It hurts me so much to see my children learning the harsh lessons of life, I want to wrap them up and protect them but I have to let them grow and making mistakes, realising the world is not always a rosey place is all part of that.
But it hurts me like a knife cutting into my heart.
Sometimes I think I’m more affected than they are and i wonder if that’s not one of the miracles of parenthood, that we can take some of their pain and absorb it for them. Gosh I do hope so.
Extra big cuddles tonight and when I come to think of it we’re overdue a sleepover movie night with something we all love playing on the projector and snacks… healthy snacks of course.
Yay, perfect opportunity to try sweet treat healthy flap jack recipe I saw on another blog using a little peanut butter, manuka honey and delicious organic oats and to chop up a whole heap of fruit into snackable shapes and sizes. We shall work through the mountain of the stuff that I have bought.
