In the blink of an eye

Short posting today but I had to get it written down...

Iain started High School this morning, he's going to be 12 on Saturday and I really can't beleive how quickly time passes, one moment you have them on your knee singing nursery rhymes and all too soon they're going on into the world on their own. For the first time Iain is making his own way to school, he has to leave before most of us get up because his school starts nearly an hour before the girls school does, he finishes earlier as well of course and that has meant that he's now got his own key as well, now that is a scary thought!!

I still can't quite get over the fact that twelve years ago i was contemplating the imminent birth of my first child and it reminds me as I remind you to enjoy and savour each day that children are young, those little funny things they come out with, those joys of childhood need to be held on to for as long as possible because in the blink of an eye they're gone.
