I am completely, utterly, head over heels in love with my little girl at the moment. Now come on, be honest, although you always love your children, with the power and intensity of a thousand screaming monkeys, you're not always in love with them. Sometimes, given the choice between the two, you'd take the monkeys.

My mantra, inherited from my mum, is "It's just a phase". "A phase" being generally a bad thing. Well Matilda's current phase is lovely. No doubt it too will pass but I shall celebrate this loveliness while it lasts.

This morning when she got up we gave each other what is known round here as a "big squeezy hug". I told her I loved big squeezy hugs in the morning. She said, so did she. And kisses. And caresses. Both of which she proceeded to lavish upon me.

Truly blessed am I.


  1. Could not agree more; what a charmer!!!!

  2. i hope this "phase" lasts a few more years ;)
    She's always been lovely in my books.


Many thank yous if you're taking the time to leave a comment. You are most lovely in my sight.
