3rd Birthday

Yesterday was my youngest son’s 3rd birthday. 

We had such a busy lovely day yesterday I didn’t get a chance to blog.

He was so excited he woke up before any one else in the house, snuck downstairs and I was woken up to him shouting up the stairs 

‘Mum I got a bike, I got a bike!’ 

We all rushed downstairs before he opened up the wraped gifts. He loved his balance motocross bike, his kit and helmet but was just as pleased with the toy motor bike that cost £2 from the supermarket and he now sleeps with it next to his pillow! 

Birthday boy did have one complaint though. 

‘Where’s the tree?’ He said

‘What tree?’ We said

‘The Christmas tree for my birthday’

Bless his little heart he was expecting the house to be decorated and all his birthday presents under a Christmas tree and its little things like that that just make me love him even more.

Hubby thinks I’m mad but I said we might start up a family tradition of a ‘birthday tree’.

We decided against a birthday party and instead birthday boy got to pick a family day out. He chose the beach and so we headed off early. 

The kids had a great time on the little rides, we ate the BEST fish and chips on the beach, and then grabbed our buckets and spades to go make sandcastles and paddle.

Well when we got to the beach the tide was all the way in. No sand in sight it was all under water. We spent the next hour walking and walking to look for a sandy bit and ended up hoping in the car stopping at every car park looking over the edge to look for sand. 

Luckily we ended up finding a bit of beach that had some sand not covered by water which pleased the boys we rushed down to make sandcastles and paddle as quickly as we could. DS1 ended up right in the sea almost up to his shoulders, shivering while saying 

‘Come in its warm!’

DS2 went in up to his waist and loved it and DS3 ran in and out laughing and dug holes in the sand and then…. pooed himself because he was having to much fun to go to the toilet. We had to run back to the car clean a very, very messy child and then the car started having a disco with the warning lights.

Luckily we got home ok and we were all having such a good day that we just laughed about it all.

Oh and I totally cheated on the birthday cake. DS3 wanted a motorbike cake and so I bought some mini motorbikes and stuck them on a ready made chocolate cake he couldn’t have been happier with it and it was the most stress free birthday cake I have ever made 🙂



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.
