It's the little things

I'm not the one preaching motherhood above everything. Sometimes I can feel really trapped in daily routines, playdates at our house when I planned to do other things and mount everests of laundry. But then I find the grocery list on which our youngest (6y) added some of her favourites (peanutbutter, candy and cake). My mood immediately switched to 'grateful'. Or when I see what book our history loving eldest (8y) chose from the library. Such strong interests and opinions she has. A proud feeling comes up. Then I start setting the table (again) a bit happier.

Ooh, ik ga dat boek gelijk opzoeken. Ik heb ook zo'n achtjarige geschiedenisfan!

Herkenbaar! Wat betreft die boeken, bij ons zijn ze nog niet zover. Maar wie weet in de toekomst. Ach, wie het kleine niet (waard)eert is het grote niet weerd.
Fijn weekend.
Groetjes, Anne-Marie

Enig, ben ik veel te laat of kan er nog "geswapt" worden! Groet, Helmi
