Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, June 03, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Just a short but very special list this week - I'm loving these two special guys in my life who are both celebrating their birthdays...

Firstly my big boy, who is 12 years old today!  Can you believe that this time next year I will be the mother of a teenager??  Scary - yet rather exciting too.

He has grown up so fast, moving from an obsession with The Wiggles as a child, to an obsession with all things grown up at the moment (you know, BBQ's, plain birthday cakes and duvet covers). Boy I love him - and am so proud of the amazing young man he is becoming.

Also loving my biggest boy (who sometimes is just like another big kid around the house) who will be celebrating his birthday on Sunday.  I can't begin to tell you how much I love him and how precious he is.  My best mate and personal live-in-jester, life would be so boring (but very organised and tidy) without him around.

I must also thank him for all the blog humour that he has created put up with... namely my Heart Bunting, Crochet Mansick Pills and his recent Royal Crush among other things.

Happy Birthday boys!!!
