it was daniel's birthday today.
he is already twelve.
i remember when he was born. he almost died.
two out of ten on the apgar test.
my golden touseled haired boy.
my spaghetti thin baby. with a big head.
who i kept under blue sheets in the hospital so i could look at his extraordinarily thin legs and his perfect new face. on his ET shaped head.
who never ate anything.
is twelve today.
somehow he grew. despite never eating anything.
he received today:
one samurai fighting fish.
one fish bowl.
two fake corals (one blue one orange) for his fish bowl
one fish net.
one small tub of blood worms (to feed fighting fish)
one shark key ring (from miranda and mark)
one bow and arrow made by rubin.
one queen cd (greatest hits)
one wind up torch (from sal)
one manchester united cap (from tati and PO) and i suspect the most favourite present.
one rock hard home made birthday cake.
he went to bed the happiest boy on earth.
and i shall go to bed the happiest mama on earth.
toodely an' all with enormous love and gratitude.
