Now you are two Mabli


Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown. In my heart it don’t mean a thing. – Toni Morrison

I feel like there isn't a day go by lately when I'm not marvelling at how quickly my two seem to be growing. Wilf with his school buddies, his amazing lego inventions he creates in his room (he called this 're-crafting lego' the other day which made me laugh so hard), his reading comic books early in the morning by his nightlight. Seeing him become a little boy with passions separate to our own and his own brilliant outlook on life.

Mabli too has bursts of being
independent, she want to dress herself and pick out her own clothes (Wilf doesn't yet want to do this so this was new on me, ha!). She is fearless on a scooter and she wants to mother her softies (and the cats) all day long. I remember so clearly these Spring days four year ago with Wilf at two, the conversations we would have, the lazy making daisy chains in the park, meeting friends for coffee (I actually found this post I wrote around this time way back then and it made me so nostalgic). I feel like these days are flying past so quickly now and I want to just freeze time. Isn't that always the way it goes?

We've started a few days of nursery (just three hours per day) to help free up some time to work so that the rest of the time can be focussed on the kids. We obviously work more than that but we can work separately so that one of us can be home or being the primary carer. It's not lost on me how lucky we are in this situation and I have you guys to thank for the life we've been able to create. I thought it would be a painful separation but it turns out she loves it, not a single tear has been shed and she runs to pop her little boots on as school as she hears its time to go. So ready to grow up and go to school like her big brother. Only don't grow up so fast OK?
