Day 113 – Time Flies

 

It seems like only yesterday that it was all about Thomas The Tank Engine and now he is the same height as me…

Day 77 – Super Mum

 

Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK and I was thoroughly indulged. Being a parent is without doubt the hardest thing I have ever done. It is exhausting, emotionally draining and relentless and no one can really explain that to you until you actually do it for yourself. You think they are needy when they are tiny babies but only recently have I come to realise that those where in fact the easy days, it is now as we approach the teenage years that those baby days seem to be a walk in the park in comparison to this mine field. One moment we have monster child and the next, he is back to being my little boy, laying across the end of my bed as he watches me open my cards.

Day 48 – Growing Up

 

I wonder why sometimes he seems so grown up and then at other times so immature

I wonder why sometimes he can be so sweet and nice and other times a total monster

I wonder if he will still be addicted to his tracksuit bottoms and his scooter when he is 30
