well it is officially SUMMER!!
this means lots of fun in the sun and no more early mornings, no more packed lunches, no more school ties ... well for 6 weeks anyway!
We have had Joshua with us since Tuesday, it has been great fun but having them both is full on; Ethan is going on a wee holiday with his Daddy tonight and Joshua is going to his Nana's tonight so I will have a much-needed few days peace until I get them both back.
Then Ethan is 6 (!!!!!) on Wednesday, with 2 wobbly teeth and his first year at school finished he is growing up fast, so fast ... to fast.... please slow down a little Grandfather time!
Yesterday when I was out with Joshua in the buggy I looked down at him playing with Woddy .. and for an instant I thought it was a toddler Ethan. In that instant all these emotions flooded through me; happiness, sadness, joy, wonder.
Memories, memories, memories.
His sweet little fat hands touching my face, his soft wispy hair, the smell of his head after he has woken from a nap. It is so hard to think that those days have gone, my little babbling Ethan, toddling along in his nappy, dragging monkey by the arm.
My sweet boy!
But he is growing into such a smart, sweet, loving, helpful, considerate beautiful boy. I can't complain, but every now and then I will look back and remember!
This summer is going to be great fun, quality time with my family. Creating so many more happy memories!
Right, I can hear the boys stirring..
