I’m sure for every parent it’s different, because every child, every parent, every life is different. But for me, some things just still gets to me more than others. Some in a good way… and some in a not-so-good way. Some things bring back good memories, and others trigger the tears.
Just being mom
Mother Theresa said “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.”
Every now and again I love to just let-it-go with my kids. To have a silly moment with Anika, just being carefree – forgetting about her shunt, her wheelchair, her therapy. Or a few minutes of full-on, hardcore play with Reuben – without worrying about work, what he could break or the noise we’re making – he can be VERY loud sometimes.
On Sunday afternoon, my 5 year old daughter, Anika, decided to paint my nails. Those of you who know me will know that I usually stick to natural, rather dull colours – but Anika on the other hand… Needless to say, I ended up with very bright pink nail polish – only on the front end tips of my nails 🙂
