Summer's 2nd Birthday

Yesterday my youngest baby turned 2 years old and it's been a bit of a roller coaster of emotions for me, on the one hand it's great to see her growing and becoming such a funny and mischievous little character but on the other hand she's not a baby anymore, I now officially have 2 young children and no babies and that makes me feel a bit sad.

Summer starts preschool in a couple of weeks, just for 2 mornings a week but it's the beginning of her school life and I'm looking forward to it and dreading it all at the same time. I can't wait to have 2 whole mornings a week to myself, it's amazing how much I can get done in a few hours when I have no kids to look after but I'm not looking forward to handing over a very clingy, screaming toddler to someone while I run out of the door fighting back the tears myself, I did it with my son and it was tough so I know what I'm in for but I also know it's for the best for both of us.

The older the kids get, the more independent they get and the more I want them to go back to being babies again. Riley turns 5 this year which he's very excited about, he talks about it all the time and the last time he mentioned it I said "don't grow up too quickly though will you" and he replied with something that brought a tear to my eye, he said "don't worry Mum, when I'm 5 I'll still be your baby, when I'm 6 I'll still be your baby, when I'm 7 I'll still be your baby, I'll always be your baby" and he's right they'll always be my babies no matter how old they are.



  1. Aww! Bless her! What a pretty princess you have!
    Looks like she had a lovely party x

  2. Gosh I know how you feel, My son was two a couple of weeks ago and I was so emotional more so than his first Birthday. Summer looks so cute as a little Princess, I hope you all had a lovely day!

  3. Aw so cute! Sienna is loving Sofia at the moment too! xx

  4. Oh my gosh that is the sweetest thing for Riley to say *sobs* Hes right though, Summer might be two but shes still your baby...they both always will be.

    They are both soooo adorable! xx

  5. It's so bittersweet when we celebrate their birthdays isn't it, My youngest starts school this year and already I have no idea what I'll do with myself all day on my own x
