gone baby gone

16 Aug

A few days ago, Yiannis turned six.


Instead of being the super proud mom of a 6-year-old who said goodbye to preschool a couple of months ago, I fell apart.

I panicked.

Where did the last six years go? Did I lose my chance of enjoying my boy as much as I could, for good? Did I dwell on my mistakes and lost my patience more than I should have? Will he remember the times I wasn’t the perfect mom I was striving to be?

Will the good times prevail?

I sure hope they do.

Then, when I thought I couldn’t get more melodramatic, he lost his first tooth.


This baby is gone. Officially gone.

And this mom is a wacko. Officially a wacko.

Until next time

    I know exactly what you mean! And what’s the world without a few wackos? Of which, I am one too! Happy Birthday to Yianni!

      thank you Marianne! It’s reassuring (?) to know I am not alone. The world would be boring without us. Totally. xxx

    Tatu, oh my gosh how quickly time flies doesn’t it? Happy belated birthday Yannis. I totally understand how you feel, I feel like this too.
    When my eldest turned 10 this yr, I was so sad, happily sad. It is the beginning of the end of childhood and very soon she will be off to a school away from the happy bubble she is in now. I freak out sometimes, although most times, I try to be present with it. What I’m trying to say is that I’m a whacko too!!!! Should we start a club 🙂

      Thank you for your wishes my dear friend. Hope you are all well! xxx
