Well today is the day!! My beautiful babies have now turned 13 years old. I couldn’t have wished for a better April Fools days surprise!! As of today I am the mother of not one, not two, but three teenagers and surprisingly that thought does not scare me as much as it no doubt should.
Tomorrow is my baby’s birthday!! Well he isn’t a baby anymore I guess, tomorrow he will be sweet sixteen.
I know we all think it and say it, how quickly time passes but it’s so true. I remember everything every little detail. The look on his face when they placed him on my stomach after he was born still attached to the placenta and covered in yucky stuff!
I remember endless hours of just gazing at him in wonder and amazement, how I couldn’t believe that this perfect little person was mine. I remember how hard it was to leave him when I had to return to work, how my desk looked like a shrine to him all covered in his photos. The first tooth, the first steps, that day he tripped and cut his head just above the eye. First day of primary school, I remember crying so much as I drove home that I drove up onto the footpath and ended up slashing the tyre of my car.
High school was next and the horrific start to what was one of the scariest years of my life, and now here we are just about to turn 16, we have just had the first job interviews, tomorrow will be the learners permit driving test.
I could never have imagined how having children could change my life so much. I am so lucky to have been blessed with my three beautiful children, there is nothing I wouldn’t do for them. Tomorrow though it is all about my Georgie the sunshine of my life, so happy birthday baby hope you have a wonderful day and that the year ahead brings all that you desire.
Just wanted to wish all my amazing friends on WordPress a very Happy a Valentine’s Day.
Hope you all have an amazing day celebrating with that special someone or just celebrating with the people you love.
Come to think of it, I think everyday should be Valentine’s Days.
