EEEkkkk...I am 39 today. We are all full of cold and had to cancel going out to get my birthday pressies from DH yesterday because I just didn't feel up to walking round trying clothes on..etc.
I still have the picture in my mind from yesterday when I turned round to see ds standing there grinning from ear to ear from behind a pot plant and next to him, dd! She was absolutely beaming and holding a large box of Matchmakers! The look on their little faces said it all!
I was woken today by shuffling on the bed and lots of giggling and ssshhhh..ing! shortly followed by a lovely rendition of "Happy Birthday."
I had tears in my eyes, I must admit. Seeing dd trying so hard to join in and watching her brother so closely for help. I'll have her attempts echoing in my ears for a long time,even if it was only the odd word...her speech has a long, long way to go,, but she has come on so much in the last month or so....
DD's SN nursery is closed for staff training and ds was quite concerned that I was going to have "my party" without him! So I have promised to play some party games with them when he gets home from school!
Never mind 39 - I'll feel more like 80 at the end of the day!
