This sweet baby ^
....is 6 years old today!!!
This little boy is my bestie best friend. I'm constantly amazed by everything he does and knows.
Over the winter months, Charlie played on a basketball team that had 8 (very veryyyyy long and boring practices) and 1 scrimmage. Seriously, those practices were the longest 45 minutes of my week. They didn't do a ton and mainly just stood around per the coaches' instructions.
When the week of his scrimmage came, I didn't think much about it, because I assumed it was just going to be another hour of kids just standing around, but I was so wrong. Charlie got into the game, grabbed the ball from the other team, dribbled down the court, and scored!!!!
I was literally in tears and so shocked because it the first time I had seen actual playing. I texted Noel (who was coming as fast as he could from class) and told him about the goal. The thing is...this same exact scene kept happening. He kept getting the ball and scoring and I was freaking out!! I kept blowing up Noel's phone, and unfortunately, by the time Noel got there, the game was done.
During his basketball practices, we got him an over the door basketball hoop on our pantry door, and he practices and plays (still does) every second he gets a chance. He works hard for what he wants and that's why everything he touches turns to absolute gold. Everything!
I could not be more proud to be his mother. My darling boy....Happy Birthday!!!
