Dear Beautiful Boy
You won't remember this but it was 30 years ago today. Your entry into this world was long & arduous, nothing like I was hoping it to be. You were very, very big & I was only little, so we struggled for 15 long hours, you & I. As I caught a glimpse of another night sky appearing through the top of the high window in the Birthing Suite you were finally delivered. I was too exhausted to pay you much mind, so you were whisked off to the Nursery to be bathed & held by other hands. Later that night you were brought to my room to be fed & suddenly we were alone for the first time. You weren't crying, just calmly looking around with the bluest of blue eyes I'd ever seen. I gently unwrapped your blanket to see more of you & you were perfect in every way. It was so quiet & peaceful & still after the turmoil of the day. Our eyes met & from that very moment you were & always will be, my beautiful boy.
Love your Mum xx
Son #3 in Melbourne turns 30 today. I so can't believe my children are now reaching this age! MOTH & I are flying over this morning to take him out for dinner tonight to celebrate his special day. There's a birthday party for him on Saturday night at a venue in Melbourne where he DJ's on the weekends. MOTH & I said we'd make an appearance with our ear-plugs firmly in situ for a little while, but I reckon we'll last about an hour tops before bailing out. We've decided to stay on for a week, as we're long overdue for a catch up with the other Melbourne sons #1 & 2 & many other family & friends. We've managed to wangle dinner invitations for all the other nights, so it looks like we'll be very busy & well-fed! I'll be back at the end of next week, so take care & be good!
