Thanks to a wonderful idea of Kate’s from picklebums and following a ‘stroll’ through my albums I’ve discovered a great deal of things I need to remember. Here’s just a few…
I need to remember:
- This week of interrupted sleep due to kids with colds is nothing compared the complete and utter exhaustion of having a new-born
- That my 5-year-old can’t walk through a shopping centre. He has to skip or jump from one pattern to another in the floor and invariably will fall flat on his face at least twice during a 20 minute visit – but he always bounces back up. And while I’m growling at him, often people are smiling at him and his happy, life-giving energy
- Squidge getting a book out of the school library because he liked it and he thought his little brother would too. And then he sat down and read him the story – twice
- DB going to a parenting seminar wanting to make a big difference in the life of his boys – and then encouraging his peers to do the same
Thanks Kate. After a hectic tiring week, it’s good to take stock.
