when your oldest child turns 40.
That happened yesterday - Tim is now in his 5th decade.
David and I clearly remember the day of Tim's birth, back in Wanganui on 29 October, 1975 at 3.22pm. There are many things and events we have forgotten since that day, but that day is etched in our memories as the start of being parents and all the love, laughter and care that goes into the role.
Tim lives in Scotland, so it is still his birthday there - happy birthday, dear son. You are such a special person to us.
