Toddlers are the absolute masters of expressing joy at the simple things in life. Today I sat outside with her while I was cutting up strips of fabric for a Christmas garland. Of course, her response was “For me? Oh, THANK you!”
And then she dived in and surrendered to the pleasure of the fabric stash … at one point she lay down among the scraps singing “I’m swimming mum! I’m swimming!”
Oh I’ve wanted to do this many times ….!
