All the Small Things…Bonding

When you are a Stay-At-Home-Mum, the small things end up becoming really important. You focus on small things, whether wonderful or frustrating. When I saw that MummyNeverSleeps was starting a linky called ‘All the Small Things’, I knew instantly what I wanted to write about.

After I had my daughter, almost six years ago, I informed Husband that we would not be having any more children. I had hated being pregnant. Those first five months of constant, all-day morning sickness had been horrendous. And the c-section at the end of the nine months was no ‘welcome to the world baby’ party. 

But Husband tried and tried, and finally convinced me that we were not as complete as I had said. I can confidently say that I am right about most things, but this time it was Husband’s turn to be right. With my second pregnancy I had six months of morning sickness as well as pelvic girdle pain, finished off with another c-section. But it was worth it, as my darling baby boy really did complete our family.

There is a four-year age difference between my children. Moozles had just turned four when Dubz was born. I had worried that in addition to the difference in gender, the age gap would make it tough for them to get along and play. But I needn’t have worried. Just about everyday, I see them playing and laughing and my heart is filled with such happiness. During long drives, they play silly games and Moozles sings and tickles Dubz. At home they run around and hide and chase. When we walk to/from school, Walker often wants to hold his sister’s hand (she walks while he sits in his buggy). 

Everyday I look at them in wonder and their bond warms my heart an infinite amount. And I am so thankful for this small thing, which is so big.
