kaleidescope

:: friends visit
:: brother leads littlest one astray (getting stuck in the laundry shoot)
:: hot chocolate and drawing

From tea parties to harsh words to apologies to night time drawing sessions. I wake each new day with hopes and plans and before I realise the day is rushing ahead of me, taking twists & turns that I did not foresee...how to navigate these twisty byways I would rather not travel, especially when my own choices led me there, especially when they are the result of a lack of patience, a harsh word, a minor meltdown. The way these days unravel is such a kaleidoscope, such a mish mash of moods, energy, chaos, creativity, fun and the not so fun. At the end of the day when I'm tucking those bundles into thier beds and giving them 'one more kiss', my body is exhausted, yes, but my heart is full. Full of all the colourful moments that make up our days some a little brighter than others but all of them a kaleidescope of us.
