Junior Son turns 7 tomorrow. I have made him a huge scrap book (a once in a seven years present) and have written the following serious guidelines for him for growing up. I hope he remembers to refer to them along the way.
Always put the toilet seat down.
Never run away from home…ever!
Make sure that one day when you have a wife, you treat her as well as your dad treats me.
Love, Hugs and Snuggles are important now when you are 7. Make sure they are still important when you are 27.
No matter what, always try your best and then keep trying.
Be true to your true friends, but most importantly, be true to yourself.
Do good things for others because in the end it means you are doing something good for yourself.
Love your mum (or “mom”) even when you are a teenager.
When life gets tough, and it may…remember to breathe in and push your tummy out at the same time.
Speak to people the way you want to be spoken to.
Don’t judge too quickly.
No matter what – we will always love you. Always!
And sometimes…just sometimes…let your mum sing.
