Birthdays Birthdays! It’s all going mad here!

turning 10

As I wake this morning, I will be very aware that I am getting older…

This morning, my son, Lil Man, reaches his first big milestone age.  He’s hit double figures today, 10!

Where did that time go? How did that happen? Surely not??!!  But he’s my Lil Man!!! He is a little person truly, and doesn’t look like he should be 10, so it makes it even harder to comprehend!

I still feel like it was yesterday, when we were struggling to conceive, and then that day arrived when he couldn’t wait, and dive-bombed into our life 3 weeks earlier than expected!  It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions from then, but the biggest one is love, unconditional love for our Lil Man.


I love this little man so much, and he will be there, my Lil Man, forever and a day! Happy birthday son, your mummy, and daddy are so proud of you and love you so much!

Wait, it doesn’t finish there…

10 years ago, I managed to give my Mum the best present ever… something that I don’t think I could have even planned… you see the day my Lil Man dive-bombed into our lives was already my wonderful mum’s birthdate!  So, what a present we gave her that day!

And truly, a heartfelt ‘Happy birthday’ to you too, my inspiration, and the mother I aspire to be like too! Love you to the moon and back mum!

That’s my mum, a true vintage!

So please join me in wishing my Lil Man and mum a very happy birthday Peeps! I’ll eat cake on your behalf! 😛

    Yeah, the Minions again!!! I love that one 😃! Happy Birthday again to your little big man! I so understand how you feel. My daughter reaches double that age in 2 months. Unbelievable! But as you say, they always remain our babies. And ever birthday we recall the years that passed. Other than your boy my daughter was overdue 11 days. She was born as she lives today… staying home and enjoying to be cared for… lol. My oldest sun who turned 16 is not very amused when I tell him that he will always remain my cuddle boy… haha! Yesterday I stumbled over photos where he wasn’t even two… oh well, to die for!
    Have a wonderfu, wonderful day! Your son is blessed with such a loving mother and family! 💖 🎁 🎂 🎆 🎉 🎊 🎈 💖
