Happy 17th Birthday to Tyler

Today is Tyler's 17th birthday...he's my oldest. Yep, he's the one who taught me who how to be a mom. He taught me how to wipe a sticky face with no napkins, how to calm a colicky baby, how to stick my hand in the toilet and retrieve lost items, how to worry all night when the fever wouldn't break, how to hold a child when stitches were stitched, how to make sure the Tooth Fairy arrived in a timely fashion, how to sing all the Barney songs and most importantly how to love unconditionally. Through it all, I think he did a pretty good job raising this mom, and I think he's turning into a fine young man. I'm very proud to be his mom. I love you TyBug!
