These Two // On the Passing of Time

I found this picture in my blog archive the other day... it was a post I never wrote. And it made my heart do little flips and feel a bit heavy. Because, honestly? This feels like yesterday. Only its not... because the toddler and the baby in that photo are now a schoolgirl and a toddler, and are swiftly growing up far too quickly for my liking!

I've been feeling it a lot lately - the passing of time -
and feeling like each month, each year races by with increasing speed. The toddler years are tough and intensive and emotionally charged, but I somehow had the sense of being "the one in charge" (at least most of the time!), but childhood seems to begin the lengthy process  of handing over independence. Of being ready to hand over the reigns, one small bit at a time. These little years are so very precious. And I know, though I often feel run-ragged, exhausted and emotionally drained... I will look back and wish I had appreciated them more. Wish I had somehow made the most of them.

Savouring the long days of these all too short years.


  1. It's a good reminder not to wish the "testing three year old" years away ....and try and treasure the gems among the challenges

  2. I love this photo so much! It speaks volumes!!! The way they look at each other warm my heart! x

  3. It's gone in the blink of an eye-lid isn't it? Lucky you get to do it all over again. I can't believe my youngest are 10 this year and my baby days are over! Mich x
