No.1 pride and joy was 16 yesterday.
I have no idea where the last 16 years have gone.
His arrival was less traumatic than that of his little brother, but was by no means easy.
After 42 hours of labour he was eventually delivered by Kiellands forceps. I'll spare you the gorey details, but it meant a long recovery time for me, although thankfully he was fighting fit from the start.
Just after he started school, he was diagnosed with dyspraxia. This affects his coordination, particularly fine motor skills, and planning skills.
......and doing what he loves most .........
