In amongst all the picking up of stuff and cleaning of surfaces, body parts and clothes that is part of being a mum; there are those moments when time seems to stop and it's just you and them. I just happened to catch Little Miss L when she was waking from her nap - still in that lovely sleepy state when her eyes look exactly the same as they did when she was a little baby and we have a cuddle and lay next to each other, nose to nose for while, looking into each others eyes. We share an unspoken joke and giggle; she laughs at my raised eyebrows and wrinkled nose and trys to copy me. There's another lovely cuddle and we're off downstairs to carry on our day.
These moments last a few minutes, they're getting far less frequent as she grows up but surely, this is what it's all about.
