    Babies Buddhism

    My children are 11 & 13 years now & I had forgotten how wonderful babies can be. This weekend my sister has come to visit with her gorgeous, six month old daughter (& husband & 3 year old son).

    They have all gone to park & I am here getting Sunday lunch ready (a roasty), but this morning (and yesterday) I have had many hours to hold, cuddle & play with my neice. I have been struck how she sits with such a straight back & gazes at the world with such a calm acceptance - it has been a lovely experience & one I hope I can take to the cushion.

    Just noodling (again )

      :lol: I contrast my (sometimes not so compassionate) thoughts/feelings for my nearly 17 year old daughter with the ones for my 5 month old son :lol:

      The little one, Beren, is fascinating to watch as he discovers the world, gazes at things, I know not, in wonder. An almost un-describable innocence and joy.

      Tomorrow is day one of full-time Daddy Day care for me. Wish me luck :wink: I'm hoping I can sneak in a day time sit when he's sleeping or may be I'll just join him in being one with sleepdom :lol:
