I was walking back from pre-school one day last week with Monkey.Β  The sun was actually out, we were holding hands and having a lovely little conversation about our shadows.

I suddenly realised just how tall my little man has got, the days of bending to hold his hand are well behind me, he’s actually quite tall for his age. I just looked at him and admired my son, no longer a baby, no longer a toddler, just a lovely little boy, chasing his shadow all the way home.Β  How did he grow up so fast?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. I know the feeling. Sometimes I look at my little man, and get all emotional, that he’s not a baby anymore. The way he talks to me or tries to argue his case, you’d think he is a teenager already.

  2. I am noticing this with my youngest who is 2, sometimes I just catch a glimpse of him and wonder where the baby has gone too. They grow so very quickly don’t they. Hopping over from Magic Moments πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely moment. We spend so much time looking forward to them growing up and then suddenly they do and we want to freeze it to take it all in. πŸ™‚ x

  4. I love those moments where you just pause and appreciate. Children are such a wonderful gift… even though we get frustrated and impatient with them so often. Its good to appreciate these precious moments! Cx

  5. A beautiful moment, might have just had a little tear as I have actually written about The Boy starting school and I’d love those days you’ve mentioned back again.
