When I was growing up

. . . I seriously never thought I'd be the kind of woman who'd take to motherhood.  But I can say truthfully that the five happiest days of my life were the days my five sons were born.

Today is Alec's birthday.  He was fat and round and red, and all I could think when I first saw him was, yes.  This is exactly what I wanted.  Another boy.

What lucky boys they are.

I so agree--I was thinking today, for some reason, about how absolutely happy I was on each of my children's birthdays. Happy birthday to Alec, and happy Alec's birthday to you!
