I'll miss your childhood: your overwhelming desire to please, your unparalleled knack for melting my heart, your desire to have me lie down next to you as you drifted off to sleep, your inquisitiveness of the universe around you, and your fierce and powerful love and loyalty.
You are such a good, good boy. And I love you beyond my own wildest expectations. Welcome to the teen years, honey. Be kind to your old mom.
