Work has been quite consuming this week. I have felt guilty knowing that my parents are at home looking after the kids and have wanted to be there with them to share in the fun. Luckily I had a day off today and have no more midweek shifts only a few weekend ones between now and the kids going back to school.

To celebrate my new found freedom we went to the park today to burn off some energy and laugh. I got on the play equipment with the kids because there was no-one else around to see as the kids tried to counter balance my weight by all getting on the other end of the see-saw!

How do kids manage to lift your spirits just when you need it? I think it must be the sheer distraction of not being able to think of other things when surrounded by their "busyness" Their laughter and my sore behind was tonic for my soul.

  1. I could have had a terrible day, but to get home to my kids and their laughter, the best pick me up ever!! They are older now, but they still have that magic. :)

  2. Love this picture! Kids are my medicine! I don't care what kind of a day I am having, give me one little squeeze or one funny remark, and I am cured. Hope you are enjoying your parents.
