where did the years go?...

My middle boy turned 13 on Saturday, I can't believe how the time has flown, how much he has grown, how 13 years a go I gave birth to this tiny, grey baby who wasn't breathing, who scared me so much because I wanted him to be fine, who, when he started to scream made me happy beyond my wildest dreams, who didn't stop crying unless I had him in a baby sling, who grew into a blond, curly haired toddler with big rosy cheeks, a quiet, smiley little boy, a tidy, bionicle loving boy who loved to play football and was very confident with his school friends, a computer geek, still loving bionicles, thoughtful, caring and smart young man who is now a teen!

We had an Italian style dinner, with Italian music, soy candles and followed by a devilishly good and 2000+ calories stuffed carrot cake
I hope my lovely chap you have many more, joyous birthdays to come

You are the poem
I dreamed of writing
the masterpiece
I longed to paint.
You are the shining star
I reached for In my
ever hopeful quest
for life fulfilled..
You are my child.
Now with all things
I am blessed.
