We went to a soft play centre. Then we went to macdonalds drive thru and then the beach to eat. We walked in the cold, the wind rushing through our hair, ears stinging, waves crashing. Good for the soul. I like to be close to the elements, the ocean is my first true love. 

This parenting gig is hard. Particularly with depression and my own other mental health issues. Particularly when the children have special needs. Particularly when it’s a single parent gig. But days like today make it all worth it.
