Delamere

Last month we took our daughter for a hike through Delamere forest. Daddy and daughter enjoyed stomping through mud and laughing at dogs while I spent some much needed quality time with my D7000.

730 days of beautiful chaos

730 days

17,520 hours

1,051,200 minutes

63,072,000 seconds

of pure, unmitigated chaos.


Time these last two years has never been hushed.


I can't eat without having little finger holes poked into my food.

My floors never stay crumb or toy free for more than 5 minutes.

Ditto with my clothes- fresh on today? Must be time for sticky fingerprints to decorate them then!

I can never just sit and hear quiet.

I haven't seen the bottom of my washing basket since the beginning of the above calculations.

I still haven't caught up on sleep I lost since the beginning of the above calculations.

And,

I more often than not am accompanied to the bathroom. Nice.



BUT


I also never go an hour without a kiss or a cuddle.

I always have a little friend around me all day to keep me company.

I find myself with a little hand to hold throughout the day, just because.

I get to play dress up and do cute hairstyles.

I look into a striking pair of sky blue eyes and see total love.

And,

I never have to worry about being bored!


Because although life is chaos, it is a beautiful, enriching and enlightening chaos that I can't help but rejoice in.


And it's all because of this one small, strong-willed, unyielding yet perfectly sweet, dainty, whirlwind of a girl!











Happy 2nd birthday to my dolly girl! Now bring on the potty training!!!
