Jasper is 10 today. It’s such a cliche but I really can’t quite believe it. When we discovered I was pregnant with him I’d just returned to a full-time salaried job in a government department. I’d also just enrolled in my Masters of Creative Writing at UTS.
It was such a surprise but we were all so excited about a new baby. The big boys were both at school, Oscar in Year 1, Felix in Kindy and we thought we were done, but Jasper decided otherwise.
He was the most happy, joyous contented baby in the world. We indeed called him Jasper, the happiest baby in the world!, just like paprika in Bachelor Party.
He’s always been such a reflective little soul, emotional, thoughtful, loving, loyal and deeply empathetic.
Isn’t he delightful.
