1. Hayley I nearly cried! I cannot believe he will be at school soon and so grown up! What a lovely post and that toy made me feel all emotional. You’re right and I am going to feel the same too when my twins go to school. I am finding their agree challenging too, harder than the baby years but mine as also funny and hilarious together. Oh Hayley, this is a lovely new phase and you’ll have school plays, sports day and all those adorable things from the first years of school. Big hugs Jess xxxx

  2. Oh Hayley *blub* this is just so lovely.
    I’d put him somewhere safe in a box too. It’s be lovely for him to be able to keep it for one of his own children one day!
    Little Miss has a little Teddy Winne the Pooh. My Nan got it for her on the day she was born. I don;t know what it was about Winnie that she loved, but she does. Isn’t it funny how even at the age they can decide what they love?! xxxxxx

  3. Awww. As sad as it is that he’s growing and won’t be this tiny fun age for long, it’s also really exciting that soon he’ll be in gradeschool and high school and turning into a man. I think that both ends of the spectrum, young child to older child, have pros and cons and I try and focus on the exciting stuff happening soon than being sad about how much my daughter has grown. But… then people post their ‘Time Hop’ things of Lyla as a little baby and I get alll emotional!

  4. I always found it hard to let go of the things my child grew out of or too old for. However recently I started selling all her too small clothes. Sad to see it go but a much needed clear out! Angela x

  5. Ahh big hugs, I know how you feel about them startng school, I just can’t believe that time is nearly here. How has it gone so so quickly???I think you are right to keep the zebra rattle forever. We sadly got rid of a lot and now I keep thinking maybe I should have kept a bit more. I know we’ll make new memories but some little bits are always extra special!

  6. I still have Ellie’s, now 10, first toys. 2 cats…and they have came out with every baby. But now as Elsie passes the 18 month mark they don’t really get played with any more. Yet knowing we won’t be having anymore babys I can’t bring myself to pack them away. Knowing they won’t ever come out again. Never to be played with by my babies. Oh its too much to even think about! So for now they stay in the toy box, waiting for one of the children to remember they are their….

    This will be me this time next year *sobs*. It is exciting but scary all at the same time #sharewithme

  8. It is always the simple things which win the day – I also spent much money on things which were never looked at, with cardboard boxes, or a ballon always winning the day! Just you hold onto that zebra. Maybe the grandkids will like it someday! #sharewithme

  9. Lovely post. It made me really realise my two are growing up so fast, and it makes me sad. They are no longer my babies. We had this same toy for my youngest Noah and I have a photo of him holding it so tight. It too was kept in the changing bag for the times we were out and about when we needed him. I find it very hard to give away baby toys even though we don’t have the use for them anymore. #ShareWithMe xx

  10. What a lovely post! I have that same connection with my Lamaze Turtle Toy 🙂 I too have written a post about him x Please keep Mr. Zebra forever…. X #Sharewithme

  11. Oh do hold onto it for the memories hunny. I love toys that bring it all back for us. B starts school soon too I can’t believe he is almost four too. Where has those four years gone? It just blows me away how fast life is going. Lovely post darling. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me I hope you are enjoying my blog hop and thanks for all the linky support! #sharewithme
