"I didn't want Zion's last memory of me as a nine-year-old to be a bad one," he told me. Of course not.
Then he was back in his bed and I was tucking him in. I admit my eyes misted over. I looked at my firstborn child and said, "I can't believe you're ten! I've so enjoyed being your mom."
He looked at me puzzled and said, "I'm still going to need a mom." Of course he will.
The next morning, he awoke to a decorated dining room. Daniel and his streamer creations! Presents were opened (each and every one of them a Lego Mixel set) and Fruit Loops were eaten.
