Thanks Mum and Dad

There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

I feel like my folks have a sixth sense when it comes to our sanity!  Julian has been quite the handful lately, pushing our boundaries on an emotional level and challenging our parental authority on a daily basis. Yay for pre-teens!

Maybe there’s an underlying exhaustion when we speak, or maybe Mum’s can hear the tremor in your voice easier than most.

Whatever it is, the unexpected offer to have Julian stay for a week (until his sleep test next Tuesday) was exactly what we all needed.  It’s gives us a chance to focus more on Ayan, Ella-Shae and Boey, and it’s gives Julian a chance to have some time to himself away from the pressures of younger siblings and a kitten that wants to play at 2 o’clock in the morning!

Thank you, Mum and Dad.  You are - and have forever been – our rock, our shoulder to cry on and our bolt hole when life gets to be too much.

We all love you more than you could ever possibly realise.
