Birthday Boy

Tomorrow my son is 10 years old.
How the heck did that happen?
The time has just disappeared.
Very soon this boy will be taller than me.
He's changing so fast now that it's kind of scary.
He's quiet, shy and gentle.
A real bookworm and a bit of a science geek (like my husband).
And he's one of the kindest people I know.
I can't imagine my life without this little man.

For his birthday he wanted a Tablet as he's gadget mad.
He'd requested a chocolate cake, covered in fudge icing and then decorated with lots of chocolate buttons.
So we all sat down to tea this afternoon to celebrate.

Sadly he's at school tomorrow (he thinks this isn't fair, everyone should get the day off on their birthday!), but we're going out for ice cream after.
And then for his Birthday dinner he's asked for a takeaway.
Simple pleasures.

Happy Birthday. Love you always.
