It is birthday time in my house. Hayden turned 7 on Sunday even though ever since he got seriously sick (when he was 3) he has thought it was his 4th birthday. Perhaps that is not a bad thing as he is about the height of a 4 year old, cognitively like an almost 3 year old and behaviourally fits right in their too.
At this time I am constantly amazed that Hayden is still with us, and even though his life was irreversible I still am constantly amazed that he survived everything that was thrown at him. So this time of the year is always bitter sweet. The if only ..... question is asked. This is probably the only time in the year I really sit and contemplate this. No time to think otherwise and such a waste of life.
I made two cakes, one for home and one for his party at school.
So Happy Birthday Hayden we hope you had a great day filled with joy and laughter.
The cake for school.
and of course what would a party be without a gift or two that you could enjoy playing with and sharing with your brother.
