Do you ever have those times when you look at your child and realise they’ve suddenly grown a few inches?!
We had that recently with Rhys. One day I realised that his school trousers had become ankle-swingers, seemingly overnight.
He really is growing up, this boy.
He’s realising that there is a whole world out there that he can learn about and he is soaking up all the knowledge he can.
He’s been reading about the solar system, and every now and then he’ll excitedly tell me about one of the planets. He’s just like his dad, storing information away. His memory is way better than mine!
He’s getting bolder too. We had another chat the other day about not giving up. About how some things can be really hard when you first try them, but the important thing is to keep on trying.
This photo sort of represents that to me.
He was working his way across the climbing wall at the park, and was so determined to do it, even though it was hard.
Even though he fell off several times, he just got back up and tried again.
Those little things, they make you rather proud don’t they!
