Patrick is 12

Posted on

My baby turns 12 today.

That means no more child’s rate for airline tickets or hotel rooms. That’s one year away from being a teenager. The next 12 months will be the last of his childhood. But he will always, always be my baby.

Spa-aaahhh!

My erstwhile knitwear model. When he was younger, it was easier to just put the WIP on him and take a photo.  These days, it takes a lot more convincing and sometimes bribery to get him to put something on, stay still for longer than 2 seconds so that I can take photos.

I still get hugs but only if I grab him and wrap him in my bingo arms and don’t let go. Otherwise he will run away and avoid getting a hug from mama. He still kisses me goodnight though. Pardon the awful photo, this was on his birthday last year.

I can’t wait to see him conquer the world. After a patchy start in life, he seems to have it together and a lot of it on his own too so I am proud of the young man he’s become. I love you, Pat. Happy birthday!

  1. They will always be your baby. Mine is 25, and still my baby! He is growing up a lovely young boy now. And you both look extremely happy together, quite the pair still. Hugs to you both.

    • True that! Thank you so much – we’re celebrating properly after exams, possibly doing an overnight camping in the mountains.

      • Oh wow, now that sounds like the best fun to have. Moonlight, bright stars, and camp fire, lots of stories to tell. Indeed a great idea.
        All the best with the exams. Keeping my fingers crossed, not that I think he needs it, he looks very clever!

  2. What a sweet post about Patrick and the wonderful young man he is becoming! Happy birthday to your baby boy xoxo
