For many people, February the 13th is simply a ‘regular’ day – for some it may be a day in which advance preparations are made to acknowledge the celebration of loved ones for Valentine’s Day.
For our family however, and indeed for the Nightmare Nibbler Nation, this day holds a very special place in our hearts…
It was in the wee hours of the morning on the 13th of February in 2002, that a highly anticipated cry pierced the darkness at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.
At that time, Samuel Smith-Lauchlan made his debut, my name switched from Susan to ‘MAMA’ and the lives of myself and my hubby would be changed forever…in all the best ways possible!
This little loving ball of energy…MY little loving ball of energy – would, when he was 4 years old, prove to be the inspiration for the birth of a new nation! Who knew?!
As I’ve shared on our ABOUT US page, Sam’s experiences with nightmares as a younger child initiated the creation of the Nightmare Nibbler character, the land of the Nibblers and in turn the launch of a new business designed to bring comfort to other kids and families as well!
Happy 10th Birthday Sam…the creativity and ingenuity that you are gifted with continually proves to inspire and motivate me…and for that I am truly grateful.
I love you!! xoxoxoxo
