Kids, They Just Don't Give A Damn


One minute they're a wee little bean in your belly. A kick under your ribs. A kitten meow, then a wah in the darkness. Three hourly feeds, a part of you. Next thing they're wedging their hands, legs, anything under your body in the middle of the night. And then they're off. Not babies anymore. It all just seems so unfair that it happens so darn quickly.

I know! Sometimes I wonder where my little baby went..... Thank you for reminding me to savor the moment.

It's so true, I can't believe my Miss M is 11 months old, it seems like yesterday - those 3 hour feeds day and night!
