It's been three years, 
it still hurts and not a day goes by that I don't think about you
we miss you, 
I hate that you are missing out on so much of our lives, 
I hate that we can never hear your voice again, see you smile 
I finally realised that the grief was making me sick,
I worried about getting sick or even worse seeing someone else I love get sick
I'm not doing that anymore, 
I know you wouldn't want me to
I am living and loving every minute now, 
the good bits and the bad bits
all because I have my favourite people in the world around me
all of them except one

I miss you dad

Robots, games and cake

Thank you all for the extra sweet birthday wishes for the little guy.
I wanted to share a few pics (ok...maybe more than a few) of his day which was spent at Bundoora Park with his lovely friends and cousins.

If you are in Melbourne, Cooper's Settlement* is perfect for little people parties.

So this is what has been on my mind for the last month or so, creating a special creative and fun filled day for a little boy who is just growing up way too fast for my liking.

What about you, do you have a five year old going to school in the new school year?

How are you coping emotionally? Are you feeling a little lost?

Or is it just me?

I love when you give me sloppy kisses
I love your sweet innocence
I love your inquisitive mind
I love that you ask me if I am feeling ok
I love how you get so excited re telling a story
I love the handsome big boy you have become
I love that you ask if I need any help
I love that you still sneak into my bed at night just because 
I love that we hang out
I love when you get deep in thought at times
I love that for you a cardboard box can be anything from a rocket ship to a radio
I love that to you try to make your bed sometimes and excitedly show your daddy
I love that you are just like a mini daddy at times
I love that you are sweet 
I love that you sleep with monkey at night
I love it when I kiss you goodnight as you are sleeping 
I love that you run up to me every morning and give me the biggest hug and say "goot morning mummy"
I love those words that you mispronounce, they make me smile
I love that you get so proud when you say a few words in greek {kalinikta (good night), meelo (apple), se agapo (I love you), efcharisto (thank you)}
I love your excitement to go to school next year with Amie
I love those big squishy hugs you give
I love your style
I love your sensitivity
I love that you are just the coolest little boy
I love your energy
I love your beautiful spirit
I love your thoughtfulness
I love that you are the sweetest boy I know

I just love YOU
