Words that mould you as a parent

There are moments as a parent that mould you, but when your two year old is sick and gagging because of a post nasal drip, at 2 in the morning, you tend to listen closely to what they say. Or so I have just learnt…

So when Zoë says the following to sentences to you after throwing up it moulds you and breaks you and teaches you something about this little human with a little heart.

“Thank you guys” while we helping her, as she looks at her mom and dad, not wanting to lie down because she has worked out sitting has provided better relief than lying.
That just breaks you!

And …

“Don’t kiss me daddy” as I try giving her a peck on the forehead. “I don’t want to dirty your pajamas if I throw up”

The absolute caring nature of this special little girl, the caring nature that 9 out of 10 times is worried about others …
worried about the little baba crying, the worry and concern about why something is like it is,
and the way she looked at her mommy when Robyn was in absolute pain a couple of weeks ago after an operation.

And so I learn from my daughter
