My Little Boy Isn’t So Little Anymore

 I, too, will explore the far reaches of the sky with you, Daniel.  You may not hear thousands of feverish Parisians rooting for your success; but a mother’s internal cheerleading voice could be just as fiercely powerful.  Even more so. 

The preceding is an excerpt from the essay I penned partly to celebrate Daniel’s seventh birthday last year:

This year, too, I’d had every intent to present my now eight (!)-year-old boy with another gift of writing, but failed to do so.  (I’m sorry, Daniel.)   We took a trip over his birthday weekend.  As always, Daniel and his sister had a blast in the hotel’s swimming pool.
