Contentment is

  • jumping on a trampoline and not having to worry about the wobbles in front of an almost three year old
  • watching in awe as a plain little white sweety gets magically transformed into a froggie
  • being scolded for making waves in the pool made of a tinker bell blankie
  • lying in bed and having my hand kissed by the softest, smallest mouth but knowing it comes from the biggest heart
  • making cheese sandwiches at bed time to be placed on the barbie plate
  • singing ‘rain rain go away’ while dancing under an umbrella in the lounge
  • hearing the indoor rainbow being described as ‘pink, purple, pink and green with hearts on it’
  • being kicked out of the bed because its Mommy time,  I can so appreciate that
  • knowing I can experience these things and smile, even though it makes me miss my own little girl so much

I am so lucky.  I am so happy.  I am so bittersweetly sad.

Most of all, I am so thankful to share a part of this wonderful little human and thankful to be allowed to share a part of myself with her.

    little girls are the best.

    all that pink and glitter and make up and high heels.

    Doesn’t it suck to grow up?
