Halfway points always seem bigger, I think...Five years old is so much older sounding than four.  Now my oldest baby is fifteen.  FIFTEEN!...half way between a child of ten and a young man of twenty.
There were times I just was so "touched out" when you were little and now I will feel lucky if you let me hug you for more than a second today...it goes fast, people!  I've still got little ones who are happy to cuddle, but someday I won't and I try to remember that every day.
Happy birthday, sweetie.  Fifteen is a long time to have been a mom - feels like a lifetime and an instant all at once.
