Another year older and more handsome every day.

This pic of Bradley was taken at the Johannesburg Zoo at the end of September 2010 the day before I had to leave him with his sister and return alone to KZN. :(
My baby celebrated his 15th birthday on December 25th, 2010 - my Christmas baby.
This fact went unannounced on Blogger but not unnoticed in our family. Bradley came down from Jhb with Robynne for just six days.
When I saw Brad again after two and a half months, I couldn't believe how much taller he had grown. He is towering over me now. He seems to be maturing so much now at this stage and unfortunately I am not there to spend this time with him.
Happy Birthday, my Brad and may this next year bring you a lot of success as you continue with your homeschooling and also continue to develop your character as a strong, resilient, good-natured and loving young man of principle. I have every faith in you, my son.
I love you and miss you a lot.
Lots of love, Mom. xxx


  1. Congratulations to him - and all the best.

  2. Happy Birthday Bradley and all the best for 2011. Hang in there mom I can only imagine how much you must miss him! T has been away for a month I can't wait to see him on Saturday

  3. Raised by you, I have no doubt he'll be all those things and more.

  4. Cat - Thank you. For me, its just taking one day at a time.

    Lulu - I hope you have had a good month in spite of missing your boy. Hope you are recharged and ready for the year.

    Griever - Thank you. This is the age though when teens start being impatient with their moms and moms just hope that some of their teaching and training sticks!
