Happy 15th birthday to both of you, my darling stars 🌟🌟
Fifteen. Year 10. Wow! You used to run into my arms at Kindy, now you take the boat to school and I wonder where the years have gone. In another year, you two will start to learn how to drive and that would be a nightmare for both your father and I. But let’s deal with it next year!
What can I say about you two in here without being too personal? Though not so many people will read my blog, I still have to be careful of what I can share and not on this platform. Especially this is about you two, not me. So, I guess I have to respect your privacy.
Maybe I will start with your school first, because that’s the place that you spend most of your day, 5 days a week, 8.30 am to 3.15 pm, but often from 5.30 am til 5 pm. Year 10 is a challenging year for both of you. The fact that year 10 only last for three term, and in term 4 you will start year 11, it kinds of freak me out. I worry too much about your education, your academic marks, your future. Is it normal or am I a bit too much? The fact that this year you both need to think about what you going to do after high school, what direction you gonna take, ATAR (The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) or non-ATAR, is also worrying me. At the end of the day, whatever option you choose, I just hope you’ll make the right one and that you are happy with your choice.
Some of my friends often ask me whether you both already have girlfriends or not. I’m gladly to say that you have lots of girlfriends (and boyfriends) but nobody special yet. You both are social kids, like to mingle, go out for movie and do fun stuff, like wake-boarding, swimming in the sea, kick the footy, dirt-biking, etc with your mates. And I want you to keep doing those but having fun is not the only ultimate thing in your life, sometimes you need to drag your little bums and sit down and focus on your study too. I know school is boring, but at the moment it is your duty to finish high school, my darlings.
As your mother, I wish you all the best in this world for your future. May you two always help and look after each other. As brothers I want you to walk through life together, side by side. And that you both are healthy, happy, and grow to be a fine young men. Even though the days can seem endless with nagging over homework or training or dirty clothes, the years are short, and my love for both of you is always forever ❤️❤️
I wish I have decent photos of you both to accompany this post. But as we all know, you both are not shutter nutter friendly at all. You either be very silly, rude, or grumpy in front of the cam. I miss those times when you were little that you were both always smiling for camera sigh…
So, I hope you won’t kill me when someday you read this post and find these pictures of you here….
Be spontaneous and look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better 💙💙
