5 Days to Birthday Boy



In less than a week my youngest child will be 3 years old. 3 years old! I can no longer call him my baby when he is going to be 3!

What a gorgeous, wonderful, kind, caring, quirky, beautiful soul my son has become in his (almost) 3 years of being on this earth.

I remember the day he came into this world so perfectly. One thing that reminds me the most of this wonderful day had to be Dynamo. Do you know Dynamo the magician? I did before that day but by late morning on 9th August 2013 I knew pretty much all there was to know about him. While the anaesthetist was administering my spinal block (incorrectly the first three times!) the group of doctors were having a jolly time discussing the amazing wonder that is Dynamo. I had heard so much about him I was wondering if this was a brand new show for the magician and he was going to burst out of my stomach.

That all seams so long ago now and while every day I am trying to teach this little person a little more about life and a little more responsibility I can’t help but feel sad that he is growing up and his new found independence feels like he needs me less and less.

The soon to be birthday boy of course can not wait. He keeps telling me

‘I’m gonna be a big boy now like Daddy’

I wonder if he expects he is going to wake up with chest hair, tattoos and stubble. I hope he isn’t to disappointed!



I am a 28 year old mum living in Kent. I am totally outnumbered living with my husband and 3 boys but I love the fun and adventure they bring to my life. As a family we enjoy being active and to get out and about as much as possible. A little about us Me- My husband and I met 12 years ago when I was 16 and him 19. Being so young I don't think either of us expected a nervous first date at the cinema to lead to marriage and 3 children but we soon became inseparable. It can be hard staying 'girlie' in a house full of boys. DS1- DS1 is very sporty. He enjoys football, rugby and swimming but his real passion is motocross. I think hubby would have happily had him on a motocross bike the second he took his first step but he first started to ride when he got his first 50cc bike at 6 years old. Now, aged 8, he rides with complete confidence on his 65cc and is desperate to start competing. As his mother I will always worry about him no mater what he does but seeing how happy this sport makes him makes me want to support him 100%. DS2- DS2 is a real animal lover. He would love nothing more than to have a house full of cats and dogs but unfortunately for him the only pet we have is our goldfish named 'Goldie'. When we visit family who have dogs DS2 will happily sit there for hours talking, stroking and trying to teach them tricks. Computer games is DS2's favourite pass time. He was gifted a tablet for Christmas last year and now, at 6, he has my husband bugging him on tips to get new levels. To keep active DS2 really enjoys swimming. He is not afraid of the water at all and would swim every day given the chance. He has such a loving, caring personality. DS3- DS3 is, well, a real handful as most 2 year olds are. He is never short of energy and zooms everywhere at a million miles an hour on his favourite balance 'motorbike'. Much to my husbands joy DS3 is also obsessed, yes obsessed with motocross. All he wants to do is play motorbikes, wear DS1's helmet and boots at any given chance and watch the videos of DS1 riding. DS3 learns so much from his older brothers and he surprises me everyday with how daring and forward he is in so many ways.
