My Heart is Full

Congratulations Lil!
While I am writing this my son is sitting close to me slurping his share of the instant curry noodles. The gravy, runny and thin, the noodles slightly soggy with an egg poached in the centre makes staying indoor in this rainy season such a treat. Come evening, heavy showers clean our porch diligently. Big puddles decorate our grassy patch making them the perfect natural pool for sneaky feet to trample on. In the background, behind the screen of my laptop, the bigger kids are throwing the big cushions on the floor. One has dressed up as Batman, the other is stretching the skipping rope as the main obstacle. From the looks of it, they are probably making some sort of a safety net to cushion their precarious jumps.

 As I look on, I can't help but wonder about my own safety net. Have I created one for the kids if ever something were to happen to me. Would they be alright in my absence? There will be many falls in real life and if I could not be there for each one of them, the best thing to do is to equip them with a good pair of feet. So whenever they fall, they would fall strong and jump back to safety.

...and grooming them into Batman is a good start. :o)

I am listening to this song below with the kids. Part 0:46 is so so so so true.;o)
