Photo Heart Connection

Every time a child says "I don't believe in fairies" there is a little fairy somewhere that drops down dead
J M Barrie

We're not quite there yet, but we're not far off.  The questions have started, the process of growing up is underway.  Still interspersed with dangly mittens, cute little leggings, coats worn on heads, Lego, Enid Blyton, running at full pelt, laughing so hard you can't stop, colouring, refusal to eat tomatoes, wanting a pony, Scooby Doo, teddy bears, knee socks, collecting conkers and feeding the ducks.  But it has most certainly started.

I know this is how it goes but it seems to happen almost overnight.  And I know she's ready.  I just wish I was.


  1. I love this post . . . brings back so many memories of my childhood. I wish we never had to grow up.

  2. Ah, so beautiful, this moment of childhood frozen in image and words. I can feel your love for this girl and where she is at right now. Thank you for sharing in the Photo-Heart Connection, Becs.

  3. Beautiful capture of a treasured time in her life -- and your life. There is so much that is exciting that is ahead, but there is also a certain loss of innocence that is a bit sad.

  4. Oh, what a poignant image and story. Even though we know it happens - that it SHOULD happen - this growing up always seems to take us, as mothers, by surprise. How can it happen so very quickly?

  5. Oh, they grow up don't they? Beautiful image.

  6. I remember my own dangling mittens and wearing my coat on my head that way. And I remember my boys at times growing so slowly and other times all too fast. I love how you captured the moment in words and image.

  7. What a beautiful Photo-Heart connection this is, Becs.
    Indeed it does go by all too fast.
    Wishing you a wonderful day!

  8. I love the dangly mittens... and can identify with your feelings of the fleetingness of childhood and how we mothers sometimes wish to hold onto it just a little bit longer. A sweet photo-heart connection!
    P.S. I still believe in fairies!!!
