Wow. Can you believe it?! Yesterday my babies turned one. One whole year!
Yesterday I wrote a letter to them and today I have been sitting down and taking stock. Forgive me while I bore you with pictures….
From their first day to their most recent they’ve been with me every day. I think the longest time I’ve spent apart from them was the day I spent at the Self Publishing Conference back in April. A hard day, that’s for sure, no matter how informative it was.
I used to measure pleasure and pride by my latest piece of writing. These days I measure it by Michael’s latest attempts to say ‘duck’ or Leon’s last successful navigation of the stairs.
After a year I’ve learned:
-bum sniffing is a perfectly normal way to assess a nappy
-that I’m stronger than I look
-so are babies!
-bath water actually tastes ok
-everything is edible if you try hard enough
-boogies are made to be picked
You may think this is all a bit nuts -and I promise a return to our usual programming after this – but honestly, these are important facts. 🙂
