A great big SIX #WotW


When our son was born, I had no idea I could be a Mum.  No idea how to be a Mum.  And then I held him, and he was mine.

Little did I know back then the huge impact he would have on every single aspect of my life.  How naive I was to say that my life wouldn't revolve around him.

And now he's turned six.  One third of his time as a young person, gone.  At times it's taken an age, and at times, it's whizzed by in a flash.  The joy, frustration, love, exhaustion, pride and exasperation have all been worth it.  Every single second.  I'm so proud of him, my all grown up baby boy.

Happy birthday, son.

  5. What a lovely post. We are all naive in the beginning because you really don't know until you are a mother. Happy birthday to your son and I hope he had a great day x #WotW
