He's 25 today

I was guilty of being a stressed out-no nonsence-first time momma who was garang to a fault. and he was just a happy lil kid, running about with nothing but fun in his mind and not a single mean bone in his body.

Being the first, he was the one to suffer the brunt of my ignorance & inexperience.

Wasnt his fault he was born with a hole in his heart.

Wasnt his fault he also had adhd.

And me, i nearly squashed out the one, most remarkable thing he still had in abundance even through all the hardship & pain.... thank god that, no thanks to me, he still held on fast to his sense of humour.

Bcos i've come to realise that it is our sense of humour that gets us through our longest days. and its our sense of humour that helps keep it all together, and our sense of humour that eventually saves us.
