Embrace every moment #PowerOfSoft

family love

There is literally nothing I love more than chilling out with my little man. The above photo captures a wonderful moment in what was actually a bit of a rubbish day but it's these moments that make everything else not that important because at the end of the day your health, family and happiness is really what is important. I cannot believe how time has flown by and now he is four years old! Everyday he is funnier than and smarter than the day before and our conversations become more interesting every week, luckily I have the luxury of spending a lot of time with him as we have held off with starting school for now and have opted for homeschooling which has been very fun in itself as I watch this little man grow in front of our eyes. Even though I am not having to do the school run and the long wait at the gates I too feel the pain of time and how fast it flies by us as parents and how we all really need to embrace every day and every second we have with our children because all too soon they will be flying the nest.

Fairy Non Bio have put together a beautiful little video that captures that feeling of time flying by and  seeing your babies grow through childhood in a blink of an eye and it reminds me how much we need to treasure each and every moment and to enjoy those special cuddles with your little ones, in fact in a survey they did the most missed thing about the early school days were the super soft kisses and cuddles.

I cannot help but feel a little bit moved by this video, I think being a parent we finally realise how precious time is. What do you love to do with your kids in your free time and if you have a positive message to share about the transitions we take as parents through the minefield of baby to toddler to child t teenager please share in the comments.


  1. I don't have kids but this certainly gives me the warm and fuzzies!
