A child’s 10th birthday is kind of a big deal. It signifies the first decade of a child’s life, so some big celebration is to be expected.
This also means that the child is getting out of that little kid stage and entering the next phase, which is the pre-teen years.
It will be an exciting time both for the birthday celebrant and the parents. So many exciting changes are to be expected. Along with these changes will be different sets of challenges that only parents of preteen kids would understand!
If you wish to greet someone a happy 10th birthday, here are some great examples of birthday greetings, messages, and wishes that can help express what you want to say.
Feel free to change it up a bit so that it will be more special and more personalized!

Happy 10th Birthday from Mom
You may be ten years old now, but for me, you will always be my little baby boy. I know I’m still in denial because you’re growing up faster than I’m ready for. But you really can’t blame me if I will always see you as the cute baby you once were. That’s only natural for mothers like me. I will love you forever. Happy 10th birthday, sweetie!
I thought the day that I found out I was carrying you in my belly was the happiest day of my life. That happiness was nowhere near the happiness I felt when I finally gave birth to you. You always make me happy. Yes, you can also annoy and infuriate me, but you mostly make me happy. I’m so thankful for that. Always stay sweet, kind, and brave. I love you so much! Happy 10th birthday!
I just want you to know that I’m very proud to be your mom. It’s what fuels me every day, and it’s what takes away the stresses of the day. I love coming home and seeing you after a whole day of missing you. I pray that we will remain this close forever. I love you, little one. Happy 10th birthday!
I know that you’ve just turned ten years old, but I can’t help feeling a little sentimental. In just a few years you will be living your own life. You will be moving out of the family home and falling in love with someone you will marry one day. Today, I will just focus on you being ten years old and worry about all that later. I hope you have the best day. Love you! Happy 10th birthday!
If only I could stop time and just enjoy this moment much longer with you. Ten years just flew by in a blur. I hope that it was a fun ten years for you, filled with memorable moments and great experiences. Always remember that I will be here for you to love you and take care of you no matter how old you get. I love you! Happy 10th birthday!
Please don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. I’m only just starting to enjoy having a 9-year-old, and then here you are, suddenly a 10-year-old! I know that sometimes I don’t get to spend time with you because of the demands of my job. I’m sorry if Mommy’s busy all the time. But you know why I’m doing it, right? It’s all for you and your future. I promise that I will spend more time with you. I realized that I don’t want to miss out on your growing up years anymore. I love you so much! Happy 10th birthday!
Happy 10thbirthday to our little princess. I hope that you enjoy everything that we prepared for you today. I know how much you love ponies and farm animals now, so we hope that this animal farm theme party will make you dizzy with joy. Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter to us. You make us so proud to be your parents. I love you, sweetie. Have a fun 10thbirthday!
