My son was born during the first week of September 4 years ago. Splash of Sun has entered my life revolutionizing it and teaching me every day how beautiful (re) seeing the world with the eyes of children. Why Splash of sun? Because as soon as I was born, my finger tightened strong enough to remind me of Hercules and “sprinkled” his first poop on me. Hence his nickname was born from the Disney cartoon “Hercules“.
Birthday letter to my son Splash of Sun
Dear Splash of Sun,
They say that…
We don’t put the most beautiful jewel on the finger, but in the world
So you would be my most beautiful jewel …
Yes, I believe that this is indeed the case despite the fact that I often want to scream and run away from you to take back the life of when you were not there.
That life made up of outings, carefree and having no one who totally depends on my tiny choice. Where the dawn I saw her in the car coming home from an evening and not from the window trying to make you fall asleep.
A life where the word “mom” was only for my mother. But now I AM mom, or at least I try to be.
Now I have you and you have me.
Your fourth birthday.
4 years of you, a new me and an eternal We.
Of those Us who are truly forever and sometimes even a little afraid.
You add pages to the book of your life and I wish you to always find the right words to describe your memories, to know how to use the colors of the heart to paint your days, to know how to live every emotion with enthusiasm, to live with the soul of a child and the wisdom of an adult for as long as possible.
I will always remember the time we met for the first time, after giving birth to you. If it is true that falling in love is an irrational act and totally devoid of concrete motivations, then, I believe I love you.
They also say that when you make the decision to have a child you are giving your heart permission to leave our body.
Well, I think they’re right.
Every year you will grow bigger and I will become you too. We will grow again, we will learn new things, we will fail, we will cry and we will laugh, but it will be nice to be able to do it together.
Me, you and dad.
And when you ask me in a few years where you came from I will have the answer ready for you:
Children come when a mother and dads love you so much as to close the eyes and express a desire
For this day, my son, I can only wish you to be happy and serene like all the other days that will be granted to us. I can promise you that I will do everything to make you that.
Happy birthday my Spruzzetto di Sole!
Outfit: how to dress at a children’s birthday
What to wear to celebrate your child’s birthday? I let Splash of Sun decide. In his day I made him participate in my look making them choose the leaders among three casual alternatives. In these circumstances where parents usually have to run from one side to the other, set up the location and keep several children at bay it is always better to opt for practical and comfortable outfits. I admit that for his tender age Splash of Sun already has clear ideas and all in all he has chosen for me a feminine mother’s outfit but at the same time suitable for the needs of a birthday.
H&M high waist skinny jeans, Primadonna low heel shoes, Twin-Set blouse, Ralph Lauren white bag and NAU sunglasses.
I hope the look of today chosen by my son is liked and as always, I look forward to the next outfit.
