Last weekend Lil Man turned five. Yes, five. Already.
And I’m still referring to my kids as toddlers. Oops!
I’m mostly in shock at how fast these last few years have gone, pleased that he’s grown into such a gorgeous kid (in loads of different ways) and sad that he is growing up so quick.
In fact, due to OK’s babyweightlossgate I was looking at some pictures of us when he was newborn last week. I hadn’t realised that I’d had so many pictures taken with him as a baby. But really pleased when I found them, wobbly tummy n all! I’m chuffed I look so happy in them as it’s exactly how I remember feeling. Plus, I didn’t have half as many wrinkles!
His first year in school is done and dusted and he’s adjusted to it really well. In fact, he’s loved school and I’m excited for him to get back there with his friends and experience and learn more stuff. I’m so proud of the little person he has become. He’s kind, patient, sweet with his little sister, and very funny. Although when we have conversations like this….
‘That’s not very nice, you know we don’t call people names. What do you have to say to Mummy?’
‘Well….you are a BIT stinky!’
….I do have to try desperately not to snigger!
He had a fab birthday, we decorated his bedroom at his request (superheroes for a super boy). He’s had a new big boy bed, which kinda drowns him. But at least it’ll last a good few years (til he’s a grown up!) Lil miss loves it just as much, hence the two very excited children rolling around!
He had a visit to softplay (yep, that’s what he chose to do out of all the options we gave him!) we had a lovely family meal and I spent forever making him a superhero cake. This one to be exact….
His little face when he saw his bedroom and his cake were absolutely worth getting covered in paint, flour and icing for!
I still can’t believe how fast it’s gone and how quick he’s grown up. Almost makes me want to do it all again. Almost!
