"I SO BOOTIFUL, MUMMY"


...says the girl with the nappy hat and paint moustache.

It is a delight and a privilege to raise this sweet daughter of God. It can be so easy to be overwhelmed when I think of the next 16 years and the worries and busyness and heartaches that no doubt will come. But little moments - painting together or sharing honey yoghurt or talking about how green (and every colour under the sun) is so lovely and her favourite, or her sitting on my lap and pushing away my hair, saying "you sooo bootiful, mummy" - these moments remind me that it will always be worth it, and that this is the greatest thing I will ever do.

"There is no role more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood"
