Day 251 of Staying the Fuck Inside

Today we celebrate kiddo’s 9th birthday.

Having a global pandemic wasn’t in our original birthday plans for him, but since Primary Parenting Duty Number One is Keeping Him the Fuck Alive, we will be keeping things low key. He’s never expressed an interest in having a party beyond family (we have asked), this shouldn’t be a Thing.

So many emotions, but at the bottom of it all is that he’s the most amazing person I’ve ever known, and I would do anything for him. I love the kid like nothing else.

Hoping the world and all of us will be in considerably better shape before his 10th birthday.
