Another weekend draws to a close, finishing with the men’s final of the Australian Open. It looks like it will be a marathon match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. I don’t have a preference for who wins, I am just looking forward to a great match. After tonight I will be able to get back to some earlier bedtimes. This may reduce the dark circles under my eyes, and help to prevent the inevitable yawning before lunchtime each day.
New photos on Facebook of my youngest grandchild. Summer is now 5 months old. Already!! And sitting up in her highchair tasting new foods. She pulls some funny faces as she tries new tastes. Just love her to bits!!
My daughter sent me a link today for a blog post which made me smile. It celebrates the “Joys” of motherhood. It is a post all mothers (and probably grandmothers) will relate to. How many times have you smugly said the words “When I’m a parent I’ll never ______.”? And then you had children!!! Ha!!! I am sure mothers (and some fathers) everywhere will smile and nod when they read these “now I get it” moments.
Do you, or did you have, moments like these with your children? Were you the perfect parent until you had kids of your own?
Have a wonderful week everyone.
