Today for Flashback Friday – I took pot luck. I have a cupboard full of the old-style envelopes of photos. You know – the type you would pick up from the chemist after having had them developed….back in the ‘old’ days! One day I hope to sort them into some sort of order.
I popped my hand in and grabbed the first one I encountered. It contained photographs of a beach holiday from when the kids were little. It’s quite coincidental really, because we’ve just had a beach holiday. Beach holidays are so different now though then when the kids were little. The week we had all together up the coast just recently could very well have been our last holiday all together. You just don’t know.
This photograph must have been taken around 1997. I’m guessing that MissM is around 2 and the twins around 4. I’m not certain which beach we were at.
When I look at this photograph, initially I smile because they were so cute and I remember loving watching the fun they had at the beach. It was all so exciting for them! Then I get a little sad, because I miss them being little. When they were little, little things gave them so much delight and they wanted to spend time with mum and they loved my cuddles and kisses.
It’s inevitable that they grow up. They are at the age now where spending time with mum is not a priority, kisses and cuddles are embarrassing, and playing on the beach does not bring the delight as when they were younger.
To anyone who reads this who has little kids….absorb it, enjoy it, photograph it. They grow up far too quickly.
