This is just a bit of fun (I try not to take myself too seriously) written with my son Michael’s voice – it’s 4 sleeps now.

Do you remember your 10th birthday?

I remember when my brother, two years older than me, turned 10 and I thought it was the biggest thing ever.

Michael’s Birthday Countdown

Five sleeps to the day
when I go from single
to double digits

10

this is big
it’s huge
ginormous
splendiferous
extraterrestrially phantasmagorically

out-there

it’s hard to sleep
with the anticipation

I’m tingling inside
with vibrations
of expectations

an exclamation
marks the spot
!
