Quality Time

Whilst I have been here at my Mums with Master Poppins, I have learned so much how important he is to me. Of Course Miss. Poppins means the world to me too, but you see I have had bonding issues with Master Poppins, only natural I have been told considering what we went through. I have found that when I had him I could not allow myself to properly bond with him, in case we would lose him.

It has taken two years and some fantastic and enjoyable quality time spent with him to fully understand him, to deeply connect and bond with him and for the first time in a long while, look deep into his eyes and know that he is here to stay.

So here he is at the beach thoroughly enjoying himself, he and I had so much fun, picking shells, getting our feet wet, splashing, and generally having some quality time.

So thank you my sweet little boy for understanding Mummy and for letting her take her time to get to know you, I have loved you from the day, Valentines Day, 2006 when I knew I was excpecting you and you make me and Daddy and your Big Sister proud every day.



  1. Huge hugs for you Mary xxx I'm sure your baby knows just how much you love him :)
    Lovely pics - you are a good mummy letting him get all sandy lol!!

  2. Talking of Sandie, here I am.

    Beautiful photos ... as Claire says he will know how much you love him and that will keep on growing.

    Thanks for your blog encouragement ... felt yesterday as though I'd hit a bit of a trough with it and that I was wasting my time with it. (It's that tiredness thing!)

    Dolly D and you bucked me up, though - thank you.

  3. what better way to continue to bond with your son than to get all sandy and mucky :-) lovely pics I cannot wait to get down on the beach next week!! thanks for your comment :-)
