My Sunday Photo – Breathe


I’m not usually one for a ‘selfie’, but I seem to have posted a few this week. I couldn’t resist this one this morning. It’s been a tough old week, and I seem to struggle most in the mornings. Today Frey wouldn’t eat his breakfast, and I’d forgotten to prepare some fruit puree for his porridge the night before, so blamed myself and felt like the worst mother in the world. Which was slightly over dramatic, but as I said, it’s been a tough week!

Then this. And relax. And breathe. All I need is right here.

    I love these treasured moments, my son aged 4 still falls asleep on me at times, I do not remember my others doing this, but it does seem to make the world feel better. I hope this week is a much more positive week for you and you are not the worst mother, you are a mum, we all forget things at times be reassured. Sending hugs your way, Sadie from Tiaras and wellyboots

    Oh, that’s a lovely photo of you both. My littlest baby is 12 now, and he still gives me lovely hugs but I do miss those days sometimes.
