@ _jessification_: In the rule book of how to parent. Getting them to bed is up there, it’s the Mecca. But how on earth are you supposed to put them to bed when they are the only thing you want to talk to, explore the world with, read with, laugh with, dance with, eat with, breathe with? This girl. No matter how many times I think I could be messing it up (too much work, not enough us, not enough of anything) she shows me that it’s not about what I do or don’t do, it’s about the journey and where we are going. It’s all about her. I could mess up a million times and she’d still sing a song in Tesco’s about me being the best mummy in the world. I’m down with that. But I’m also down with making the time to appreciate and to make the most of how awesome #mydearlilly is. She is such a lesson, such a sunshine. . . she has my capacity for smiling and for love and curiosity - she is an absolute fascination to me. .
