Brody is nine. 21.10.19


Nine whole years of knowing, loving and raising this amazing boy.  I cannot tell you how proud and blessed we feel. Every. Single. Day.

You are just a lovely human being Brody and it is a pleasure to be your mum.

So this year, you cry a lot less, you talk back a little more, and you always, always tell me ‘in a minute mum’.  There are a lot less bedtime snuggles asked for, ( though you do decide this is the best time of the day to tell me stories in great detail, every detail !! ) and in fact I think you are pipping to get Rogan out of your room and have it all to yourself……you are growing up I guess.  It’s a good thing, but you still have a lot of innocence about you which I love and pray it stays that way for another few years.  You are the oldest, you are the one who goes through it all first and then passes your wisdom on to the other two so I suspect they will grow up even faster than you ( SOB!)

I am so happy you and Rogan get on so well most of the time, but you do love to tease and wind him up and there’s the wrestling matches and the nipping – but I think thats pretty normal for brothers right?

With Evie though, oh I see such a beautiful bond between you two.  I asked you one day recently what you thought of wee Evie and you said ” all I can say is love….I just love her’. I mean, you nearly had me in tears right there for I know the feeling so well, its how I feel about all of you.  Just heart bursting LOVE.   You are very protective over her, I hope you always will be.


So you had your usual besties Carter, Dylan, Elijah and of course Rogan and went to We are Vertigo, ran yourselves ragged and came home to play some more.  Im pleased that those screaming soft play parties are over for you. The noise in that room when the cake comes out drives me nuts…..but I think you are past that now.  ONE DOWN! Two to go lol!


You still read like crazy, are obsessed with lego and are very creative. You have your Dad’s logical brain, you are very factual and will always correct me when I sing the lyrics wrong ( which I always do).

I can make you laugh very easily though, sometimes with only a look….we definitely find the same things funny.  You love your tablet and especially joining worlds with others in Minecraft and Roblox and you are very good at explaining how things work or teaching others to do something.

Im in two minds here whether to publish this or not – for though I am a great teller of other people’s stories…..I wonder now as you get older – will you still want every detail of yourself out there for the world to read??  You know what? I think this one will be ok….I don’t think many read my actual blog anyway lol…..and when you’re ten ( oh geez that is next year WAH!) When you turn 10 Brody, I will write these blog posts only for you.

So here you are, our 5 minute photoshoot in my studio, which you came running out to ( in your socks) voluntarily and we took our shots without any drama, bribery or sweat pouring down my back as it has been in other years.

Thank you for being so awesome Brody, you handsome, funny, clever, kind, cool little man.

We love you.  Happy 9th Birthday x
