Happy Birthday

Raptor turned 2. I still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday, but at the same time it feels like he has been here with us forever, a part of the inventory.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ups and down of motherhood. No book can tell you how proud you can feel when your child says his first words, or works out how to take his own shoes off. You get excited about birthdays and christmas because you want to see your children happy. They give your life new meaning, add value to everything you do.
Yes, they are demanding, and noisy, smell and break things, but they are little people, and your task is to help them grow, learn and find their independence. They are so full of life and innocence.
With Raptor’s birthday came the sudden realisation for Raptor-Daddy that he isn’t always going to be small, that he isn’t always going to be god in his son’s eyes, and that he needs to treasure every moment.
We had a wonderful long weekend, spending much-needed time together. Raptor was thoroughly spoiled and showered in presents and sweets.
I did my part by making one masterpiece of a cake.
After dinner, we watched Raptor’s favourite movie for the thousandth time, and he fell asleep on daddy’s lap, staring in his eyes.
