That’s what it’s all about! Joyous little souls, happy and content children, safely tucked into their parents arms.
And sometimes it is about teaching them to remember to clean up after themselves, or practise their alphabets, or keep their hats and mitts on when out in the cold, or even eating their dinner in less than an hour, via the magical Elf.
Sometimes in the midst of it all, discovering that the world – however grey it may look from time to time – is still a place of hope … as long as our children believe in giving.
