Life was so different before you.
I was surprised when you came,
so early, so tiny, so perfect.
I held you in my arms,
pretending that I knew how to care for you,
of course I learnt, I grew and so did you.
I still watch you,
wondering if I am doing an ok job of being your Mum.
Maybe that is how it is with your first born,
Together we learn a new dance everyday,
I am learning to let you go,
to let you grow up.
And boy, I am so proud of you.
Happy 16th Birthday Whyatt,keep shining.Mum x
