I did consider posting this selfie this week...
but thought that might be disrespectful to elephants everywhere.
I'm super aware that this is as comfortable as parenting gets.
(In practical terms anyhow. I'm going to pretend for a moment that I'm not worried out of my mind about his little 'health situation'.)
A beautiful boy happily leading me around one of my favourite places - the zoo.
A beautiful bump that (at this point in time) is giving me no grief and more than willing to follow Magoo's lead.
A full night's sleep under my belly belt.
Plus a hands-free-to-actually-drink-it hot chocolate to boot.
This caper ain't going to last.
(If every second person I've encountered over the past three years is to be believed, anyway!)
So, I'm determined to enjoy it while I can.
Fast forward a year and this gorgeous boy will be at kindy four days a week.
I'm assuming I'll have to get him there, right?!
Preferably bathed, fed, dressed appropriately, on time and with adequate nutrition for the day.
The fuss-free bump will be my baby girl - who, no doubt, won't be into letting Mummy savour hot drinks and wander aimlessly through lush gardens.
Try as I might.
I look forward to what is ahead for my little family, but I'm also conscious of savouring this time too.
A cold has rendered me pretty anti-social for the last couple of days and I have relished in soaking up one on one time with my Magoo.
This week aside, we've spent lots of 'us' time together in the last few months pottering, exploring, visiting, playing tourists and hanging out in coffee shops.
I know I'll look back on this time with him so fondly and am determined to drink it in.
Linking with gorgeous Fi and her 52 Week Project.
