little bear and dragon mums

Kitty gave birth to a new little bundle of joy this week: our little bear.

Little bear has been amazing so far, a real delight to see and hold.

I also read a very sad story in the NY Times this week about Dragon Mums: mothers and fathers of terminally ill children. It taught me to cherish every moment with little bear and junior pixels.

“This is a love story, and like all great love stories, it is a story of loss. Parenting, I’ve come to understand, is about loving my child today. Now. In fact, for any parent, anywhere, that’s all there is.”
