When I grow up........
I can vividly remember as a child thinking how slow time went and the summer holidays were "forever", we would spend most of our days out in the sunshine, at the park and exploring the woods as I got older with my friends. How times have changed I now find myself begging time to slow down as my not so little Miss M is too quickly approaching Year 1 at infant school, where the real schooling begins. I cant help feel for the poor little ones as they now journey from the very relaxed and play initiated style of learning to the more conventional and formal learning and wonder what there thoughts are. Little Miss M is quite relaxed at the moment and is not to fazed by it, although she would love to keep her current teacher forever as she has had quite an impact on her so much so she would now like to be a teacher.
I can remember my parents and friends who have older children telling me to make the most of the time you have with your children when they are young, and me thinking at the time what are they talking about I have got ages. How wrong was I.... it has gone unbelievably quick from teething to tantrums to all grown up knowing "everything"!. On the other hand I can look through the thousands of photographs I have of both my little monkeys and think look at what we have given them so far, confidence, time, life experiences, unconditional love, stability and so much more that I would be waffling forever to tell you all, these are the most precious gifts any parent can give their children .
Hope you all have a lovely Fathers Day weekend and spoil Daddy's everywhere.
As I know my our little ones are with Hand made cards from each of them, gifts and home made cakes too.
