When Did This Happen?

Happy Birthday Kyle!
I'm almost excited as you are to celebrate your special day but part of me wishes I could hit the pause button because you are growing up way too fast.
Are you really going to be 6?
For the love of fat bassets, how can this be possible?
Didn't I just bring you home yesterday?
It was a day that I will never forget as your mother and I got to meet our little man for the first time.
It was just one of the many amazing moments I have had with you.
Looking at you now, it's hard to believe that you are the same guy we brought home 2,192 days ago. You are a generous, sweet, inquisitive, funny, caring little dude who inspires me every day to be a better man and a better father.
On your 6th birthday, here are my wishes for you:

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final Good-bye.

I love you Kyle Bunga, and I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating 6 years of awesomeness.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. Aw. He's always been a beautiful boy and he grows evermore so.
    I can't believe he's six.
    Happy birthday to that fine young man.

  2. It's hard to believe, as I can remember when you announced that he was on the way. It's a privilege watching these kids grow up.

  3. What wonderful birthday wishes. To heck with the pause button, I'm at the point I'd like to push the rewind button. Hope you have a special celebration this weekend.

  4. Like you and everyone else, I can't believe Kyle is now six years of age. The years are flying by much too fast.
    Loved your wishes to him, Matt, it just shows what a wonderful father YOU are.
    Enjoy the celebrations and much love to Kyle.

  5. Thanks for sharing the events of your kids lives with us. I feel like I know them and, of course, wish them the best.
    Time really goes by fast when you're having fun.

  6. my favorite wish for my kids came for the great bob dylan:

    may you stay forever young.

  7. Happy birthday, little fella!
