Happy Birthday Mica


You turned 6 today! Happy Birthday! You start Kindergarten next week! I'm both nervous and excited for you. I can't believe how time flies!

I ran into your name a few times. One night I fell asleep on the couch and woke up to this on the TV:
Found here
Turns out there's a famous ski resort in Heli Canada named Mica. Kind of odd to wake up with that on the TV!

Then I was thumbing through a graphic design book and saw this:

Found here
It stands for Maryland Institute College of Art. Perfect! I do think it's odd that Institute and College are in the same name of a school. It's still cool that M | I | C / A is an art school!

You were actually named after this:

Found here
That shimmery stuff on a rock is called, "Mica." This type of Mica is sometimes added to paint. You took a rock to preschool last school year to show your friends "Mica."

I call you "Mica Moose" a lot. I'm not sure if you truly believe me, but I told you a story about how you were going to grow moose horns out of your head. For awhile I told you that you had to take a bath, so your moose horns would grow. You told a few family members about your horns. You might have believed me.

Your moose horns may not be growing, but the rest of you is growing like a weed! I swear you will be one of the tallest boys in your class.

You have proved doctors wrong in many areas. You were born with a cyst under your tongue. Doctors said you may never eat or talk right. They sent us to countless doctor appointments, to get an MRI done and to speech therapy. You eat a lot and talk our ears off! You had a funky crawl and limped when you first started walking. Doctors didn't know what to think of this! You now run and jump all over the place. You had a staph infection that baffled the doctors when you were 7 months old. You got through that too! I'm so glad you are healthy!

You are pretty literal; tell it like it is. At the same time you love to dress up with a button up shirt and tie. You also like to play dress up by being a pirate, magician, cowboy and super hero.

Is he planking, or flying?

The things you like playing with right now are: Transformers, Hot Wheels, the game Rush Hour, Lego's, anything Toy Story and Team GeoTrax.

Buzz Lightyear, Superman and Indiana Jones are your hero's!

You now love to color. With coloring, it was like a light bulb that went off in your mind. All the sudden you wanted to color. Before the light bulb went off, you wanted nothing to do with crayons.

An alien in a spaceship.

We swear you will be into something like dance, track, gymnastics or karate. Some type of individual sport. Maybe one of these sports will channel your energy!

You are my story teller, artist and my handsome boy.

I love you very much,

Happy Birthday Mica! You must be one very special boy for your mama to write such a fabulous birthday tribute like this one. :) Good luck with Kindergarten. My little girl just finished up Kindergarten and will be starting 1st grade in a few weeks. She tells me Kindergarten was the BEST time of her life so far! You'll have a blast, I'm sure.

Many blessings,
