HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and spent some amazing time with your awesome children!
I found this poem this week and just had to share it – it made me cry and the message has really stuck in my mind since. I hope you like it as much as I do.
Now if that hasn’t touched you I’m guessing you’re either not a parent, or, they’re already teenagers ;)
Unfortunately I can’t credit the author as I haven’t been able to find out who it is, so if you know, please tell us so we can update this post!
Looking forward to exciting things for belle bébés in 2013! Hope to see lots of you! :)
Update 2nd February: We found the author of these beautiful words, or rather, she found us! Steph Turner wrote the poem which can be found over at My Children Mean Everything To Me. Thank you Steph!

Last Halloween I created a collection of families in fancy dress and just thought it would be like any other post. But, somebody awesome somewhere pinned it to Pinterest, and others repinned it, and visitors started coming from all over to see the post! It has since become our most popular post with (if my Google Analytics readings are correct) over 125,000 visitors! Because people clearly love families in costume I thought I’d do another one this year :)
