For some reason, SmallBean turning seven has really shocked me. The time has flown so so fast. Why his seventh birthday is making me feel slightly melancholy and reflective I am not sure. I thought that your first childs tenth birthday was the one which hit you hard. Maybe it is the realisation that he is about to move up to KS2. Perhaps just having my birthday is making me more thoughtful. I don't know.
But he is not a dependent and needy boy any more. He is an interesting and funny, articulate and unique boy.
Happy Birthday Gorgeous Boy. Your cake is in the oven.
