I’ve seem it for a little while and I’ve been dreading this moment from the moment he was born.

When Mr S was born, I knew I couldn’t have anymore. A mutual agreement that my partner and I had made just before he was born. Personally, I could have many more babies but as a family on a budget and with 5 people in the family to provide for now and in the future, we didn’t want to find ourselves in over our heads in debt.

Today the mattress we brought our youngest arrived today and I brought him a potty :( It seems that he has grown up all too quickly. Well before I was ever ready.

At almost 2, he seems all too familiar to kinder and school. Though a careful little boy, he definitely asserts himself around other children, regardless of their age. He will certainly be a confident little man when he goes off to kinder and school :)

I just want my last little monkey to stay little for just a tiny bit longer. Please, slow down time or maybe stop it for a bit

  • yes bittersweet is exactly right. they grow up way to fast for me


  • The bittersweet passing of time….


  • enjoy them while there young …


  • They definitely grow up way to fast :( Our youngest is 2.5 and it seems they are so grown up, in a heartbeat. I keep reminding myself to concentrate on enjoying him rather than worrying about how old he is, it’s so hard though!
