Oscar, our first born is 9 today!
I can’t believe that time has gone so fast and we have a 9 year old, where has the time gone? He took his time coming into this world with what would be a 23 hour labour.
The short version of his birth story is that he ‘got stuck’! He has a big head bless him, we joke and say that he got stuck because of his melon head! So, there I was on the rather bohemian and totally wonderful midwife led unit. Our families all excited that they would most likely be meeting their first grandchild (on both sides) that afternoon, the 5th June. Oscar, obviously wanted to keep us all waiting and at about 6pm that evening I was taken in the back of an ambulance whilst in labour to the local hospital as I was failing to progress. James followed in the car whilst trying to catch up on the 2 meals he had missed whilst we had been in hospital! Anyway, 7 long hours later which included an epidural and a c section Oscar arrived!
We are so blinkin’ proud of our Oscar. He’s always been a very considered boy who surpises us with his emotional insights and his take on the world. He is thoughtful and kind and such a wonderful big brother. As he grows up he genuinely good company. His school reports are always full of statements about how he is keen to help others and cheers his friends up with his jokes. He’s so quick witted and has awesome comic timing! He is of course the typical 9 year old boy who would be glue to an electronic device all day if he was allowed to!
So today his birthday breakfast of choice is Frosted Wheats and his birthday tea after school will be a typical birthday tea crammed with; cheap white bread, ham, cheese, cocktail sausages, chocolate fingers and party rings! Whoop! Oscar has chosen to have 3 friends over for a sleepover on Saturday night for which he is planning hour by hour!
Happy Birthday wonderful boy x
