I’m not going to lie this has not been a happy week for me, there is a lot of sadness in my family at the moment. But what is great about having children is, they bring the light into your dark. They bring laughter and they give the best hugs, even if they don’t know how much you needed one right at that moment.
So, whilst most of week has been filled with more sadness than I knew was possible, my girls have still brought me lots of happy moments and kept me going.
Lets talk happy moments…
When the girls got out of the bath and Holly sat on Alice’s lap for a cuddle. Alice wrapped the towel around them both, as she didn’t want Holly to get cold. She really is the best big sister.
Our neighbour dropped round a parcel they took in for us and I opened it my mistake to discover my birthday present…oops! When Andy came home, Alice stood with her hands on her hips and told him that our neighbour had brought me the present and they would have to go to the shops and buy me something else. It was so funny!!
Through the sadness of this week, it has reminded me how brilliant my family is and I am so lucky to have such an awesome one.
Holly and I have been going to toddler sense for a while now and to see her grow with confidence in the group activities makes my heart swell. She is such a happy little girl and a joy to be around.
It was Alice’s preschool birthday party and Holly was able to come too. It was lovely watching Alice take Holly’s hand to show her around and where she plays. They even got to have a ride in the fire engine, happy girls!
This weekend it’s my birthday and Fathers’ Day, so I think a lot of cake will be eaten and maybe a few presents to unwrap.
