Why is it that my eldest has finished school for the year and I think to myself, next week I will take my 3 boys to get a photo with Santa. However…..
Over the weekend my 3 year old has bumped, bruised and battered himself. First thing Saturday morning he managed to slip in the shower and give himself a 20 cm egg on his forehead, and this morning when going to the toilet he managed to slip also (how I do not know) but split his chin on the bowl.
There were many tears and now with a healing chin and purplish forehead I am still going to head to our local Father Christmas and get the photo – for it does not have to be perfect, rather a moment in time and later in life I will look back and think…gee he was clumsy at that age!
And if we wait for the perfect moment in time we wouldn’t have the memories of today.
