Hot on the heels of the blog birthday on Saturday comes son 1's birthday today. My baby is 16. Which makes certain things legal...but I'd prefer not to think about that!
He couldn't make up his mind what he wanted for his main present, so we gave him money and today he and I went to the bank to open his first current account, with a standing order from my account to his for his allowance each week. We are trying to teach him some financial responsibility in the hope that he actually will be ready to fly the nest one day...
Three notable things:
1. Son 1's birthday. It has made me feel very old.
2. Thinking about the dedicated neo-natal unit staff who saved his life 16 years ago. My poem about the experience is here.
3. The M&S chocolate Doctor Who Dalek cake we will all be eating this evening to celebrate.
