Ava: Super Princess

I wanted to share a story that has touched me for the last few years. Ava: Super Princess. The wonderful Sheye Rosemeyer's little darling girl who was taken far too soon from this world.
She went of in search of some sweets from the car, shut the car door and couldnt get out. The heat in the car quickly killed her.
It makes me so sad to think of Ava and the thought that if anything happened to my girls, how i would cope. I dont honestly think i could! It scares me all the time to think they on one split second, they will get taken away and all i will be left with is photographs and videos but no touch or smell or the chance to kiss them again or tell them i love them one more time. It makes me want to video record every single second they are awake so i dont miss anything and i have all those memories to cherish. I just cant seem to capture as much as i want or need to.
I wish there was some comforting words i could give Sheye. I just dont know how to even start to tell her how heartbreaking it is to read her story and how brave i truly think she is. I have awful nightmares about the girls being taken away from me. I just cannot shake the feeling of sometimes.

Please take a moment just to read this postcard. Its just something you dont think would happen but it can and it has to hundreds of little lifes.

Sorry to post such a sad post but it has been something that has been on my mind alot lately and just the thought of it being Elle breaks me.



  1. so so sad. I a the same way as you when it comes to the thought of losing my child. Can never get enough videos or pictures, but to never hear their tiny voice or feel their fingers or toes? Devastating.

  2. Hi darling,
    I remember first learning of Ava through belle & boo's print which you have shared here. Sheye is such an inspiring photographer as well.
    I had never known how Ava passed away. That is tragic.
    How admirable of Sheye to allow her daughters image to be used on the cards highlighting this issue.
    I am so aware of how precious life is, and I'm so glad to know that you cherish every moment with Elle and Mia. That is always obvious from the way you write of them & the life you lead. It's always so positive and uplifting, which sadly isn't always how people are about their kids- sometimes you're left wondering if they even regret having them - since they focus in how curtailed their lives are as opposed to seeing how enriched they could become.
    You need to take photos don't you cause things are appreciated and memories treasured all the more when you do.
    Love to you and yours

    oh Keri-Anne this story breaks my heart every time I think about it. It makes you realise how fragile life is. I have been extra worried about Maddie lately too. I had a dream (nightmare) last week that has stuck with me and when I woke up I thought it was still real until I heard her stirring on the mattress next to my bed. The relief I felt was phenomenal! I am always worried about her and sometimes can't stop myself from thinking of what could happen - but you know what... you need to focus on what you DO have, not what you might lose. And you do that so well, like Kat said you are so positive in your mothering and I look up to you in that. I miss you so much and love you dearly! I hope you are feeling ok... you have a lot to proud of :) :)
    Your girls are growing so beautifully!

    Lots of love
    Tilly xxx

  4. That's so sad. Things happen so quick. We can't let our kids out of our sight, but it's hard to keep an eye on them every second.
