Oh to be four!
The highlights of this weekend for me were in seeing Magoo live it up.
Whilst most of my time was spent 'behind the scenes' or juggling the rest of the family's needs
- grocery shopping, cleaning, feeding the troops, preparing, planning and parenting mostly solo
- his was spent in the moment.
With swimming lessons, a trip to the beach, midday naps,
a neighbourhood progressive dinner, a school fete and an afternoon under the sprinklers
- this boy's weekend was a beauty, if you ask me.
It's so satisfying to reflect and take stock of just how enjoyable his childhood is.
I may not be a 'Supermum', a glamour queen or a domestic goddess -
but I like to think that I shine at putting my heart into making simple 'Magoo memories'.
He isn't indulged and I'm (apparently too) strict -
but I want nothing more than for Magoo (and Missi) to look back on his (her) childhood with so much to smile about.
In fact, I want that for every child.
What age would you choose to be?
