The lengths we are prepared to go.... By Kate

As a parent, sooner or later you realise that you would take a bullet for your child, should it ever (god forbid) become necessary. In the thankful absence of such dramatic events, there are other smaller yet no less significant acts of self-sacrifice that happen on a daily basis.

Today, Theo and I carried Rosie in her buggy down four storeys' worth of stairs and up again (cursed lift on the blink...) so she could have her essential nap. Theo elected to do the buggy walk, so he got himself appropriately dressed for the persistent rain.
I think it's fair to say that whatever remained of his dignity after months spent wearing a flowery backpack has now entirely disappeared.

The things we do for our beloved daughter.
