I don't want them to grow up too quickly and miss what being young and carefree is all about.
I want them to enjoy it all. But being their mom, I want to be part of their enjoyment too...So far so good.

Birthday Boy

There was a time, 16 years ago today or last night at 2:20 am, when he was a tiny little baby.

6 weeks early, upside down and backwards, one broken rib(me), and major blood loss, but in no time, we were both just fine.

Now it's GCSE's and playing hockey at county level and 6'2 and charming. I could go on. I adore my boy, even when he drives me crazy.

Happy Birthday my little chick!


  1. Oh gorgeous young lad - how wonderful and the love for each other clearly shows through in this photo.

    I haven't picked up the Boston twang yet - doing my best to avoid it!!

  3. Lovely photo!! Isn't it amazing how our boys grow... I know that it's what they DO but still it confounds me... x
