    Default I wish I could keep this moment...

    On Friday 4yo DS ran in his first race at sports carnival day at school (he started kindy this year). He tried so very hard and ran the whole way (to DH and I waiting at the end) with a big smile on his face. He came last!! But he was just so proud of himself. He has no idea what it means to be a 'loser'. He just said to us "I ran SO fast!!".

    I was doing that slightly hysterical crying/laughing thing because it was so damn cute, and at the same time so terribly sad because he won't have that pure innocence much longer. He got a ribbon that said "I ran in a race" and he was just absolutely stoked!! I spent the rest of the day just wishing he could have that same outlook for everything, forever!

    Do you have a moment to share where the terrible fear of your babies growing up just hit you like a sledgehammer?!

    Oh I loved that!!

    My DS (1yr old) saw an iPad for the first time about a month ago. He was lifting the right hand side trying to turn the page.

    That moment will never happen again...

    Great post.

    My DD admires herself in the mirror and thinks that she is so gorgeous (which she really is) and I feel so sad that she may have times when she just can't love herself.

    I have a DD now too, she's only a newborn but I've already thought about this. I also hope we will stay best friends as she grows up, I want so badly to have a great mother daughter relationship with her, as I didn't with my own mum and it still hurts. When I found out we were having a girl it was a funny flood of emotions, I was so happy and excited but also so scared.

    I adore how positive and full of compliments dd1 is.

    As hard as it is to watch because I know what's going on, I'm thankful that she isn't fully aware when other kids are being mean to her... but that's changing

    Both girls still wanting kisses and cuddles before bed.
