I can remember thinking that at every stage when the boys were growing up that they were getting older....milestones they passed,birthdays,changing schools etc were all too obvious signs to me that the boys were growing up fast,much too fast for my liking.
If it were left to me I would have slowed time right down so that I could have savoured their childhood even more then I did.
I loved being pregnant even through the morning sickness and the near pre-eclampsia and I used to feel that my baby was safe from everything whilst I was carrying it.
Every where I went they went too and I liked it that way.
I knew that the moment they were born and that umbilical cord was snipped the big bad world would slowly but surely begin to impact on my sweet baby and also the slow but gradual pulling away from me would begin.
