A Boy


The other day when I looked at him I saw a boy instead of a babe and a part of me was crushed because I never kissed my baby goodbye.

  1. I know how you feel; my boys are now men - but you still get to hug 'em! Oh and they put their arm round you and look down and call you Titch or Shorty - how cute!

  2. I think I must have lived in the moment when my children were tiny because I don't recall feeling a sense of loss when they moved on to the next stage. I was too absorbed by the needs of each new day to look backwards. Or forwards.

  3. I don't know that I could even begin to count the number of times I have felt the same thing. Sometimes, I can't even remember Ellis as a baby and yet I know he was. When I was newly a mother, I got so tired of people telling me to "enjoy it while it lasts" and "they are only little for such a short time" and now I find myself saying it!!

  4. Like Alice I lived in the moment and never felt any regret as one stage ended and another began. I shall be mightily glad when my daughter's current stage is over.

    Helen you have created a wonderful record of your son's development and every time you read your words and look at your pictures 'the moment' will come back to you.
