This is my house. It's pretty ordinary, right?
Yep, but something happened today that was a real smack-you-in-the-face moment. So, sun shining, reading my book, soaking up the quiet. I can hear birds cheeping. I must have a nest in the roof as Mummy and Daddy bird were constantly flying off for food. When they returned.... WOW! The noise those babies made! The sheer happiness they felt at their parent returning, or possibly the food they brought 😂
Parenting spans the species. Children rejoice at their parents appearance, regardless of how long it's been. They feel comfortable and safe with their parents present and can be 100% themselves. Which means that we get the love, the tears, the tantrums, the cuddles and the shitty attitude. They don't have to pretend when they are with us. I think most people know this, but I believed it today!
Nature is a wonderful thing ❤
