Today it’s the Little Man’s 10th birthday. I’m struggling after getting just 2 hours sleep last night, but I’ll do my best to make the day special. In fact we have a special week planned, I’m sure it’ll be a birthday week to remember.
10th Birthday Boy
This time ten years ago I was holding my baby for the first time. He was a bit of a surprise baby as I believed my family was complete and I was ‘getting on a bit!’ But to have another little boy at that time made me feel truly blessed. And he really is the sweetest Little Man.
He was a weird baby who was happiest just lying on his back, he didn’t want to crawl, and ended up being a bottom shuffler. He didn’t want to walk and he was nearly two before he was walking independently. He didn’t want to talk either, but now I can’t shut him up. We moved house when he was three years old and he’s the only child who doesn’t remember the old house. The place I lived for 24 years.
Cake for the Little Man
You can’t have a birthday without cake. I had no idea what to do him this year, he’s had some pretty amazing cakes in the past. I spent many hours making his Minecraft sword cake, and even his Paw Patrol cake. But this year he gave me nothing…so I just iced his cake and put Happy Birthday and candles on it. At least we can hope it tastes good 🙂
The Little Man
He has always been my Little Man and probably always will be. But as he grows I know he’s going to become a real man. All my children are growing up and I’m left with no babies. I’m looking forward to what the future will bring, what they will achieve.
In the meantime we will enjoy the rest of the summer. He has friends coming around to spend time in the garden tomorrow, and on Tuesday we have a special day out planned. But today, we are going to play with his new presents and enjoy a BBQ (hopefully) later.
Happy 10th Birthday Little Man xx
