Today is my second oldest sons birthday.  Today we celebrated Patrick.  Birthdays are a big deal to all kids but there is something about Patrick and his day that is extra special.   He starts planning for it weeks, sometimes months in advance.  He loves the details and the extras.  Although he celebrated a couple months ago with his friends we rocked out some burgers and cake tonight with family.  He is 10, one year older.  I have to say it is always difficult for me to say good bye to another year in my kids lives.  I miss 9 already.
