Daughter Diaries 60 | The Open Home

Dear Blossom, in a few days time I will be traveling to the other side of the planet and to say that this thought doesn’t fill my mamas heart with a little anxiety would be a lie – hence all the cleaning! I would be much obliged if you could water the tomato plant whilst I’m gone, remind Daddy to put out the recycling on Sunday evening and oh! please try not to lose your first tooth! I know you’re ever so eager to have a gappy smile but I on the other hand am in no rush for you to grow up and would be somewhat sad to miss out on such a momentous milestone. Dear Bubbles, you teach some great life lessons. One being that if you see a dandy-puff at the side of the path then you should stop to blow it no matter how late for a coffee date you may be. Thanks for reminding me to walk a slower pace in life, to savour the everyday ordinary moments, to not sweat the small stuff and to find beauty amongst the weeds. Dearest Daughters, may you find pleasure in walking slowly through life, finding joy in all circumstances and beauty in unlikely places.

When was the last time you stopped to blow a dandy-puff?
