From Newborn to Little Boy in Three Years -How Time Flies.

Posted on: October 8, 2012

When you push your tiny newborn baby in the pram you think that they are going to stay like that for ever, other mothers tell you to enjoy this time because it passes so quickly – you just want them to grow up a bit so you can get a good nights sleep.

When you go to toddler groups and all of the other children are toddling about you worry that your little one isn’t reaching the mile stones quick enough, those in the know will tell you that they will do it in their own time – you just want them to toddle like the other children.

When you hear other children saying ‘Mummy’ all you want to hear is that magical word, again your mother says that once they start saying it they will whine your name and you will tire of it – but all you want is to hear that magic word.

When you send them to nursery you look forward to having time to pursue your own interests, you are told that you will miss them – you just want a break.

When you leave your child in nursery for the first time and they don’t cry or cling on to you everyone says that is good – deep down you know it is but every day they go to nursery the little baby is being replaced by an individual with their own thoughts and opinions and suddenly you feel redundant for the first time in three and a half years.

I have decided now to not worry about how quickly my son achieves his mile stones now – I am just going to cherish this magical time of watching my son develop grow to be the person he is meant to be.
