Little People


I'm late to post today because I stayed up late watching Stepmom on TV and crying my heart out! I'm not sure whether it's because I recently became one, but I find that my heartstrings get pulled very easily now that I am a parent; I empathise so much with all Mums and Dads. This movie is super sad but really quite beautiful and would resonate with anyone who is involved in the adventure of bringing up little people, be they natural or step parents.
I've so much on my mind to do with parenting and cherishing our little ones these days as my good friend's little girl had a terrible accident one week ago and is still critical... please send some good vibes to lovely little Molly if you can.

So, back to the movie...Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts and Ed Harris each give a powerhouse performance that left me sobbing and with swollen eyes I had to sneak in to give Lu a kiss before I went to bed; I was bursting with love for her!

I'm so looking forward to her life and to her and me having fun, dressing up and dancing to Motown songs together!

So, here's to parenting; one of the hardest things you'll ever do, the most worrying, the most exhausting but definitely the best.

P.S. Happy Monday! and the winner of The Friday Freebie is Fiona.

Hi Ellie,
I watched Stepmom too, even though I've seen it about a dozen times. It never fails to move me, even though I am not a mother. Fabulous cast, of course Susan Sarandon blows me away.
Happy Monday y'all :)

Wahoo! That's made a very blue Monday much brighter :-)

I also totally agree on the parenting front, beautifully put. My little girl already raids my make up bag, tells me I'm pretty if I wear a new top or do my hair differently and exclaims WOW if I show her something new and shiny I have bought. She also loves trying on my clothes, even if the tops come to her toes, and loves picking out pretty dresses to wear xx
