I was walking back from pre-school one day last week with Monkey.  The sun was actually out, we were holding hands and having a lovely little conversation about our shadows.

I suddenly realised just how tall my little man has got, the days of bending to hold his hand are well behind me, he’s actually quite tall for his age. I just looked at him and admired my son, no longer a baby, no longer a toddler, just a lovely little boy, chasing his shadow all the way home.  How did he grow up so fast?

Just  one of life’s simple, #MagicMoments 🙂

    Lovely. It’s strange isn’t it, one day they are a toddler next minute, before you even notice, they are a little boy. Sad but so special at the same time.

    totally feeling like this about my oldest – hes 5 at the end of the week. where has the time gone?? and how did he get so big???

    I know the feeling. Sometimes I look at my little man, and get all emotional, that he’s not a baby anymore. The way he talks to me or tries to argue his case, you’d think he is a teenager already.

  4. I am noticing this with my youngest who is 2, sometimes I just catch a glimpse of him and wonder where the baby has gone too. They grow so very quickly don’t they. Hopping over from Magic Moments 🙂

    This has made me think, I forgot about the back breaking days! Ethan is past my hip now, wow when did that happen!

  6. Lovely moment. We spend so much time looking forward to them growing up and then suddenly they do and we want to freeze it to take it all in. 🙂 x

    A beautiful moment, might have just had a little tear as I have actually written about The Boy starting school and I’d love those days you’ve mentioned back again.

    I love those moments where you just pause and appreciate. Children are such a wonderful gift… even though we get frustrated and impatient with them so often. Its good to appreciate these precious moments! Cx
