Thirty years ago today, I gave birth to a beautiful 9lb baby boy - which surprised me somewhat, as I had it in mind I was expecting a girl. I was completely thrilled, but totally unprepared for my son's arrival!
Boys are rare in our family, so Anthony held 'only boy' status until the birth of his own son six months ago ...
Watching my son become a father himself, has been an absolute joy and seeing him share his 30th birthday celebrations with his own son for the first time yesterday, was priceless.
Ants has always been the very best kind of son and when life was tough for us in the past, never failed to be strong for me and his sister.
I am immensely proud of the man my son has become and because the things that truly matter sometimes don't get said, I'd just like to say ...
Happy Birthday Boy and thank you for the hugs when I have needed them most.
My love to you always,
Your very proud Muva xxx
