Daddy did not place any expectations on you. He was just happy that you were healthy. Ok, well to be honest, he wanted you to be cute and smart and maybe become the black Wayne Gretzky or the first black Prime Minister of Canada or a soccer phenom. A daddy can dream… (Just kidding though, a healthy kid was all that I wished for but the sky is your limit).
Son, it’s been a pleasure watching you morph into the big boy you are today. So wise that I can converse with you about anything. I am proud of you to no end. You have exceeded my expectations and I am excited to see what your future holds. Your birthday aptly falls on Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be more thankful to God for you. We love you son and want to wish you a very happy 8th birthday.
