Not so Happy Birthday...

*warning...tissues may be required*

This weeks prompt for 
A Dash of Sunny

Personally I love my solitude...
I would be quite happy sitting alone on a hill top
 til I starved or froze to death.

But those with more troubled minds can spiral into darkness
and depression if left to their own devices for too long.
Now I am no "expert" in such matters...
but I do have a child with  such issues...
especially on days like today.

It's his Birthday...
he should be the centre of attention, but he can't cope.
So I will tread carefully and eat cake
(and bake a pumpkin pie which he always says he likes)


*sings* "Happy Birthday to You!..."

"Happy Birthday toooo You!"

*says quietly* "happy birthday dear Zaaaa.....aaaac..."
"Shut UP!"

*whispers* "happy birthday to you....."

Well I'm still glad you were born!

Cos 5 minutes later...


The joys of motherhood come at a price
which I gladly pay daily.


  1. Happy Birthing day to you dear Gina. You're a great mom to not only know all of these things about your boy but live all these things as well. Not always easy but always a must with our specially designed loved ones. xoxo Oma Linda
    whispers....Happy Birthday Zack

  4. Awwww!!πŸ’–πŸ’–this is such a beautifully tender and emotive write, Gina. I agree, solitude certainly does not prove to be very fruitful as those with "troubled minds can spiral into darkness and depression."

    Nevertheless, you are an incredible person and a loving mother to Zack. Wishing him a very happy birthday πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ and loads of love and best wishes. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support πŸ’–πŸ’–

    Lots of love,
