A Magical Moment with Robbie

Hi there,
A Magical Moment with Robbie, under the stars
While I was away on a short break with the family I was lucky enough to experience a number of magical moments with the kids and thought I would share one with you in the hope you catch a magical moment for yourselves.

So Robbie, age 5, and I are lying on sunbeds looking at the stars and a lovely conversation ensues about the moon, how we could get there and who lives on the moon. We then spot a satellite racing across the night sky and then a shooting star, Robbie’s first time to see a real shooting star. 

The excitement is infectious and we both make a wish. Robbie tells me he can’t tell me his wish because it is bad luck so I tell him that he is always allowed to tell someone in his family his wish but no one else, so he tells me his wish which is lovely and selfless but I’m afraid has to remain between the two of us.

Next we turn our attention to the stars and I tell him that they are the same size as our sun but look small because they are so far away and I do my best to explain that the light from the stars is over 2000 years old because that is how long it takes the light from a star to get here.

Finally we go beyond the stars and we talk a little bit about the Milky Way, galaxies and where heaven fits into all this, remember Robbie is 5 so you can imagine the questions.

Then comes our very special moment, Robbie says, “Dad how come you love me so much?" “Well Robbie,” I reply, “That’s easy, when you were in heaven before you were born God asked you who you wanted to have as your Mummy and Daddy, and do you know what Robbie?”, "What Daddy?” “out of all the Mums and Dads in all the world you picked me and mummy and that is why we love you so much.” “Oh” Robbie replies, “now I know why I love you so much as well, because I picked you, that’s good.” he says.

What a never to be forgotten magical moment that was, and a fitting way to begin what I hope will be a very enjoyable blog for everyone. I do hope that you manage to get a chance to see the stars this summer and that you catch a magical moment to share with your amazing inquisitive smallies.

If you've had any magical moments of your own that you'd like to share just post them below, or on our Facebook page, or you can email them to me directly at  Thanks!

Till next week
Love hugs and kisses to all.
