So, where have I been?
The baking day was only one of the stressful moments, although it was lots of fun, too. Daily practice, buying clothes for everybody, paying invoices from the synagogue, the DJ, the photographer, the florist. Helping him write his speech. Invitations, RSVPs, keeping track of gifts so he can write his thank-yous next week. Family flying in from out of town, who need to be housed, fed and entertained.
All in all, lots of stuff. Celebrating a milestone like this is not trivial (or cheap).
But in the end, what it amounts to is this. Miracle Boy, who started life with so much fear and pain and hope, is now a gorgeous thirteen-year-old, eye to eye with me, smart and funny and healthy.
That is where I have been. Next week - pictures and stories!!
