The first smile, the first tooth, the first step. All the milestones that are so eagerly awaited and set in a mother's memory.

As life speeds up the milestones blur and I find myself loosing track of all the little firsts in their lives.

This was Dancing Queen's first trip to the bakery.

 By herself. Without me.

I waited hidden in the hedge, so that she wouldn't see me, as I made sure she made it back safely.
So she wouldn't see me getting teary.

There will be many more milestones, but this one felt like it was a step away from me.

  1. That must have been difficult for you. My Miss 11 wants to go down to the shop by herself but I'm still too worried for her but I need to let go too. These new milestones are much harder to deal with I think, when did they grow so quickly.:)

  2. How sweet!!!
    I bet she felt super grown up doing the big trek to the bakery all by her self..

  3. So I have stalked Jodie, to find you....
    Missy Moo looks so grown up!!
