The Best Bit
“Oh, but she never wanted James to grow a day older or Cam either. These two she would have liked to keep for ever just as the way they were, demons of wickedness, angels of delight, never to see them grow up into long-legged monsters.”
- Virginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse
Truly, without a shadow of a doubt, I know that being their mother is the most amazing thing that I will ever experience. This here, right now - as well as all that is to come until they leave for their independent lives - is the best bit. I am both extremely luck and incredibly grateful. I will try to live up to the task.
