Growing Up Too Fast…

5 years ago yesterday I told everyone that I was having a baby. I am sitting here today with that baby sitting next to me, snuggling up close to me, not so little any more.

I sometimes wonder where the last 5 years have gone. The 9 months I carried Moo went reasonably quickly, their was lots going on, and before I knew it she was being placed in my arms. Now in a few months time I will be waving her off at the school gates. We have our moments, but like any 4 year old going on 5 who doesn’t throw the odd paddy now and then?

Yesterday, she gave me a lovely mothers day card which she hand picked herself, those are the best, as to be honest they are so unexpected. She wrote her own name and finally managed to get that certain letter round the right way, which I have been trying to teach her for a while now. She is doing and learning so much more now. She amazes me in what she says and does daily.

Sometimes I wish moments like this would slow down, time does pass too quickly and lately it feels like I am blinking and its flashing away before my eyes!

I am linking this post up with theoliversmadhouse Magic Moments Linky. Pop over to her blog to join in!

    Someone once said to me that we should remember every breath is a celebration. Not always easy, but the more moments we experience as magic the happier we are, and the more we can tackle the hard bits. Loved this, thanks for sharing and I’m really happy to find you via Magic Moments Mx

    It scares me how quickly they grow. I love seeing my girls getting bigger and developing new things, but at the same time it terrifies me that before I know it they’ll fly the nest and leave me! You must be very proud of her, writing her own name x

      Yes very proud indeed 🙂 she managed pretty quickly at play school to trace it but watching a programme the other day she asked to try herself, so since then we have been practising copying her own name. Its made me smile looking at my card to see the name written properly, and she was so chuffed she managed to write that certain letter round the right way!

      Thanks for stopping by x
