I had a lovely (and rare) moment this morning where I woke up before the baby told me to GED UP GED UP and I walked out to the lounge room where I got a quiet and big cuddle with my 10 year old Daisy. 10! I know it’s the start of a big decade for her. One where she goes from a girl to a teen to a young woman. Where she will grow and learn, make mistakes, travel the world, make and break with friends, discover boys…it’s a big one. But this morning, I got that little girl and I soaked in every breath of it.
We had a lovely morning just the 5 of us opening presents, going to the cafe for breakfast before School, playing with balloons (OK that was just Maggie over and over and over again).
I spent most of the day in the kitchen preparing for friends and family over for dinner. It wasn’t anything fancy, just food thrown into the middle of the table while we all stood around and nattered on an unseasonable cool evening. Daisy got to hang with her mates, take calls from friends and family.
Tonight she went to bed and told me that she feels so lucky. What a good feeling that is to have. I hope she remembers it and looks back on her turning 10 with a smile.
Happy Birthday sweet Daisy May Macdonald. 10 years old x
