Ten on the Tenth

As my youngest son is approaching his teens, it got me thinking about how grown up my kids now are, and what I miss about the days when they were younger.

1. Stories at bedtime.

2. Cuddles on demand (they demanded!)
3. Paddling pool fun

4. When they believed.

5. Sucky cups!

6. Wanting to help!

7. Dressing up.

8. Pushchairs, so handy to carry everything!

9. Letting me choose what they wore.

10. Face painting fun.
If your children are small, enjoy it while it lasts!

Some great photos and precious memories. My youngest is fast approaching her teens, so most of things are behind us too.

I love this list! I have such lovely memories now. I think I miss 'wanting to help' at 22 its more a question of me asking/begging for help! x

Jane said...

Spome lovely memories there in the pics you've chosen.
Wait till the Grand-child start rolling in - you can do it all again, plus hand them back when they get too much....Mgt.
