As your children grow up and move on to the next stages in their lives, you forget stuff.
Like their first words, things they liked, their quirks, their funny moments, the time they were sick on you, the time they removed a whole shelf of food on to the floor in the middle of a supermarket shop; the things that make them them.
This blog was always meant to be a place so that didn’t happen for me. I want to remember the silly things they said, the embarrassing moments, the soaring highs, the crippling lows.

I can’t wait to find out.
For anyone searching, there is no Gallery today.
I’m taking the half term break off to be with the kids and to immerse myself in playing/watching DVDs/walking/moaning about the inevitably bad weather.
There will be a new theme on May 31, so come back and have a shuftie then!
In the meantime you can have a bit of me all to yourself by subscribing to Sticky Fingers to make sure you don’t miss any prompts.
