bronbates 'are you tired? you seem stressed.' one of the great things about having more than one child is that while one of them might be testing the upper limits of your patience, generosity and basic will to live, another might be melting your heart.
'you're the best mum,' the kiddo said today. #neededtohearit #parentingoutloud #teenagersomg

bronbates will they remember all this when they're grown? the laughs on slow mornings, the puddles to their knees, the raised voices of trouble, the cooing tones of peace. the love poured out. over and over and over, just for them. #tulgeywoodlife #childhoodunplugged #parentingoutloud #nationalpark 2w

bronbates “for what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. there’s no time limit. start whenever you want. you can change or stay the same. there are no rules to this thing. we can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” from the curious case of benjamin button film | inspired by the 1922 short story by f. scott fitzgerald 3w
