Daniel's tenth birthday

Today is Daniel's tenth birthday...My gosh, where did the time go? He is my first grandchild, and it seems like he was just a little baby in my arms. Aside from the Dr., who delivered him by c-section, I was the very first person to hold him...I wondered, before he was born, what I would feel for this little baby? Would I feel like he was my flesh and blood? Would I feel that bond that I felt when I held my own babies for the first time? The second he was in my arms, I was hooked..hook, line and sinker..My little Daniel Bug, just a tiny little guy in my arms. Now I see a boy growing up and I wish I could have just a few minutes back, when he was that baby again. It has been hard on him. All these changes in our lives. It is hard on both of us that I cant just be his grandma like I used to. He has to share me and I am a full time parent to the two little ones. Sometimes I wish things were different too, Daniel. I miss you being the center of my world when it is just you and I together. I hope before you become a man that we can have a whole lot more of that time, just the two of us! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Daniel! They grow up so fast. I have a hard time being the kind of Nana that I would like to be since I have my own 3 little ones. I don't get to spend time with the grandkids like I would like to. It's a hard thing to balance!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy birthday Daniel! What a lucky boy, with that lovely cake!

Oh, I'm really looking forward to being a grandmother. But, since my boy's only a smidgen older than your Daniel, I'll have to wait a while.

happy birthday Daniel!

and you might not get to spend as much 1 on 1 time with him as either of you would like, but he is so lucky to have a grandma who loves him so much
