Right today I am trying to get the day right to join in with all sorts of cool people and the things they are loving. One day I might even manage to get the little button activated!
This week I am so loving and grateful for Flip. Obviously I adore both my boys but today it’s for Flip.
As a side note this is not supposed to be one of those my child is so much more wonderful than anyone else’s type of post (if it goes that way The Atlas will pull me up because he doesn’t like that vibe). This is a ‘this is MY son and he gives me joy’ kind of post!
This week Flip who sleeps or has a rest each day – and my am I SO grateful for that – woke up one afternoon with ‘Mum there’s a ladybird on my pillow’ and there was.
He was so excited and we took it carefully out to the garden. I love that he is totally enamoured with ladybugs and butterflies and chrysalis at the moment.
The next day after a rest he came out and told me he could count to 100 now and he did all the way from 1 to 100. My little number cruncher.
And yesterday when I was tired I told him I was having a rest too. So when he finished his rest at 2pm and saw I was asleep he played quietly in the lounge until I got up at 2.30. He is like that as a personality – thoughtful and considerate and I think that is really beautiful.
So along with loving Oriental Parade in Wellington and little boys who have the energy of a stadium of 20,000 screaming fans, this week I am LOVING my 4-year-old.
Because he is my boy and I am proud of who is growing into.
What are you loving this week? Check out the general appreciation vibe here.
