It’s funny how different your relationship is one on one with your children. Betsy and I suddenly find ourselves with two days a week together. Nearly seven hours to fill.
In all honesty it isn’t since Milla was one that I’ve had so much time with just one child. I’m finding it quite unfamiliar and wonderful at the same time.
And we have fun on our adventures. Moving at her pace for once, following her lead with no need to negotiate with siblings. Finally the youngest can spread her wings and find her place in the world.
So here’s to the last years before school. To days of discovery, silliness and cuddles. To finding our rhythm and taking our time. Here’s to my girl and her crazy, fierce and wild ways.
