One of The Most Priceless Gifts of Parenting.

One of The Most Priceless Gifts of ParentingMiss Six has been hidden out back, crafting with her friend this weekend. It’s a new thing.

Wanting to slip away with just one other person.

Escape the bombardment of a crowd.

Exhale and take it easy.

No competition, just conversation.

One of The Most Priceless Gifts of ParentingNo loudness, just laughter.

No politics just possibilities.

 

Of course they didn’t want me anywhere near them! But I sneaked in a few cheeky shots. Hung out from the windows above them. Watched them a little through the glass – at a distance. Then left them to it.

One of The Most Priceless Gifts of ParentingI love seeing her in her element.

Making things.

Giggling.

Effortlessly enjoying a friends company.

Throwing her head back in fits of laughter.

 

One of The Most Priceless Gifts of ParentingThe unprecedented warmth and joy in my heart seeing my daughter this happy.

It has to be one of the most priceless gifts of parenting.

  1. Ahh this is lovely, there’s something so beautiful about watching your own kids when they don’t know. Seeing them acting totally naturally and independently, totally engrossed in what it is they are doing!

  2. It is great, isn’t it? Last Wednesday, Crevette had a friend over and as they were upstairs chatting and having fun, I listened to them for a bit. They sounded so grown up and happy! Definitely a #MagicMoment!
