On this day 13 years ago you came into the world, my baby boy.
I laboured long and hard to bring you into the world.
I was eighteen years old.
I looked into your face when you were placed onto my body, after your not so gentle entrance into the world, and I wasn’t afraid. You were beautiful.
We have grown up together, in a way. I would not be who I am, if you had not come in to my life, just at that time and made me a mother, turning me aside from other paths.
You are awesome and you’re actually turning out to be a lot like me, which is both scary and cool.
I look at you today, heading so quickly towards being a real, live, adult man and I am proud…..
….and very glad that you can still muck around and have a laugh with your Mum.
Happy Birthday darling boy, you are beautiful.
