Bonding with family is one of those things you can never get enough of.
Whether it’s listening to some music together, having a healthy debate, a light-hearted laugh, a sincere d&m, or even being able to share some tears without judgement…
Or, all of the above.
Tonight’s highlight was baby girl bonding with her cousin. Although 11 years separates them, they found common ground today. And I discovered it, when baby girl went from –
“Mum come in this room and watch a movie with me” – to –
Huh? Why wasn’t she bugging me anymore?
Because she found a viewing partner in her cousin.
Matilda, the first real life-child geared film (as opposed to animated child film) that baby girl first watched at primary school and subsequently has become fascinated with, was the same movie my nephew faintly remembered from his childhood… and wanted to rediscover once again.
It was beautiful to watch them engrossed in the classic tale, dance to the music soundtrack and just be silly in the moment.
We got as much joy out of watching them as they did watching the film. 📽😍
