Ten years ago today, Rob and I met William Clark for the very first time, and at that instant, everything we thought we knew about parenting and babies went right out the window. William is pretty much the opposite of normal, whatever that may be, and that is what makes him so special. He has kept us on toes every second of his life, and I have a feeling that he will continue do so for the rest of our lives. He is unpredictable and stubborn as heck. His hobbies including pushing buttons and breaking all the rules. He also enjoys turning my hair gray. And I love him to the moon and back. Thank you, William, for being… you. Happy 10th Birthday!!!
