they grow up so fast

So I’ve had those sneakers for 10 years now, my daughter wore her sneakers for 10 months.


All parents have said it, thought it or cried while acknowledging it. My heart broke when my daughter said to me “Mummy, these shoes makes my toes all squishy and my feet hurt”. I loved having some what matching shoes with her and I know I could just go out and buy her another pair, but it just isn’t the same.

At a wedding I attended on the weekend, so many of the guests were my parents friends who have known me since I was in my mothers belly. The phrase “You grew up so fast!” was coming from all directions. If I think about it, I did. But doesn’t everyone?


  1. They do grow up so fast! It’s amazing how they continue growing right in front of our eyes but it takes for squishy toes or a new talent for us to stop, take a breath, and notice! Enjoy everyoment! Before you know it they’ll be teenagers and then adults!

    • oh no please don’t remind me 😦 my youngest just started primary school this week and I’m so lonely at home. I don’t even want to think about the teenage years, let alone when they’re adults! Judging by the stress my 31 year old brother gives our mother I’m going to enjoy these years to the fullest.
