This is the gorgeous Rachael & her equally gorgeous niece, Amelia. Rachael was the first person to ever contact me through this weblog & today I spent the morning with her, her beautiful boys, her sister Sarah & her beautiful girls.
These sisters live cities apart. As do I & my sister. Having children without doubt deepens the bond & understanding between siblings & brings with it a whole new dimension to your relationship. I know how special this time is when you can be together with your children.
A first for him & a first for us.
Much of my reflection in the lead up to our biggest little man starting school has been about how our family dynamic will change now that we will not all be at home together. I’m sad that this time in my life when all my “babies” were close by has come to an end & selfishly, I’m also sad because it means I am getting older too.
I remember being little & feeling like I would never “grow up” & I’m sure our boys feel the same. I just wish I could slow it all down a little bit!!
So here he goes, off into the world…
