From baby to school boy #PowerOfSoft

With Monkey having started school last week I’ve spent a lot of time recently reminiscing. Reminding myself of all the cuddles we’ve had since he was born in December 2009. From baby to school boy we have started and ended each day with a cuddle, and an ‘I love you’. These are treasured moments.

As regular readers know, Monkey didn’t have the easiest of arrivals into this world and I didn’t get my first proper cuddle with him until the day after he was born.

I’d waiting from 4pm on Thursday until the following morning to have the first proper cuddle with my son, the first of the many cuddles we would have from baby to school boy. Here he was, my little boy, in my arms, where he belonged.  I will never forget that first cuddle.

After Monkey had been allowed home we visited his Auntie and Uncle and had our first family photo together – our first recorded family cuddle.

We all look a bit shell-shocked in this photo, we may not have been getting much sleep, but we were getting lots of cuddles.  A precious son to make us a family.  A moment to treasure.

There have been so many celebrations from baby to school boy – so many cuddles along the way.  From a Christening ……

to a first birthday …..

I’ve introduced Monkey to motor racing and we’ve shared cuddles at Silverstone too.

I can’t imagine life without Monkey cuddles; from baby to school boy.

Monkey might have started school last week, but I hope we have many more cuddles to come.

Fairy Non Bio has been with us through every cuddle moment we’ve had.  It’s been my washing powder of choice since Monkey was born.

Fairy Non Bio is proud to have seen millions of parents through every babygro, every toddler’s favourite party dress and then, all too soon, that first school uniform. So we understand how quickly this time passes and therefore the value of every precious cuddle.

Fairy Non Bio recently asked Mums of school children what they missed most about the time before their children started school 25% said it was those super soft kisses and cuddles.  I can totally relate to that right now, I start to come to terms with the fact Monkey is at school full time.  I told one of my friends this week to make the most of every cuddle with her soon to be 1-year-old son.  Before you know it he will have changed from baby to school boy.

Enjoy your cuddle time is my advice today.
