An Early Morning Thought

There are times when watching my children do something completely ordinary encapsulates both the innocence of their childhood and my wonder at watching them grow.  I often wish at these times that I had a video camera or some way of capturing the moment so I can remember the amazement I felt at these simple things, but how often does one have the camera poised at 7.30am in the morning.

There is no way that words can explain how it looked watching Hamish run naked down the path in the early morning sun to do a wee in the garden. Or how he looked as he stood there trying to get the hang of position and flow. How when he turned around the look of pride on his face out shone the sun and how his little wet feet tripped and stumbled as he ran back into the house.

I hope I remember some of these times when I am old and looking back at my life, they are the joyful parts of my day.

Was that the same expression as the one he was wearing when he wee'd on my carpet that time?

Because I'm going to be remembering that when I'm old.

I'm never going to hear the end of that am I xx

Nope. That's the problem with having a best friend (and a child who wees on people's carpets)!

See? I managed to work it into conversation again!

;)

Don't worry: once he gets old enough to understand, I'll use it to embarrass Hamish, instead.
