Sunday Quote

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”
- Elizabeth Stone

We had our first scare with our precious wee man today which really bought home this quote. Now I will be sure that anybody holding the babe is no where near the car when I shut the boot.

The strength of feeling I have for someone I've known for eight weeks is frightening, obviously you can't walk around every day thinking about how bad it would be if anything ever did happen, but today...

The enormous love I have for this little man has opened me up to the preciousness of all children, I have a new understanding that all these little people walking around are carrying their parents hearts with them. Somebody would feel the same despair I would if anything ever happened to them. It makes me drive more carefully. At the same time, seeing kids makes me smile now, because I also know the joy they are bringing to someone.

Hope you had a lovely weekend with no scares


  1. Oh dear, hope Charlie is not too traumatised by his encounter with the car boot. It'll be the first of many moments for you I'm sure.

    I can't believe it's been 2 months - time flies!!

  2. Aw poor little guy. He's so precious.

  3. you are so so right. There are many tears at news articles from me and husband these days. It is just unthinkable, ever.

    He is smiling!
