Well as I just basked in the love I felt from this special little girl I said to her "what would you like to do?" but still thinking of the many chores and activities still to be completed, and the fact I had just gotten Trahaearn to sleep and thus had some 'clear time' so to speak.
However I looked into those loving and trusting eyes as she answered "can you do some drawing with me....some chalk drawing' and knew that this was one of those moments I am always talking about- those family moments that build memories and I knew I would draw with her.
The wonderful advantage of doing creative activities with one child is that I know that the other children benefit from this. As soon as Moran and Corbyn saw us drawing together they decided it was much more fun than what they had been playing previously.

The drawing session lasted only about 30 mins but at the end of that time I was thrilled that Myffy was so happy to have spent that time with me and after we packed up the chalk and the boards she held my hand as we went off to tend to the other mundane tasks, and me how did I feel now, well my smile said it all I think.
I was one happy mummy!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
