Thursday Theme Song: Turn around

This post is dedicated to my first born D who lives thousands of miles away.

Turn around, you are a baby.

Turn around, you are two. We visited Australia.

Turn around, you are four. You had a best friend at creche.


Turn around, you are nine, You loved the piano. You still do.

Turn around, You are twelve, and you were angels with your cousin KT.

Turn around, you are sixteen. You were an Amazon woman doing the bungy.

Turn around, you are sixteen and forever an apple in Daddy's eye.


Turn around, you were capped.

Turn around, you are a young wife.

Turn around, you have young babies of your own.

The last two photos have not eventuated yet. They were borrowed to suit this song.


Malvina Reynolds 1900-1978 She wrote well into her golden years
The Brothers Four - Turn Around

Where are you going, my little one, little one
Where are you going, my baby, my own?
Turn around and you're two, turn around and you're four
Turn around and you're a young girl going out of my door

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you're a young girl going out of my door

Where are you going, my little one, little one
Little dirndls and petticoats, where have you gone?
Turn around and you're tiny, turn around and you're grown
Turn around and you're a young wife with babes of your own

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you're a young wife with babes of your own

Turn around, turn around
Turn around and you're the young girl going out of the door

Where are you going, my little one, little one
Where are you going, my ba-by, my own?

The Brothers Four -- that's a while ago. That song was played so often I got tired of it, even though I really liked it a lot.
It certainly turned out to be perfect for you, Ann. Lovely tribute to your firstborn.

I have never heard this song before and I absolutely love it. And how you went from birth to womanhood is just excellent my friend. What a precious one she is :) Very well done :)

I remember this song very well! Such wonderful memories, and you have a beautiful daughter! It is so sad that you live so far away, though!

How wonderful! The way we look at our own selves being caught in the blogging spree and meeting new people or strangers, who would have thought Life is what it is for us today?

Great post for a nostalgic memory!

I am okay now and then. Thanks for your kind concern Ann.
