At 20 my life was carefree and chaotic, always looking forward to the next weekend but how little I knew about time till Beth came along when I was 21.
My told me from the moment I discovered I was pregnant that I should treasure every moment as it goes so fast you don’t want to regret missing a minute.
Those first months were so hard being a single Mum after domestic violence, it made me all the more determined to treasure the time with my daughter, it made me want to remember every waking moment with her .. I cherished every second of us being a 2, we had very little money but we only needed us and hugs got us through.
In the blink of an eye my tiny baby has become a beautiful, intelligent young lady with an opinion the size of killer whale and an attitude to match … It only make me all the more proud of what an independent young lady she is becoming … although please don’t tell her I said that … her ego would be unbearable!
Ten years later after declaring I would never have anymore children my heartstrings played a beautiful tune when Joshua arrived … a special little guy that only cemented us all further.
The newborn baby smell and his little face looking into his sister as she sings him a rather revolting song .. teenage style…. of course! The adoring little face that looks up to her and listens so intently.
These moments are so very precious and I am so very glad that I have had such beautiful memories to treasure. We didn’t have the happiest start but my goodness we are certainly making up for it … now if only time would slow down!
We are both still not adamant that our family is complete and this being the case If we are lucky to ever have number 3 … I will be making it my mission to take my foot of the pedal and enjoy every single second of it and stop wishing for the next stage no matter how tiring, hard or tedious the stage is!
Fairy Non Bio have decided to celebrate each and every embrace with the #PowerofSoft with this gorgeous video …. now if we can’t slow down the time, let’s make the most of it while we can!
