Lucky For Some

It finally arrived....My baby boy became a teenager.

I know it's a cliche but I really don't know where the time went. In the blink of a teary eye, he's gone from being a blonde chubby faced cutie covered in gunk, to a very tall, still blonde, handsome young fella with a wicked sense of humour (he gets this from me obviously!!!)

We celebrated over two days, starting with a day trip to the seaside on Birthday Eve. It was a lovely family day which I treasured despite the massive argument in the car before we had even reversed off our drive!
We played crazy golf and frisbee on the beach, followed by fish and chips and ice cream before heading for home, tired and windswept.

The days of huge jelly and ice cream  parties at home are long gone (sniff sniff) he's far too cool for jelly and ice cream  and pass the parcel and despite my best efforts to persuade him that you are NEVER too old/cool for jelly and ice cream and pass the parcel alternative arrangements were made. Jelly and ice cream were to be replaced with clothes shopping trips and footie matches with his mates, although still chaperoned by dad..who lets face it is still a big kid himself!

Even the cake was replaced this year by Krispy Kreme donuts

We did however start the day with a pillow fight...some things never stop being fun, whatever your age.
