Six years ago, the scariest damn thing ever happened to me. But little did I realize the scariest thing would forever be one of the best things to ever grace my life - right along side things such as his father and his sister.

Charles Joseph Criss? I love you so much, baby boy. You make me so proud to be your mommy. Being able to be your mommy is such a tremendous honor, you wouldn’t even believe. I will love you until the end of time.

I love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.

Happy birthday, Bean.

  • Darren: I want that on my gravestone.
  • Mia: Same. A+.
  • Darren: Slightly weird but mostly nice.
  • Mia: Just like you.
  • Darren: I called you cute, asshole.
  • Darren: I'm comin, I'm comin.
  • Mia: I wanna kiss your arm.
  • Darren: YEAH!
  • Mia: RUDE ASS.
  • Darren: Not as cute as my wife, bro.
  • Mia: OH YEAH?!
  • Darren: Yup. Luckiest man alive.
  • Mia: You're cute.
  • Darren: I don't think you realize that that is one of my favorite parts about coming home.
  • Mia: Squealing children and a wife who kisses you down?
  • Darren: Always.
  • Mia: I like it when you walk in and she starts squeaking.

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine…
