Where did all that time go?

Have your say

Time really is going way too fast.

I knew it would happen though as I had been warned so many times.

When Caitlin was born, many friends and family members told me to enjoy her first few years and to take in everything as before I knew it she’d be heading off to nursery.

So that’s what I have done. I’ve made sure I’ve enjoyed every single moment with my first-born and I’ve probably taken far too many photos.

But still time has flown by and she has gone from a helpless newborn baby into an independent three-year-old in what seems like the blink of an eye.

And now the time has come for a big change in Caitlin’s life; she is starting nursery.

Although we prepared her the best we could, it was still a worry how she would react when we left her alone for the first time.

All the preparation worked as after a kiss goodbye she wandered off to play with her new friends with no fuss.

It seems she had fun as the next morning it was me waking her up instead of her waking me up.
