A New Stage for Mr Squishy

My little man is growing up fast.  It seems like it was only yesterday that I was in hospital with contractions and asking for my epidural.  We were all excited about the new addition to the family.  It wasn’t long until we couldn’t imagine life without our new mini man in the house.






How time flies.  The baby boy that I once cuddled in my arms without straining is not quite so easy to lift now.


Yesterday saw the dawn of a new stage in my little man’s life, his first day of nursery.  The two hours we were there were full of fun, tears, lego, water, rice and beans (dried) and I will admit I did get rather emotional at the thought of losing my last baby to nursery.  It’s quite a hard thing to come to terms with.  The children that were once devoted and totally dependent on us eventually no longer need us as much over the years until eventually we see them just a few times a month.  Thankfully I haven’t gotten to the final stage yet although I know I will have plenty to fill my time, maybe I will open a cake making business or an online natural remedy company.  Whatever I choose I am happy that it isn’t just yet as I still get to enjoy my children that bit longer.

Do you have little ones at home still?

How do you feel / did you feel at the prospect of them going to nursery / school.

    1. Thanks JO, I am hoping next visit we don’t have any tears at all.

  6. My eldest has just gone up to secondary school and I must admit I got a bit teary when he went. My other two have just gone up to year 1 and 2. It only seems two minutes since they were crawling around

    1. It is a strange experience isn’t it They seem to grow so quickly. As we get older time seems to fly by so much faster.

    1. It will come along sooner than you think Jess it did with all 3 of mine. Make the most of having the little one at home.

  9. My child is growing fast too and it’s so cute but we also miss the younger versions of our kids. Your boy is adorable.

    1. Thanks Angela. I know they are so adorable when they are small but then the grown up versions mean you can do more together.

  10. Your little one is absolutely adorable! I hope he settles in well.

  11. Bless him he is growing up so fast I remember when u first announced his birth.
    Blake won’t be going to preschool til he is 3 the idea makes me realky nervous

    1. Mine is one soon but is so in need to something like nursery. He is only going for a few hours a week but I know it will do him good and give me a brief rest. I bet Blake enjoys it. I know how you feel our second visit we are planning on settling him and going.

  12. Awh, he’s such an adorable little boy! I hope everything went well for him at nursery! xo

    1. It does go very fast.

  15. Sebastian has just started nursery and I had a lump in my throat the first day. I am looking forward to shopping in peace though lol

    1. Lol, I don’t blame you. It’s nice to shop without a little one to take too.

  16. Oh how adorable I hope nursery goes well. My youngest has just gone to junior school and my oldest moved away last year for Uni. He came back every month last year as had work here but doesn’t now so wont see him as much. It isn’t as hard as I thought because I am confident he is doing well there without me.

    1. Wow Uni is a big step, I hope it all goes well.
