They grow up so fast...

It was Rogan’s birthday on Friday. He was 11. My wee baby boy is growing up fast.

For the past several years, ever since I first got a copy of Photoshop to be precise, I’ve ended up creating birthday cards for the various family members on the computer. Last year, for example, I had Rogan captured by Dr Who’s Daleks.

This year I thought it was time for mean and moody. And although we haven’t yet had a chance to see the third film, Rogan is a big X-Men fan so was delighted when he came down in the morning to find this waiting for him on a card on the kitchen table.

Belated Happy Birthday Rogan. Kim the photo is brilliant and Rogan is so handsome and looks so grown up, def not a wee baby boy any more.

Perhaps I should point out that the sideburns are Hugh Jackmans (Wolverine) from the movie poster. I just managed to blend them in.

My 11 year old son does not need to shave yet...

Lookit tha facial hair! I wish I didn't have that much hair when I was a kid.
Ask him about storm. I've always wanted to meet Halle Barry.

Very Cool Kim. Rogan's a good looking boy. I can't believe he's only eleven. Looks like he can walk into a bar and order a pint.

Do I have to mention again that the facial hair is not his? Does nobody read my replies to comments?

Charlie said...

He too is hairy not so much a chip of the old block but a cut of the old mop!
Happy birthday to him buy him some razors.
