Happy Fifth Birthday Nikos
Next year he's off to school. Here's my prediction for February 2011: I will simultaneously grab the extra hours with a loud huzzah, and lament his absence with a silent dirge. Hello ambivalence, my old friend.
Nikos can't know how much he's given to Ruth and me. How our characters have been enriched and enlarged by his squirmy, chatty, buildy becoming. No, this'll have to wait until he's a dad himself. ('Fingers crossed,' says the potential, premature grandparent in me.)
So for now, I'll simply say happy birthday my boy, and thank you.
And tidy up your Lego.
