Just wanted to say it seems to me it is very hard when you are the one who lives with the children every day, makes the sandwiches, does the washing, mops the tears, sick etc, and then they go off to have special times with he who no longer lives with you… But never underestimate what you do. Never mind the garden, you have grown two beautiful and healthy boys…
