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
!

    1. Thanks Ben and gros bisous d’Australie Γ  votre famille πŸ™‚ (used Google translator – haha, cheating and probably incorrect). Michael has been making paper balloons all morning (draws them, colours them and cuts them out to pin on the wall) – he cut the ‘string’ off one accidentally and said ‘that’s ok, it is now a ball’ πŸ˜‰

  1. Lovely poem by a wonderful mum for a splendiferous nearly double digit boy of ten! Happy Birthday Michael, make the biggest wish and eat lots of cake! πŸ™‚

  2. Happy b’day Michael! For my tenth we had a party and my brother, aunty and a gril who lived behind us all dressed up like kiss and we mimed a concert. The photos of that still make me smile! For the record, I was Peter Criss.

  3. Wonderful!

    10 did feel like a very big year – that single to double digit is a big change!

    I think my 10th birthday was spent at a Pizza Hut birthday party – you know, back when they still had a dine-in restaurant – all the kids had their parties there. πŸ™‚

  4. I felt very important when I turned 10. It is such a grand-sounding age. And the double digits make you feel very significant as a kid. I hope Michael has a fantastic day!
