Birthday Message to my Son

This is what 1 hour old looks like; and a mother after 18 1/2 hours of labour.

Happy 21st Birthday Sweetheart. You know what I remember when I think back to 21 years ago today? “Ooooooooouuuuuuuch … get it out of me!!!!”

Oh yeah … and that it’s nice to have a baby, blah blah blah.

Loads & Packs & Tons of Love, Mom xxxooo

… that’s what I wrote on Facebook as he hates it when I gush over him and I’m a chronic lovey dovey type of mother. But he never looks at my website so I’ll do some gushing here. I was born to mother, always sort of felt like half a person … until the morning he was born. The second he came out of me he looked right up at me and kept staring and I felt whole for the first time in my life. Sounds corny but it’s true. I was simply born to be a mom and having my 2 beautiful children has been the most rewarding, most fun and most wonderful experience of my life. My kids have heard all this a million times so hardly news to them. I never pine over the fact that they’re growing up as I haven’t missed anything in their lives. Have been there wallowing in every second and love seeing them mature and become independent. Feel I’ve done my job as a mother to see them turning into such confident, capable, compassionate, polite and fun individuals. Couldn’t be more proud.
