You just lost the game. Sorry.
Anyway, it’s all change here as E seems to have grown up loads over night.
She’s always been a very young toddler. I’ve never hurried anything along and always gone with the flow, saying ‘she’ll tell me when she’s ready’ to anyone who challenged our methods. I was right, she told me. Turns out I wasn’t so ready.
There’s a poem that went viral recently on social media about some moments being your last and you never really knowing when it would be your last and that’s resonated with me so much this evening. This morning, I scooped E out of her cot and carried her downstairs. I didn’t think for one second that it would be the last time I did that and if I had known I would have cherished it, I’d have mentally filmed it and locked it away safe.
Anyway, I’ve had my cry and now I feel proud. Proud I am raising such a fun, kind, feisty & independent young girl.
I’m excited to blog the next chapter of our lives together too. I know it’s been a bit slow of late but we have been busy, busy, busy! 3 weddings, 1 christening, 2 parties and a theatre show in 3 weeks. I’ll fill you in soon, I promise.
For now though I’m going to bed, after an emtional mum day.
