Boo Is 11

Today my girl turns 11 years old. I know, I know, I say it every year, but how is this possible? She was only just toddling around, it was only a few months ago that she started school, surely? And yet here she is, in her final year at primary school, and we’re about to …

Happy 9th Birthday, Boo

Today my beautiful daughter is 9 years old. I don’t know why, but ‘9’ just seems so grown up to me. I handled 7 and 8, but 9, 9 just seems too much! Maybe it is because I am seeing those changes in my girl, Boo is definitely growing up and entering into that ‘tween’ …

Happy 8th Birthday, Boo!

Today my beautiful baby girl is 8. These eight years have just flown by, and my eldest has ensured that I have loved it all. From baby to toddler to pre-schooler to school girl, Boo has delighted in everything around her. She misses nothing, is freakishly observant, and absorbs all that she can like a …

Happy 7th Birthday, Boo

Today my beautiful girl is seven years old. Seven! I vividly remember the moment that she entered the world, calm in the water and just so utterly perfect. She was an active baby, an active toddler and as ages 3, 4, 5 and 6 have seen her remain active, I’m going to assume that 7 …

Happy 6th Birthday, Boo

Today my girl is six years old. Today Boo will be eating pancakes for breakfast (as requested!), opening her presents and then she’ll be off to her first big birthday party. When we return home, close family will be coming to share her cake with her, give her yet more gifts and make a fuss of the …

Boo Rides a Bike!

A new milestone has been reached! Last weekend, Boo got her bike out for the first time this year. Both of the kids tend to spend more time on their scooters than their bikes, but with more time spent in the garden, the bikes are back out again. She asked us to take the stabilisers …

My Special Gift

At the end of last week, the children were told that they could take £2.50 into school as there would be a few gifts they could choose to surprise mum and dad with. To be honest, I wasn’t going to bother sending Boo with any money, but when I mentioned it to her, her eyes …

Me and My Girl

Boo’s 5 now, a school girl and growing up so fast. It means that I now get plenty of one on one time with Little Man, but not so much with my gorgeous girl. I miss it. I miss having her round me, chattering away. I miss the quiet times we used to have when she …

Happy 5th Birthday, Boo

Today my girl turns 5. For the first time since she was born, we’re apart on her birthday as she will be at school. She’s quite content to be going, and another little girl in her class is also 5 today, so I’m sure they’ll have plenty of fun there. It’s another sign of how grown up …

Siblings – June

This month has seen Boo and Little Man enjoying more time outside, which means that they both have to put hats and sunglasses on every time (their rule, not mine!). We’ve had days in the garden, fun times at theme parks and enjoyed more National Trust outings. Boo looks out for Little Man, Little Man …

Siblings – May

Little Man’s been enjoying more freedom from the pushchair on our outings lately, which means he’s tearing about the place and desperate to do everything that his sister does. She calls him and runs off, he chases. They are partners in crime. Where one goes, the other will follow. Often into mischief, though if I’m …

Boo Aged 4 & A Half

My little girl is growing up. How has this happened?! She turns 4 and a half this month, and is learning so much all of the time. My little sponge girl. She’s been helping in the garden, planting seeds, asking questions, and she’s retaining so much information. She names lots of common flowers, like daisies, …
