The baby phase is long gone. Now I've had to accept that the cuddly toddler and beyond phase is to be packed up and put away too.
For Natty, who grows and develops at her own gentle pace, this has extended to 6 years, but I finally had to face the fact that she had grown out of many of her firm favourites. The clothes that had been worn while so many memories were made. We affectionately call them her 'trusty steads'.
Last week I read a touching post by Ross Mountney: Parenting - What Really Matters. about appreciating and enjoying our children while they are young, even if those phases are the toughest, for it simply does pass too quickly.
So please join me for my first ever vlog, about packing away that phase and looking ahead to pastures new. I'm rather nervous about it and would love any feedback you have.
