They Grow Up So Fast


I Just got home after a beautiful weekend away with my son, hanging out at many of our old favourite places from when he was little. At 17 he is increasingly out on his own adventures and hanging out with his friends so it was precious to have him all to myself for the weekend. We shared the driving while he educated me about his huge music collection, we hung out and chatted and had lots of fun and jokes. I loved being with him.  

When my kids were little I sometimes felt exhausted and overwhelmed - the endless laundry, people seemingly always needing to be fed and the responsibility of always having little people to look after. But wow it flies by so fast - one minute he was a baby and the next he’s almost a man.

I am so grateful to have discovered Aware Parenting. It taught me how to prioritise connection with my children, how to listen to whatever is in their hearts, how to navigate the tricky times in ways that ensure everyone feels loved, how to trust them and myself, how to play to help us all release stress and how to keep healing my own hurts along the way.
