The day, that magical day when you first laid eyes on your Little One. And now when he is not little, when he can understand that emotion - even if just a little, do let him know, how much he has meant to you since that moment.

The Day I first laid my eyes on you,

My throat constricted with emotion,

I felt blessed and happy and ecstatic,

All appeared afresh like drops of dew,

That magical moment and since then,

I’ve always loved and cherished You.

They say, time which flies away, time which doesn't make you

All too aware while passing, is actually the best time of all…

We've been quite engaged being at our little prince’s beck and call.

Happy Birthday to our Prince

Funny Birthday Wishes for Son

Sometimes, a touch of humour is great for writing a memorable birthday message for your beloved Son. Remember, improving his sense of humor is also a responsibility you carry as a parent. :P


Guys are fascinated with cartoons or superheroes at some point of their life. Use your son’s favourite cartoon to make him smile on his birthday.

There was a time when you were confused, whether you loved me more or Doremon (change this with your son’s favourite cartoon) I hope you're not confused anymore, and off course I love you, then now and always. Happy Birthday Son.


If your son is matured enough, he is ready to take some of innocent jibes about his troublesome toddler self. Go back to that stage when he seemed as costly as he was priceless, and you will come up with something like this:

I was always told babies are priceless. When I had you, I realized, that meant costly too. While you cost me my full night’s sleep with your tantrums as baby, my relaxed state of mind as troublesome toddler, my perfect schedule with your hopeless sleeping routine and so much more… each time you smile, I get a reminder - you’re worth all of the above and more. Love you son, Happy Birthday.

Not too meaningful, funny rhymes are always fun. If your son is a practical person, he might not be fond of “sappy” messages, and since “sappy” rhymes with happy, you take a pick of your own rhyming words, and there you go:

It’s you birthday card, I don’t wanna be sappy,

I know that this stuff makes you quite scrappy,

So I chose Rhymes, they are always snappy,

I wish on his Birthday my Son is very happy!!


Birthday Wishes from Proud Parents - Poems for Appreciating Your Son

Any parents would feel blessed if they have a mature child who is capable of taking good decisions, making choices with intellect. So go ahead, and express your relief and appreciation in your Son’s Birthday Message.

They say aging is a compulsion, growing up is not,

But with you, growing up has happened quite a lot,

We're so glad you're mature enough for your age,

That you'll take decisions after turning every page,

Your foresight and intellect stands second to none,

We wish you succeed always, Happy Birthday Son.

If your son always has always made you proud, what better day would it be to express that? His birthday is the best time to say you don't just love him, you admire him and feel overjoyed to be proud parents of this wonderful young man.

It’s your special day son, and I want to say it loud,

You make us feel blessed, so happy and proud,

You think and do lot better than I could at your age,

That you’ll be an all rounder, I can anytime gage!

Enjoy a lot on your birthday and enjoy your life,

Wishing you success & satisfaction always & rife!!

Happy B’day Son!!


So, Use These Well

I’m a Harry Potter Fan, and although these messages are nothing like the Invisibility Cloak, I would still like you to use them well. :D As I said in the beginning, personalize these messages to best suit your son’s personality, and your relationship with him. Last but not the least, a very Happy Birthday to Your Son.
