Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and find they were the big things!
One of my favourite quotes! It's been in my head a lot this past week, I've been forced to realise just how quickly time is passing and how quickly our babies are growing up. Particularly, my littlest baby!! Just going from milestone to milestone, from one first to the next. It seems like no time ago at all that we were taking him home from hospital and having his first night at home, first bath, meeting family for the first time!
In the past week alone we have had HP'S first night in his own room, his first tooth and he has rolled over for the first time!! Understandably, a little much for any mother to take! While, I love to see him doing so well and achieving all these little goals, ultimately it means he his growing up and a little to fast for my liking.
Just look at that cheeky little face, devouring the strawberries!
Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to slow time down, so I have came to the conclusion that all we can do is try our best to live in the moment, and truly experience out lives as they are happening. This is no easy feat, most of the time I'm so caught up with the daily routine of cleaning, cooking, feeding, school runs etc. to truly enjoy the little things. So this summer the plan is to take life at a slower pace and enjoy as many moments as I can, and hopefully give the illusion that time is going even just a little bit slower.
All of this philosophical thinking brings to mind another wee poem that I like very much and should really try to live by, so I will leave u with that!
I hope my children look back on today
and see a mum who had time to play!
There will be years for cleaning and cooking,
but children grow up while were not looking!
