The Terrible Twos Begin

Today my son, X, celebrates his second birthday. I’ve pondered many things to write about this occasion, but I think I said it best on my Father’s Day post:

In the past [two] years, my son, X, has developed into a rascal who keeps me on my toes. However, he knows that he only has to say “Dada” in his cute, little baby voice and everything is right in my world.

Unfortunately, I am in Poland now and cannot celebrate with him (last year, I was in Iraq for my son, N’s, birthday). However, I would like to wish X a happy birthday and tell him, “Daddy loves you.”
