#Blogtober18 Day 25 : Years Gone By
Today for Day 25 of #Blogtober18 we are talking Years Gone By… there is no better (or scarier) way as a parent to realise just how quick the years are going by, than looking at pictures of your child from each birthday!
Looking at my kids pictures today really has made me realise just how quickly the years are going by, they are growing up so so quickly, they don’t need to be so dependant on me anymore and pretty soon I’m sure they wont need me at all. In the coming couple of years Lewis will be starting Secondary School and then disappearing off out with friends in an evening, whilst Leah will be beginning her journey at Junior School and hopefully starting her own footsteps into the world of Archery.
Here is a glimpse of how my years have gone by.
Lewis Aged Birth to 9 Years
Next June Lewis will turn 10 years old, these past 10 years have gone so fast. I remember him being born, a baby, a toddler and a young boy starting out in reception class at school, now he’s in year 5! As a young boy I spent a lot of time thinking about his future, dreading the thought of him turning 2, then 5 and now we’re nearly up to 10! The years are just flashing by, the boy who turned me into a Mummy, the boy who’s taught me everything I know about parenthood and being an actual adult. He’s been an amazing young boy, and an even more amazing young man, long may it continue.
Leah Aged Birth to 6 Years
Leah was the child that turned all our peace and easy parenting upside down, but I wouldn’t have her any other way. As a family of 3 before her arrival we enjoyed our food, our weird and wonderful meals, Lewis was never afraid to try anything new. But from birth Leah really has a dislike to food, if it ain’t “white” she pretty much won’t eat it, this has brought about a huge change to the way we eat. But all that said, she’s an amazing and thriving young woman, she’s strong willed and very opinionated. I’m confident she will go far in her adult life and not let anyone push her about.
