Today is officially Monkey’s 5th birthday. I cannot believe where I was 5 years ago and what was going through my mind overnight and into the wee hours of the morning. I am still amazed at how quickly, yet slowly, this time has gone. He’s grown into an amazingly hilarious little man who’ll always be my baby guy.
Monkey has found my new gluten-free status to be interesting. We talk often about it. We discuss what might or might not have gluten in it, and he jabs at me with jokes on the regular about what I can and cannot eat. “Mommy, you can have this chocolate piece here, but not this cupcake, okay?”
