Happy 11th Birthday Erick!

For the past 11 years I have been blessed to be the mother of an amazing guy. He is funny, mild mannered, loving, smart, quick witted and the child I prayed very hard for.

I have been a Mommy for 11 years!!!

There are thousands of amazing books, millions of websites and articles dedicated to parenting but when the nurse places  your new born baby into your arms they come without instructions. No matter how much you try to prepare for parenthood it really is trial and error.

For the past 11 years I have been blessed to be the mother of an amazing guy. He is funny, mild mannered, loving, smart, quick witted and the child I prayed very hard for.

He is a gamer (although not better than his little brother), plays the trumpet, loves chocolate, Captain Underpants books, Fan boy and Chum Chum, Sonic, Mario Brothers, Sonjay and Craig and secretly Jessie on Disney channel (he watches with his sister). He STILL loves Thomas the Tank Engine and finds the weirdest things on YouTube that involves random songs that get suck in my head like this one  https://youtu.be/BX2Xurh1mVc (you’re welcome). Finally he is admittedly a mama’s boy… yeah we have that kinda bond.

I pray that I will not cripple him with my love and make him no good for his wife. I don’t want him to be a mama’s boy in the sense that he can’t make any life decisions without my in put. I don’t want him to be the mama’s boy that stays at home with me until he’s 30 (his father will NOT let that happen). I do want him to be the mama’s boy who sees the sacrifices that are made on his behalf on a daily bases and when he sees that the garbage needs to be taken out he’ll do it. When he sees that his brother or sister needs help he’ll help them because he knows it will make his mom’s heart glad.

I love my big boy and wish him many many happy birthday’s!

OK so I wrote the below when he was 3 years old (on Myspace) I said I would stop sharing it when he turned 10, but I’m not ready yet. I still want all the things for him today, that I wrote when he was 3.

My big boy… Current mood: thoughtful

He used to be so small.
Needed me to carry, feed, dress and change him. But a transformation happened. There was a time when he couldn’t speak for himself now he can. He couldn’t say he wanted milk or to play or even that he wanted to cuddle but now, now he tells me when he’s thirsty and says exactly what he wants. The other day he actually poured himself a cup of orange juice. I don’t know if I’m supposed to be happy that my baby is now a boy or if I’m allowed to be sad just for a little while, because my baby is now a BOY!
He doesn’t have that powder fresh baby smell anymore but instead smells like a little man full of testosterone. Soon he’ll be off to school (pre-k but school just the same) and not want to hug, kiss or cuddle with me. What then will I do?
He’s growing into a well spoken articulate little person with personality for days. He has his own beautiful mind. He’s three and has a favorite number, it’s the number 1 and he hasn’t changed his mind about it in two weeks. Next he’ll have a favorite color then a favorite class and eventually I won’t be his favorite girl!

mommy and erickOh my, my little baby isn’t a baby anymore! The child that I prayed for, begged God for is a walking, talking, singing, healthy beautiful little boy and man do I love him. Noggin all day and all, he is my inspiration.

He carries my heart with him and doesn’t even know it or care for that matter. He will always be my baby my 1 gift from God. A blessing from my womb that was promised to me. He will be a powerful human being he will bring light and love into this world. He will live a life full of joy and accomplishment and most importantly he will be a man after God’s own heart. He will love the people of God unconditionally, he will empower those who are powerless, and he will develop ideas for his generation that will change lives. Not because I say so but because it is the will of God for his life. He will live a life fully committed and dedicated to God. He will be a servant and he’ll be used of God as an honest upright man come what may!
He will be Erick Jeremiah Brown; Doctor, Teacher, Preacher, Lawyer, Musician, Master Builder, Train Operator etc…. whatever he wants to be he’ll be and he’ll be it to the glory and honor of God.
My baby is a boy who will grow into a beautiful man, just like his Dad!
