Devin’s birthday is quickly approaching. It’s on Wednesday. I have successfully avoided thinking about it until March. Every year we invite some of Den’s family over for dinner, if not on Devin’s birthday on the weekend before/after. I have yet to actually mention anything. I could say I’m distracted with the girls and other things, but in reality I just have let my mind slide around the whole topic instead of sitting down with it.
It’s been 5 years. He’s be starting kindergarten this year. 5 years feels like a long time… he has two little sisters now. I realized that I don’t really talk to Kate about Devin at all, I keep thinking she’s too young to understand. She knows the picture is Devin, but that’s about it.
His stone should have been placed finally. Maybe I should take a drive.
