Happy Birthday!
It's Parent24's first birthday, a time for fun and cake. See how our bloggers celebrate with their kids.
Celebrating a birthday is a wonderful thing, more so when it’s your child. You not only get to celebrate the life that you helped create but also the little person who graces your life with more ups than downs.

Here’s what some of our bloggers have to say:

"I can't believe that it was a year ago that I held in my arms for the very first time. I lay awake the whole night just staring at the most perfect baby. I thank God everyday that you came into my life. Your smile, your loving and caring nature, your sensitivity, even your stubborness makes me feel like a great mom. You make me want to be a better person and a better mom. Every time you reach a milestone, you fill my heart with joy and tears of happiness. I love the way you make your Daddy so happy and proud. We are truly blessed! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIELA, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL"

"I was quite proud of myself this morning. I managed not to cry and get all emotional about my little boys' 6th birthday! Think I must watch his birth DVD tonight! And remember that day 6 years ago when my little boy entered the world at 7:32am, weighing only 2,56kg's! Life has never been the same since!"

"The big moment has arrived! He finally got to hear everyone singing happy birthday to him and blew out his candles. (He been singing happy birthday to me for months now!)"

"3 years ago today my sweet angel was born. Happy Birthday Miss E! These have been the most amazing 3 years of my life. I look forward to watching you grow and sharing all your ups (and downs) with you."

"Well tomorrow is Miss Muffet's first ever Birthday Party with friends and she is turning 6. It's not that we did not want to give her parties the years before, it's just that we have always either gone somewhere for the day or spend time with the family at a nice venue. But this year, we decided, we will still have the family day, but will also give her a day with her friends."
