Self portrait by Miles, age 7

Seven is… Pokémon and comic books.

… first grade and missing teeth.

… best friends and “worst favorite” foods.

… shaggy hair and skinny arms.

… teddy bears and video games.

… drawing comics and reading books.

… knock-knock jokes and potty humor.

… buffalo wings and mint chocolate chip ice cream.

… fighting some and laughing more with your little brother.

… Mom’s baby and Dad’s buddy.

… smart. Sensitive. Persuasive. Creative. Goofy. Loving. Mine.

boy with sparklerHappy Birthday, Miles! You light up my life. I love you more than any 7-year-old in the whole wide world.

Love, Mom

LAUGH O’ THE DAY: For his class yearbook, Miles had to fill out a questionnaire about himself. Asked what makes him unique, he wrote, “I can read minds.”

“Oh, yeah?” I asked him. “Then what am I thinking right now?”

“Mo-o-om. That’s not how it works.” Oh.

God I miss being 7. I mean, most of the stuff on your list I do now but it was so much more accepted when I was 7 than it is now.

I knew you’d be able to relate to the comic book part. 🙂 I really hope he never outgrows some of these qualities and interests.

So, how DOES it work?

I love that photo of Miles holding the sparkler. Makes me melt a little.
