No of course it's not me who is 21, I'm just a bit older than that...
It is my wonderful eldest son, who came into the world 21 years ago today at 6.03am. I cant believe it - where have all those years gone? I have a photo frame in my room with photos taken a few minutes after he was born and one taken on his first birthday. And now he is so much taller than me! He is a great lad (I know I would say that but it is true!) who helps out lot around the house, helps his younger brothers and sister with their maths and science homework (although I am a teacher neither of these are in my skills portfolio) and dotes on his grandmother - she is a marvellous 87 and if ever she needs any help he is straight on his bike to see to whatever she needs.
Together we enjoy watching a variety of sports, with our top favourites being football (soccer for my American bloggy friends) and Formula 1 Motorsport. We are great fans of the Brazilian football team and have been together to see them play on a few occasions. We have yet to go to a Grand Prix together but I am really hoping to sort that out next season.
He is a very laid back person, very patient and kind. And I am very, very blessed to be his mum.
Happy 21st birthday eldest son!
