In the blink of an eye, you have gone from this…
Whenever I hug you and teasingly ask you “Where did my baby boy go?” and you’d tease me back by replying “Uh, grew up?”, I don’t think you realise that my heart breaks just a little bit each and every time.
Every time I restrain myself from kissing your cheek in public, I still feel that tiny twinge of pain in my chest.
How could 12 long years pass by as though in just the blink of an eye?
Happy birthday to you, my dear son! (And thanks for reminding me that we’ll have to go to Pendaftaran very soon to have your IC* done!)
