I have said for the longest time I’ve wanted to get back into writing about us as a family more. But sometimes priories get shifted and things get put on the back burner unfortunately. I started blogging to capture all kinds of memories of my little caterpillar and if memory serves me right when Hayden reached the age of 1 and a half I put the personal blogging to the background and I really wish I didn’t.
Now this is the perfect opportunity to get back into the swing of pouring out my heart monthly (As if) but expressing my feeling about life as a first time mum to a nearly 3-year-old. I still can’t believe I get to say that. This little guy brightens up even the darkest of day days, I can’t lie though there aren’t many dark days. I’m truly grateful to have this hyper little dude in my life forever and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Hayden’s doing really well at school he’s in a classroom with other 2 year olds but because he’s going to be 3 next month, after the Easter break he’ll be having settling in sessions in the 3-5 year old room which I have mixed emotions about. I feel like it was only a few weeks ago he started in his new class and now he’s really comfortable, he even has best friends he talks about everyday Nathan, David and Layla. I will feel so bad that he’ll have to start all over again – But I guess that’s the point of growing up and maybe I’m totally over reacting. For all I know he’ll be fine and lap up all the new attention. I guess you guys will find out next month.
Lately I’ve felt that our relationship as mother and son has become even stronger which I didn’t even think that was possible. Every morning without fail “Oh mummy you are bootiful, I love you” it totally melts my heart. Movie nights have become sophisticated … we’ve taken Disney to another level. Hayden’s new favourite is the 2003 remake of Peter Pan which is pretty darn impressive if I do say so myself. He sat through the movie and said it was a “good one”. If I ask him who his favourite princesses are (bar mummy of course) he loves Merida, Tiana and Rapunzel – To me that just speaks so many levels.
We’ve even taken up swimming together at our local leisure centre which I’ve been dying to do since he was born. He’s swam in the Caribbean sea twice and a swimming pool when we went to Camber Sands and Bluestone Wales but not any swimming close to home. I’m so crap sometimes when it comes to getting out and doing things, my anxiety goes sky-high so I’d rather avoid anything of the sort. Lately the only thing on my mind is YOLO, no serious! Its true – am I really going to let some stupid chemical imbalance in my brain rule my life where I miss out on having fun with my child eh nah! It’s totally easier said then done but I’m getting there.
I hardly take photos of myself as it is but I really need to make sure I get more of me and my little man. I’m always stuck behind a camera when it comes to photos. We now have 3 selfie sticks that we own (yep, no typo 100% legit) so I really don’t have an excuse apart from now just need good make up to hide all my imperfections, as you do.
I will end off saying I don’t usually take part in Linky’s as great as I think they are I’m scared of commitment and hate when I can’t stick to my word. But I know this is a linky like no other because it was thought up by one of my best friends, Nicola Life Through My Eyes and I will support her in anything she needs (within reason of course lol) So I’m linking up my very first mummy and me post, thank you for creating this sugar tits!
Until Next Time… Charlotte x
