One minute you’re rocking them in your arms, the next you’re taking photos like this

cricketer‘They’ say you should enjoy every minute of your kids because it goes by so very very fast.
‘They’ say that in the blink of an eye your baby goes from crawling, to walking to school to sobbing over their first break up.

Dan is 12 now, elbowing 13.
I remember the day he crawled, wearing a Superman T-shirt and the biggest smile on his face like he was utterly overwhelmed with himself for being so damn clever.
I remember his first day at school and how he wore shorts because it was still so hot that September and his little sister was bereft the whole day because she missed him so much.
I remember his first sleepover, when his first tooth fell out, his first rugby match.

I blinked and now he’s almost a teenager.
The top of his head reaches the bridge of my nose.
We talk about exams and the news and feelings.

This is just a warning, a gentle nudge, a note to say beware; ‘they’ were right.

  3. What a great shot! And it made me tear up a bit – my little one is only 4 months old but I already can’t believe he’s 4 months old! Time flies!!

  4. It’s the full gear that gives him such stature. Very impressive.

  5. Yes, ‘they’ are right aren’t they. I look at my 8 (soon to be 9) year old and it feels like just moments ago she was toddling unsteadily across the park. Now she’s more likely to be telling me how much more she knows than I do! That’s a lovely photo too.
