Last week I wrote about a revelation I had during one of many moments my toddler tornado took to the living room. That is, despite the drain from a very early morning start and a hyperactive toddler redecorating our living room with food crumbs and toy parts, I can choose to focus on the pleasures in parenting.
It was a conversation that I had with my husband, and one that I enjoyed writing for the blog. I was then pleasantly surprised by the beautiful responses from other mothers sharing their own little gestures with their children.
I was touched by how open and intimate these connections were and I couldn’t help capturing these moments between mother and child.
This is my little gesture to them.
