Shoes, Wheels and Growing Up

As you can see how white his shoes are. Its new. But see how the front bits are gone?
He is using that as break for when he bikes and scoots.
And we are doing a lot of biking lately hence we need a new shoe now!!!

Its really hard to squeez to buy a new shoe with my budget but I am so happy that he is biking more.
As I dont know how to bike haha! And you should see my shoes from always running after him.

As he glides way pass me with his wheels I would think how he is using a different wheels before.
A buggy and I have the control on where we are going and what speed.
Now he is going to the direction that he wants to explore and discover.
My son is going to be 6 soon and I feel like he is swooshing pass me,
and I dont want him to grow that fast and yet I really dont have that control.

All I can do is try to witness how my boy is growing up.

And i feel so lucky to be given a chance to be with him to see it.

I feel the same - they seem to grow so fast, especially once they have started school. You are right they go from buggys to bikes and before we know it, it will be cars!!

Eek! Those shoes! I wouldn't be very happy at all!
They do grow up so quickly!

Ahh...yes it is a balance isn't it?! We want them to be active but would prefer it if shoes were not damaged in the process. I bet he can really speed on his bike now! #whatevertheweather

I know how you feel about time passing by. My eldest has just turned 6, I can't believe how fast he is growing up!
Oh wow, Sebastian's bike riding could become an expensive hobby!

Love the photos, he's a lovely little boy :) x

I used to love to see our girls on their bikes and they used to do the same with their shoes too - it is an expensive alternative to breaks. These are such lovely pictures of Sebastian, he is a cutie! If only we could slow time down, I think it races by once they start school xx #mycapturedmoment

What a lovely post, you can really get a sense of him growing up. It's in the smallest shifts that we can see the biggest changes. Love the pics too x #puddinglove

Hi Merlinda, it is a shame that we can't slow down the rate at which the grow up. And your son is growing up fast. My parents were always giving me and my sister stick for scuffing the front of our shoes whilst riding bikes, scooters and climbing walls too.

Gosh, he's getting bigger all the time and looks different each time I see him. They grow so quickly

Love it!! I remember doing that to my cousin when we were little, literally you could only see his head popping out of the sand. Thank you so much for joining in with #MyCapturedMoment xxx

Wow I thought my son was good at ruining his shoes but that's pretty impressive. Still at least he is enjoying his bike! They grow so fast, so important to enjoy every moment and try not to sweat the small stuff. Thanks for linking up x

That's like my 4 year old, we've gone through a lot of wellies on his bike! Can't believe how quickly they grow though! Thanks for linking up to #Whatevertheweather x
