Slipping Through My Fingers: Week 1

Slipping Through My Fingers: Week 1

Welcome to the first ever Slipping Through My Fingers!

This is a Parenting Blog linky run by Happy Mummy, Double The Monkey Business & Candyfloss & Dreams.

The linky was inspired by the Abba Song ‘Slipping Through My Fingers’. I defy any parent to listen to the words of that song without welling up a little.

It is so true.  Just when we think we have nailed it and know everything we possibly can about our children for that split second in time, they grow and we have to catch them up all over again!

Stop and Reflect with Slipping Through My Fingers

Slipping Through My Fingers – A Parenting Blog Linky – is a place for you to sit back & really stop to think about ways your child has grown and developed over the previous month.

These don’t have to be HUGE milestones such as learning to walk or talk.  I am talking about the little things – the ones that get you right in the heart.  The first time they say ‘I love you Mummy/daddy’, their growing confidence and independence – whatever it is for you that particular month – there really is no right or wrong.

Unless you decide to use this space to link up a post about your hamsters latest meal – you get the gist!

Join Us

To join in the fun, join up with your development posts here.  We would love to see photos of you & your child and write about the ways in which they have grown. We really are excited about Slipping Through My Fingers – A Parenting Blog Linky – and we really cannot wait to read your posts!

Slipping Through My Fingers will run from the 14th of each month, to the end of each month.

    This is a lovely idea!
    My children are 17, 13, 9 and 5 and honestly, the past decade has just whizzed by (mainly because its been so busy!) … I always try to take in the moment, and the whole entire stage before it quickly evolves again.
