Never too old for ‘firsts’

It’s been a while since we experienced a ‘first’ with Ahren and Ethan, the older they get the fewer and further apart any ‘firsts’ are, yet on a walk around the South Downs last weekend they experienced a rope tyre swing for the first time!

I’m not actually sure who was most excited, them or me!

It was one of those ‘Childhood Must Do’ moments.

I missed out on many of their traditional ‘firsts’ due to being to deeply immersed in depression, getting to experience these unexpected ones is such a joy and although they don’t make up for the ones I’ve missed, it’s wonderful to experience them with my boys.
