What a piece of work is man!

We took the children to the soft-play centre this afternoon, (what Phoebe refers to as "the Bouncing") and I was noticing how well the children there were using their whole bodies which put me in mind of this Shakespeare quote:-

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
a god! (Except I always think of the song version from the musical Hair)

So good to 'see' you over at my 'place'--thanks so much for your comments! Your babies are darling!

Congrats on the new house--and, yes, it will bring some changes to friendships. Some more bloggers have left some great thoughts on moving and friendships--

I'm enjoying perusing your posts--looks like you all know how to have fun!!

Shakespeare and Hair! As good a combination as milk and cookies, if you ask me. I bet the Bard himself would have been proud of the lyrics of Good Morning Starshine.

So nice to meet you- yes, it's true, our children really do come out as their own little people with their own plans, ideas, and a path just for them.
You can feel my pain with two c-sections! Recovery stinks!
But the result, that perfect little person is so well worth it. Thanks for stopping by-
Your kiddos are absolutely adorable, by the way!
