Inspiration words used
Reading, Together

My Journalling is on the back of the page

Just when I thought I was too old to fall in love again, you were born and I was instantly besotted.  Who would have thought the smell of a newly minted bubba would revive such fiercely protective instincts; that your first fleeting smile could melt my heart so completely?

I panicked slightly when Pa and I were invited to care for you one day a week.  We wondered how we would manage a little one after so many years, but you made it easy with your gentle spirit and natural tendency to please others.  How could I have forgotten that when children are loved unconditionally and allowed to play, everything else just falls into place. 

My world is full of wonder and curiosity when viewed through the your eyes.  Every day is an adventure, discovering new tastes and textures, exploring the garden and listening to the magpies and kookaburras. You are such an observant wee bubba, soaking up information like a sponge. Nothing escapes your attention and your memory is phenomenal.    

If you are sad or tired you can always be distracted and consoled by reading a book together. You love to turn the pages and name the objects in the pictures.

You’ve brought light, love and laughter into our lives and we feel so blessed to be an integral part of your childhood.
