My youngest son; my baby, turned 10 this week. He, obviously, was chuffed to bits that he’s reached the ‘double figures’ of his life. Me, however, was left a little saddened.
It’s an end of an era. Gone is him trying to sit on my lap, although my lap will be grateful – he is getting a little heavy! Gone is him following me everywhere I go, although I’ll finally be able to see my own shadow again! Gone is the walking down the road hand in hand, he has permitted me to hook my hand in his arm though – that’s still cool-ish according to him.
But I’ve made myself very clear to all 3 of my boys that there’s one thing I never expect to be gone – the hugs and the kisses. I need a hug & kiss every morning and every night without fail, I’m not budging on that!
I do wish time would slow down. In a blink of an eye my children have grown up and I’ve got old! I need to stop blinking. I feel as if the next time I do, my children will be flying my nest…
At least I’ve got the millions of photo’s I take to look back on. Here’s some birthday celebration, Snapchat shots of me and the birthday boy:
On another note…. It’s been a good couple of weeks. I’ve managed to stick to my month’s targets. My sleep routine is improving, I was absolutely shattered come Sunday so I did have a lie in but felt better for it! Healthy eating is going down well, minus the birthday cake but that was a necessity, didn’t want to offend my son! I’ve managed to stick to my 12,000 weekday steps target but I really need to look at walking more at the weekends.
