Happy 13th Birthday {2018}

I'm the mom of a teenager! J is 13 today!

Not sure how it's possible that I'm old enough to have a teenager, but I do know that I've loved 13 years of being this kid's mom!

He's quiet and confident, smart and compassionate.
He's got more self-discipline than I ever will! He decided to go without sugar for soccer season, and while I would've only lasted an hour, he's holding strong week after week! He won't even have cake for his birthday!

Soccer and reading are his favorite hobbies, and he's the best big brother for C.
The years creep by, and somehow this cute little three-year-old turned 13.
What joy to be his mom!
As his tradition, here is his year-in-review video {or click here}:
