S3 asks me, ‘Mummy, can I paint my cot?’. Our gorgeous little wooden cot!! Do I let go and let her freely express herself with her possessions, or teach her values of looking after her stuff carefully? Decision of the day, “letting go”. She loved just sitting there painting.
Meanwhile, behind me …. Z5 is flying. We have this big, green bean bag given to us by friends lying around. So I decide to sell it! Threw it onto the trampoline and now it is quite a feature there! And brings squeals of laughter as little body bombs smack into it.
