There comes a time when you realise that although your children are thrilled to be getting another year older, their age is actually starting to make you look very old! To say that I now have a fourteen year old does make me feel suddenly 'middle aged' but not enough to stop any celebration surrounding the Superteen's birthday!
The day was particularly quiet as he is having friends over on the weekend, however we did celebrate with family.
What, btw, do you get a fourteen year old boy? Vouchers, of course! And a singlet-type jersey of his favourite basketball team!
And what do you feed him? A Dreamy Donut stack cake covered with lollies (gummy ones are the only way to go, apparently!) and candles!
The day was going well until the Superteen decided to play a football kicking game at the end of the driveway. Somehow he managed to stub his toe so badly that we thought he'd ripped the complete top of his toe off (it was hard to tell with all of the blood) and an urgent trip to the doctor's was needed. Three numbing needles, no stitches and lots of bandages later, he was home to show off his birthday war-wound!
Yep, just another day in my busy life alright!
