If only I could bottle it....

There is something about this girl. When she talks to me - which is most of the day - it gives me a feeling deep inside the pit of my stomach which bubbles up until I either have to grab and kiss her, or laugh out loud. (Unless it's before 6am and she wants to have the "which dress shall I wear today?" conversion, or I'm cooking and hear "muuuuuuum, wipe my buuuuuuum!", which is a different matter...)

Three and a half must surely be the most perfect age - she is curious, articulate, insightful, hilarious, not only tolerates being cuddled but still LOVES it, and to top it all, is incredibly cute. She questions everything and her honesty is refreshing... except when I'm about to leave the house and she says things like "You don't look very lovely in that, Mum."

I know she will grow up and I know from experience with My Boy that it won't always be like this between us, especially when she is at school. I also know I can't bottle this gorgeousness, so I'm doing the next best thing - writing it here. One day, perhaps after a disagreement, or upset, I can look back and remember sitting in bed past midnight thinking about our funny conversations and chuckling to myself (silently, so I don't wake the snorers!) There are times when motherhood can be really tough, but it's the moments like these that make each and every one of the hard times worth it.


  1. Oh boy is she a cutie-patootie!

  2. *sigh* I felt exactly the same about you and tash .... it's such an amazing feeling just imagine how you'll feel about her kids .... that's how I feel about yours. I have the most gorgeous , incredible family. Thank you sarah xxx

  3. Sarah, I know exactly what you mean! I feel the same daily about my 3 and nearly a half yr old, I shall miss her terribly when she starts school next year. I think it's lovely that we have our blogs to document some of these special moments I love these pictures of your little one - perfect! Em (lululoves) xx

  4. Awwww, if you bottle her can I have some ;)

  5. Oh she's just such a cutie. Yes, there is definitely something magical about being three. I sorely miss my own at this age. They just don't have the same appeal as young adults :)

  6. Aw, your mum made me cry! I have a nearly 4 year old. The newness of her, of what she can do constantly amazes me. It's a lovely time. Thanks for reminding me (at the end of a loong day) and for sharing x
