Especially with our young "Miss" turning 10 (and people constantly asking "if" I feel old yet...and me coming to the conclusion, that yes...I really do!!!) and her birthday arrangements - I'm a little bit over the cupcake thing now, having made several more batches for family parties and morning teas...you get the picture!
And realizing and embracing the emotional side of my only daughter turning 10, has me looking back and thinking, why has that time just flown by so quickly? I know it is cliche. How many times have we all said it? But when I grabbed her for a cuddle at precisely 8.30am yesterday morning (the time she was born, May 2000), it really hit home. It was ten years ago I first became a mother. It was ten years ago we saw each other and fell in love.
Tahlia had a lovely day. In fact, the only low-light was that she didn't want it to end! hee hee!
We started out with opening presents on the bed, lots of cuddles and a squabble or two for attention! We had to be moving quickly though because we were having a family picnic and needed to find a nice spot before the crowds got too busy (it was a public/bank holiday).
We settled for this one where there was plenty of room to run around, play a game of cricket and some swans to feed...
The boys loved the water (but weren't allowed to enter!) and the weather was perfect!
She made her wish and blew out candles...
All in all, a successful day! YAY!!
So...with yesterday's events over with (for another year), I can now focus on our upcoming adventure.... a three week camping trip to Alice Springs and Ayers Rock!! I will officially hit the PANIC button after this post! LOL!
