Happiness is……………….

Today my little boy Harry sat up to the table for dinner, as he does everyday, and he ate his dinner, as he does everyday but today, I took time, and I watched him.

I watched as he devoured his fish and turned and asked his Daddy for more.

I watched as he picked up his baby broccoli and took bite after bite until each piece was eaten.

I watched as he put his potato and sauce on his spoon and into his mouth.

I watched as he got fed up with the spoon and turned to using his hands instead.

I watched all of this happen as he chatted and smiled and played and asked for more.

I watched and I felt happy.

I’m sure I could feel my heart swell with pride at this amazing little boy, with his chubby hands and his cheeky smile enjoyed a meal that I had cooked for him.

A meal that his brother refused to eat and his sisters only ate parts of.

Harry absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed his dinner and I felt happy.

So what did we have?

We had baked cod, young tender stems of broccoli and baby potatoes with a delicious homemade satay sauce, made using whole peanut butter, the ingredients being simply peanuts.

And my baby boy loved it,

Happiness is sweet, simple pleasures.
