Maybe, they got their first phone as their b-day present? If so, they’ll be overjoyed to get a message. Are you stumped on what to say? No worries! Take a look through this collection of messages for that special girl, boy, son, daughter, grandson, or granddaughter that’s another year older today.

  • I only have one 10-year-old son, and boy am I glad it’s you! You make everyday a celebration, but today is about you turning the page of life to double digits. I couldn’t be prouder, happier, or honored to be your parent, and I hope today is the best day yet for you.
  • I may not be the perfect parent, but I certainly have a perfect son. And, a perfect son deserves nothing less than a perfect birthday. Let’s start now with 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 virtual hugs!
  • Son, may every dream and hope you have come true as you blow out your 10th set of birthday candles. You make me the happiest, and I want nothing but the same for you today and every day.
  • Three letters sum up my entire world: S-O-N. Love and best wishes for an amazing celebration of 10 years doing a fantastic job at being my S-O-N.


For My Daughter

If your daughter is on her 10th birthday, try one of these lovely wishes:

  • You’ve wrapped up your first decade with a lot of sweet memories under your belt. Just remember that turning 10 doesn’t mean you can add a miniskirt to that belt, young lady. I love you times infinity.
  • A lot of girls think that turning TEN makes them T- terrific, E- exciting, and N- novel. You, dear daughter, have long since been all of the above. So, sit back and enjoy already mastering the tens!
  • Wow, you look very well-aged to have turned 120 months old today! Maybe, we should just stick with 10 birthday candles, though? I love you, my old girl, and wish you the very best of all today brings.
  • Welcome to becoming a ten-ager. Use the time wisely because it won’t be long until you’re a real teenager and will be too old for a birthday advice message from the parents.

Happy Birthday. Warmest wishes on your special day.
  • Hope reaching that 10-year milestone is unforgettable – just like you! Much love, cake, ice cream, cookies, soda, chips, gifts, future college funds, and delight for today. Note that future college funds and love apply all day, everyday.
  • No longer a kid. Not quite a teen. Don’t stay in yesterday, but don’t rush tomorrow. Be you because you are simply perfect just as you are today. I, however, will continue to love you yesterday, today, and tomorrow – the perks of being an adult. Happy 10th fabulous birthday.
  • Just yesterday, you were a cool chick. Today, with double digits on your birthday, I guess that makes you a double cool chick? Hope you have the coolest birthday around.
  • To the dearest sweetest daughter, you’ve infused my life with complete happiness every single day for the past 10 years. You most certainly deserve some of that happiness for yourself. So take this day, your birthday, and enjoy it to the fullest with cake, love, and many gifts.

For My Granddaughter

  • Congrats on reaching official big girl status. Hope you’re not too old for a birthday message from the grandparents: Happiest Wishes To You On Your Big Day!
  • As you embark on no longer being nine, know that you will always be my sweet little grandchild. No matter if it’s your 10th or 100th in age, I want each of your birthdays to always be a day to remember and as bright and brilliant as you are to me.
  • You’re destined for greatness, granddaughter of mine. Each of your birthdays are a gift to me and the entire world. Here’s to your first 10 years, and I’m so excited to see what the next ten hold.
