A heart melting moment


Just wanted to share a lovely moment with you all, which has ended my week well…

During my Theraplay course I learnt a new version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star that the therapist often uses in sessions. He suggested we try it with our kids, so tonight, I did. It goes like this:

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
What a special boy you are
With your nice brown hair and your rosy cheeks
Big blue eyes from which you peek
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
What a special boy you are

The smile on Mini’s face was a real delight. He didn’t say it, but it was clear to see that he felt special.

We all then sang it to Dollop, obviously changing words where appropriate. Then during a lovely cuddle, with lots of eye contact, Mini sang it back to me. *heart melts*

  1. That's lovely. How wonderful that he responded to it. Special moments help the harder ones seem more bearable don't they?

      Good luck! Hope he likes it.
