Our 2018

As years go, this year has probably been the most emotionally draining year. It’s also been even busier what with us entering the home stretch to the world of school. I thought last year was a busy one, but as T is getting older the years seem to be passing us at the same rate as his legs.

I know I say this every year, but this year was by far the best one when it comes to T (it probably wasn’t the best as a whole though, which I explain later on).

Whilst this is fun and it’s great that we’re never bored – several times throughout this year I could have done with a pause button. Our days are flying by and our baby is growing up way too fast for my liking. It’s hard to keep track of everything and there are days when I look at Sharon and ask; When did he start doing that? or When was the last time he did this? I miss that.
