), and it made me heart leap. 

Briggs has always been my little buddy.  For years, he had no siblings and we did everything together.  Our adventures were limitless with only one child to cart around.   Soon enough though we had a clan to consider.  

I will never forget the things I asked out of Briggs when Tim was deployed.  Essentially, he became my second set of hands.  He was forced to mature quickly.  And, I would not have made it without him.

In the next few days, I will sit down to write my annual letter to my little buddy. 

Happy Tenth Birthday, Briggs!
