My nephew Max is a teenager! Lordy, where did that 13 years go? I still remember so vividly my sister Dee-anne, ringing me with the news. I was living in Kununurra, Western Australia and Mum and Dad were visiting, Dee-anne wanted to tell them herself, so I wasn’t allowed to share the news – I nearly popped a gasket.
My sister, she that was never having kids – was having a baby. Oh the hilarious conversations we had on the phone about what kind of mother she would make and the clangers she would pull. And I am happy to report, clangers were pulled, mistakes were made – and don’t we all, but above all, Max was loved unconditionally everyday. He is a wonderful kid and I am so lucky to be able to share so much of his life.
Happy Birthday Max.
