Today is my son’s 5th birthday.
That sentence means so many new, amazing, and frightening things for us. He starts kindergarten in a new school next week. He’s no longer a toddler, but a growing little boy with independence, imagination, and infinite amounts of energy. I love the person he is becoming. He is highly intelligent with a keen sense for other’s emotions.
Sometimes I worry he is growing up too fast. Don’t all of us mothers go through this, though?
My little guy has always loved the movie Coraline. It was originally one of the movies from my own collection. I’m a huge fan of stop-motion animation. When my son was about three years old he watched it with me around Halloween-time. He fell in love with everything about it. He still watches the movie to this day. This is one of his favorite songs from the movie. It’s appropriately titled “The Party”.
So on your special day, this one’s for you, little guy.
