The Birthday Child

Everything's been different
   All the day long,
Lovely things have happened,
   Nothing has gone wrong.

Nobody has scolded me,
   Everyone has smiled.
Isn't it delicious
   To be a birthday child?

~ Rose Fyleman

Today is my youngest son Ben's tenth birthday. Wow. I can't believe a whole decade has gone by since he was born! Where did the time go?

Birthdays were always so exciting when I was growing up.  I remember waking up early on my birthday each year, ready to jump out of bed and start my special day! I love Ms. Fyleman's last line: "Isn't it delicious to be a birthday child?"

My dear Benjamin, I hope you have a delicious day!
