Swinging Around the Playground

Swinging around the playgroundAwww. My boy. We went to the playground a few days ago and Dubz wanted to go on the swings. He is actually quiteย a scaredy-cat when it comes to swings or even when his daddy throws him around. But he asked to go on the swings, and even swung for a few minutes. A new record. It’s funny how such a small thing really hits home at how Dubz is changing. He turns three in a few months (which I can’t even think about for too long as I just want to sob). He is getting further and further away from being a baby. And I will never have another baby. Pardon me while I go cry in my pillow.


I am linking this post to My Sunday Photo over at OneDad3Girls and Ordinary Moments at MummyDaddyME.

  1. Aww this sounds so similar to my little boy. He’s only just started to get over his fear of swings at 2 and a half, loved them as a baby and then became a big scaredy-cat who just walked from bench to bench at the play park to have a sit down like a little old man haha. Glad Dubz is getting to enjoy them again now. Happy New Year to you all x

  2. I understand exactly how you feel! My son was three in November, and I will also never have another baby. Watching them grow up can be so bittersweet. This is a fab photo though, and I love his hat! #MySundayPhoto

  3. Awwww, these moments get me as well, our boys turn 4 next week and can now swing themselves standing up- it makes my heart burst with happiness with a inkling of sadness that they are neither babies or toddlers any longer. I am glad you and he have found happiness in the moment.

  4. Aw so cute and I love his jacket. Both my girls love swings and my littlest is a proper daredevil (she goes down water slides on her own and all sorts at not even 2) but her big sister is a lot more cautious and a bit of a scaredy cat too. It doesn’t look like Dubz is scared anymore though- he looks like he will be a swing fan from now on! ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

  5. He looks like he is loving it there, I think swings may soon become a favourite. I’m popping over from My Sunday Photo but do join me for Country Kids too, it’s a perfect outdoor fun post. Your baby may be growing but there are plenty of fun years just round the corner for you too.

  6. My boys are so big now. Will is almost taller than me now. John’s pants all hit him at his shins because I hate shopping for bigger clothes for him. Look at your little one on the swing with that smile!

  7. Swings are some of the best memories ever that I have from childhood and I can completely relate to not having more babies and feeling a bit tearful – Little Man turns two in May and it makes me want to cry! No more babies ๐Ÿ™ x
