Chasing, warning and be loved.

1. Alec hoots and shrieks with laughter as he runs his odd shuffly toddler run, chasing Nick through the park.

2. As I am pulling jasmine tendrils off the wall our neighbour shouts a helpful warning about a tangled cable.

3. Alec has a meltdown about his snack. Too much choice? Too little choice? Wrong options? Who knows: not me, and I don't think he does either. The moment when he reaches up and asks me for comfort.

  1. From laughter to meltdown, it does come quickly at times. But then swings back equally fast.

    1. Don't they just! I think sometimes it swings back when I don't deal with the original meltdown cause -- quite often it comes down to 'I want a sit-down on the sofa and a cuddle'.
