I had a rare moment with Little Owlet today. Tiny had gone off for a nap and we were all alone. Big Owlet was away on a sleepover, so we had a little window of time, just Little and me. These days I'm looking at her and she is SO grown up! SO independent! Most days she's reaching for friends and new excitement to fill her days, where once she'd rather just hang out
So today I stopped to play. With her. Just for a little while. The day slowed to a halt while we discussed platypus's flatness and how he should really be eating more seaweed gems to perk himself up a bit, and how Pooh should probs cut back on the honey sandwiches, just between us two... It didn't take much. Just a rug and our lunches served on special plates... But it filled her heart, made her giggle and her eyes twinkle... And in a week I've found challenging and exhausting, it made me happy too.
What have you done to make yourself happy today? Did you stop to play?
