How Time Flys


In just two days time my little boy will be turning 3! It's quite amazing. Since having a child I have become one of those tiresome people who constantly finds myself saying to child-less folk how ''you think time flys for you now! It goes sooooo much quicker once you have children!'' and although it may well be annoying and patronising to hear, it really is true!

I recently looked through the photo's on my laptop from 2011 and rediscovered a number of videos of Milo from just a year ago and it is unbelieveable how far he's come in the last year. Back then his communication ability was pretty much limited to gurgles and splutters, he'd often tumble over and he looked so tiny and baby-like even though, had you asked me about him at the time, I would have said how grown up he seemed!

My family will be arriving this morning to spend the week with us and very excitingly, tomorrow we'll be heading to Ikea to buy Milo his ''big boy bed'' as I keep calling it. I keep reminding him that he'll be changing beds this week so that he'll be prepared (he's only ever known his current one) and this morning as I was taking him to nursery, I asked him ''are you looking forward to your new big boy bed?'' and he said ''YAY BIG BOY BED'' so I'm taking that as a yes, although I've no idea if he really understands what I'm talking about?! We'll see when it gets delivered tomorrow.

Right, I better get off to finish cleaning and tidying the apartment before my parents and aunt turn up!

  2. Yeah, it really zips by, doesn't it?

    I always suspected that Milo and my daughter, Nora, were close in age, but I didn't realize it was that close. Milo's ten days older.

    We, too, have that doubt as to whether or not the concept we are expressing was really understood, since she's so good at giving what would be the correct answer. Congrats on being the proud parent of a Big Boy!

    1. Wow, they really are close in age. All the best to Nora for 10 days time and congratulations to you and your partner for surviving 3 years of parenthood!

    Yes, time is flying and soon it will be too late for me to have children of my own :-( Will just have to spoil all my friend's kids even more!

  4. He sure is! You still have lots of time to have kids. Never say never! My son's Aunt who thought she'd never have children, had a child (without help and healthily) last year at age 41!
