Loved From the Beginning
There is an episode in The God of Small Things where the twins Rahel and Estha (who by now are getting pretty envious of the precocious Sophie Mol) remark on their young cousin being Loved From the Beginning (emphasis on the caps)..the term sums up so much doesnt it? Of a child being assured that s/he is loved and valued unconditionally, rather than for good grades, cute remarks, good behaviour...of being really appreciated and cherished. Of course some of us need that kind of validation when we grow up (present company no exception)...hope I remember that when Im a mom.
today's blog is to assure Ms Niece and the Three Musketeers that they have ALWAYS been numero uno in my list.
