Happy 10th birthday to my sweet and caring son-shine ☀️ Alexander (Alex to his school friends).
The second day of a fever, bless him, and no school today but he’s still smiling his contagiously joyful grin and playing football in his new pjs (his fave activity since the age of 3)! (Arsenal by night now we’re in Yorkshire, Leeds United by day)!
Aww, my mini-me, the only one of the trio to be born in serene tranquility which set the tone for his baby and toddler years (we used to call him a ‘movie baby’ he was so calm). Xander is a deep-thinking, maths, history and footie-fanatic, he’s obsessed with protecting the planet, equality and caring for animals and he’s the only kid I know who would ask to finish his homework on his birthday on a sick day from school.
He did lap up this fab footie cake from M&S, managing a piece after a light dinner in the evening. Florence loved a taste too. Look at her staring at it below in anticipation! It did not disappoint!
Oh Xander, our little performer, perfect mimic, brilliant baker, magnetic raconteur (even if his stories are often long and convoluted), I love the cheeky twinkle in his eye which reminds me so much of my Grandad Solomon, my Mum’s Dad and he’s a real mixture of all the people who love him.
..Xander surprised us by becoming more shy and introverted in public post-pandemic (understandably) but he’s slowly coming out of his shell again and it’s wonderful to witness. Utterly loveable, a caring big brother and chief entertainer to baby Florence and all-round spreader of good vibes, I feel truly lucky to be this boy’s Mummy. Happy birthday Xander my love, thank you for teaching us so much in such a little time, you incredibly special boy ⭐️! ♥️10 years. A whole decade. Double digits. Wow ?
