Virtual Coffee Date 2/22

Good morning HQ-ers,

Happy Sunday! Thanks for joining me for another #VirtualCoffeeDate.

Feeling a little emotional this morning as this time next week, I’ll be the proud owner of a 13 year old.

Next Sunday is my boy’s birthday!

It never ceases to amaze me how we got to this point, I mean I can’t even keep cacti alive so how my child lasted is beyond me!

It’s a weird feeling for me when I look at him, I’m still in awe at the almost 5ft 3ins of young man that mooches around the house when it seems like just yesterday he was a tiny 7lbs 6oz bundle!

After all these years, my emergency caesarean scar still gives me trouble. It itches so much sometimes I tear at it scratching with my nails… I know, I know. Barrier Cream is my friend now.

I was up early this morning again, definitely feeling 44 these days. Your bladder is never the same after childbirth.

Child came and sat on my lap for a little while this morning and we got to talking as I said to him “you’re still my baby even though you’re going to be 13 this time next week”.

I told him it’s a miracle he’s lasted this long as I can’t even keep a houseplant alive!

He asked how much he weighed when he was born…

I told him about how we found out we were expecting…

I thanked him for being the best almost 13 years of my life…

I reassured him that even though I’d not planned to be a single mum, I’d not change him for the World…

He admitted he’s scared of being a teenager…

He confessed he’s worried he’ll change…

We talked about what I wanted to be when I grew up and his plans…

We cuddled… a lot!

He’s growing up way too fast, my boy.

Thanks for reading x
