at my house...

After a cold weekend completely indoors, the sun is shining, the boys are off to school, hubby's off to work & it's just me & the little guy.  I'm feeling like these days at home with him are suddenly, very quickly coming to an end.  Okay, so I still have another year & a bit, I needn't be so dramatic, but in the scheme of things, of 9 years at home with children, it's nearly over...
So, I'm going to enjoy these sweet moments, where it's just the two of us.  When he runs up from behind me & kisses my back, when he hugs my legs & tells me he loves me as I mop up his spills, when he invites me to tea or a cuddle on the couch, when he tells me my pyjamas look beautiful, that I make a yummy dinner, and my favourite "how about we go get a coffee & go to the op shop", love it!  So, at my house, I'm enjoying treasured moments...

  3. I have 8 days left with my last one before she's off to school all day and I can't believe how this time has gone and my oldest is starting high school I can honestly say I enjoyed every moment with them...and now I'm on to the next chapter in my life it's been 15 years I have always had a little one home with me...I might have lunch with friends, take a nap, work in the store, do some laundry, because before you know it 3:00 will come all too quickly!!

  4. I found myself getting a bit teary reading this post! I feel just the same, the time with the last child is so precious. I love my time with Rosie too and I"m a bit scared about next year to be honest. Like Heidi I think I'll be catching up with myself and hey, she's right, 3.00 comes around so quickly. I keep getting people asking me what I am going to do with all my Spare Time, funny. If only they knew! Have a great day with your sweetie today, xo

  5. What a gorgeous post! After reading that, I think I might just hop off the computer and spend some time with my little cherubs playing at my feet. Thanks for the reminder :)

  7. Such lovely and sweet pictures. I know what you mean. Even I used to panic a lot when little one started school. Even now, though its fun to watch him grow up, its a bit scary for me that its happening so fast. But as you said these are the moments to enjoy.

  14. I know I will look back on the days of little kids with very fond memories but sometimes living the day to day it is hard to remember how good it all is and how much it will be missed. Thanks for the reminder to cherish these moments and appreciate what I have. They are absolutely adorable at this age.

    Thanks for joining in again this week. Lou.

  15. Wow Mel - where have those 9 years gone. It doesn't seem that long at all. I just love, love, love, that first photo. How gorgeous is he. Soak up the moments. I'm doing the same with my little one because I know she's growing up ever so quickly. I just want to freeze time. Trace :)
