Five years ago, after a slightly traumatic birth which I didn’t remember being traumatic until I looked back until later, (thank you gas & air) I was handed 7lbs4 of beautiful baby boy
Over the last five years he’s made me laugh more times than I can remember, made me smile every single day and just bought such awesomeness to the whole family.
Now he’s about to complete his first term at big school and when he comes home writing words and telling me about nocturnal animals and spelling phonics, I wonder where my baby has really gone.
It’s so exciting to see him grow up & at his party on Sunday seeing him run around with all his friends playing and laughing it makes you realise he really has his own little thing going on. A thing I’m not part of. But that’s ok. I know he is going to be such a lovely little boy – I happened to overhear him mediating a fight at his party and telling people to say sorry and not to mention hugging people when they’d fallen over and walking them back to their Moms with a caring arm wrapped round them. He is going to be just fine 🙂
Happy fifth birthday Charlie boy. Mommy loves you more than you’ll ever know you bloody legend!!
