If there’s one thing I appreciate about going back to work, it’s that my weekends have become gold again.
I really look forward to every waking moment and I really, really appreciate the time we spend together as a family. Not that I didn’t before, but it’s like having a piece of really sweet fruit only at a certain part of the week. You savour it a lot more.
Today, I watched my child play with such delight. She took her hammer from her wooden toolset and ‘cooked’ her nuts and bolts in her wooden pot on her wooden stove. She thoughtfully placed the lid of the pot on top of the hammer to ‘cook’ her nuts and bolts. I also discovered that she enjoys the smell of freshly laundered clothes. She kept taking clothes off the clothes rack in the living room and when I asked what she was up to, she brought me a freshly laundered bib and made me take a whiff.
It’s all so silly but it sure makes my day.
Here she is with her best pal, Rosco….
