antimo

April 15, 2021

Our son smiles with his whole face. Like his Mum. And he’s first off the mark to launch into a lake. Like his Dad. Antimo turns ten this week, and it’s hard to grasp that I’ve only known him for a decade. It feels like much longer. Maybe because I’d imagined him for so many years before he actually existed. Minutes after Antimo was born, every worry I’d ever had was reduced to dust. He was here. ‚ÄúStill waters run deep,” said a woman at the supermarket checkout a couple of years later after locking eyes with the toddler in my arms. And she was right. His waters do run deep. Happy Birthday, Antimo. We love you.
