Well this may be a long post as a lot has happened in the last year. Not only do I have my beautiful son Colby who in my opinion is far to bright for his own good, which we will get to later. But we also now have a beautiful baby girl who’s name is Darcie and is 5 months old, hence the lack of posts which again I apologise for but will be able to write more often now.
Where to start….. Colby my son is now 21 months old and soaks up information like a sponge, what child of that age counts from 0-20, and knows various shapes including a trapezium… I’m sure I didn’t know that at his age. However he has developed many other talents such as extreme climbing, running like Flash Gordon and throwing like captain America (that is a particular favourite of his I might add). He’s a model big brother trying to teach his sibling all the essentials like getting that extra 20 minutes before bed time by tactically asking for another bath.
Let’s now introduce Darcie, my gorgeous little princess who never seems to stop smiling bless her. She was let’s say a little unexpected but a wonderful addition to our little family. Now I’ve decided this may work to an advantage as we already had everything we needed for another baby and they get to grow up and learn from each other from a very young age, hopefully building a better bond and not having to endure civil war in the Smith house for the next 18 years.
I am also now doing a history degree amongst all this……too much you say?!, don’t worry I have incredible time keeping haha. But it’s all in the interest of my babies future, they really have changed my life for the better. I have lost 2 and a half stone since October going to the gym, stopped drinking pretty much all together apart from during the euros wink wink. And all round improved my life, health wise and aspirationally.
Children really do show you what can be achieved with hard work and determination, believe me hard work it most definitely is but also worth it a thousand times over. I will write again hopefully during the week a doody calls… I mean duty calls.
So long folks have a great week Dane and family.
