# Another trip round the sun for our eldest daughter - it just seems mad that I have a "child" who is 22!

I remember being that age. I do, honest. I also vividly remember when Amy was born, the struggle my wife experienced because she suffered an M.E. relapse during childbirth and that Amy was almost blue because her airways were blocked and required suction.

I remember that the relapse left my wife unable to function so I had to do the first feeds and the first baths and it took a while for her to feel like a mum because she was out of it for so long.

Crazy times.

    loved the formulation you used here to describe that another year has passed. I never fought about it from this perspective. But getting older is a journey - one around the sun.
