So I love to look back at old pictures and photos. I’m also one of the rare few nowadays that still gets them printed (highly recommend FreePrints.). I also really love writing poetry and since I have been working through so much lately I thought using my words with some old photos might bring a nice touch and add to the memories. I thought throwback Thursday would be a great way to put it all together.
As Monster 1 turned 9 this week I wanted to start with one especially for him. Finding the photo and going through so many made me cry ….a lot. It reminds me just how quick these last 9 years have gone and what a beautiful, kind and caring 9 year old I have raised! And we all know I’m a ridiculously emotional crybaby!!
Nine Years Ago.
Pictures & A Poem To My Number1
I never imagined as I carried you the true difference to my life you would make, I’d imagined the stink of your nappies and staying up really late.
I hadn’t taken into consideration all the glorious gifts you would bring, Your smile when you look at me and the beautiful song you make my heart sing.
I got so caught up being scared and worrying whether I was doing all right, that for a little while it was a bit of a struggle and a fight.
But fight I did through tears and trials pushing my way through, please know my baby I was learning it all and trying my best for you.
9 years later and together we continue to grow, learn and love, I Even try to keep up to date with all the kids “cool stuff”.
As I throwback to the days I felt so very lost and scared, thank you for trusting mummy my baby I promise you I will always be there!
