Happy Birthday Kaleb

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KALEB!

My son Kaleb Andrew was born Sixteen years ago today! He was and is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am so blessed that God chose me to be his mother. He has been the BEST son I could possibly ask for and I mean that in every sense of the word.

As a single parent putting myself through school while Kaleb was young, I can honestly say that he made it very easy. He never gave me any problems and anyone and everyone that has ever met him, loves him dearly. He is loving, caring and has a huge heart! He was raised with many loving people surrounding him. My mom, who helped so much especially when I was in nursing school, his Dad, who lives out of state but has always been there for him and our friends who we consider family, Mama Sandy and Papa Randy!!! I would like to think that we have all played a part in molding and shaping Kaleb into the wonderful person that he is today!

Kaleb has always had an infectious spirit. He loves to make you laugh and unfortunately that translates into being a class clown! He has been a wonderful student thus far and is always on the Honor Roll. Of course he has been in trouble for talking here and there, oh and there was the time that he and another girl were caught kissing on the playground when he was in Kindergarten! His teacher referred to him as the class "Romeo". But other than that, our KK (his nickname since he was a baby) has been a stellar individual!

He has had some wonderful opportunities in his life, he has been to Disney a hand full of times, traveled to places like Hawaii, Chicago, California, New York to name a few. He has swam with dolphins, been on cruises and went snow boarding in Colorado. He was fortunate enough to go to the Michael Jordan basketball camp in Santa Barbara, CA and then to the New York Nicks camp in NY. The best part is, he is always thankful for everything and never takes anything for granted. He rarely asks for anything and has a very laid back and mellow personality.

For his birthday, we met family and friends in Naples Florida for the weekend. We had a great time and basically celebrated his birthday EVERY DAY!! We were able to leave the little ones at home so we could spend quality time with Kaleb! It was an awesome time! I will write more about our trip later!

WOW!!! You made me cry! I can't believe he's 16 now. It seems like yesterday when he was my 5 year old little tag along that first summer! I feel so blessed to have had him in my life. I loved him like he was my own. Thank you for sharing him with me and my family. We love you ALL very much!
