Caleb visited for the morning and Donné had two willing assistants to help her bake cupcakes. I quite enjoyed this story from the day…
Summer is approaching which means that it is warm enough to go swimming with Grace at the gym again. We get to spend time just having fun and playing in the water. It is special time together that I really enjoy. I cherish it and hope to keep doing it for many years.
Grace is quite a sensitive child and recently went through an extra sensitive time when visiting with people and going out. As a result I've been a little anxious recently when going out because I'm not sure how she is going to react. So it made my heart extra happy when yesterday she enjoyed her time playing in the sand with Fiona and Ben and today had loads of fun at the Bradshaw's jumping on the trampoline, riding bikes and scooters, drawing and generally just pottering around. She had so much fun today that even though she had a short (but late) afternoon nap, she was sleeping in 5 minutes this evening – Kim we may just come and visit everyday 🙂
We are fragile as parents. We get worn down from things like waking up in the middle of the night, or just the persistent resistance of a two year old. Sometimes it wears us down to the point of snapping, and other times we manage to haul it all back together. When we fall apart we feel guilty and when we get it right we are proud of ourselves.
