Journalling reads: After an argument with Daddy, I felt the need to escape for a while. I grabbed you and the pushchair and just left. I had no idea where I was going to go, no money and no supplies for you. We ended up in a little park. Since you had no shoes on you couldn’t get out and play, so I let you stand up in the pushchair seat to play with the toys on the play equipment. You really seemed to love playing with this abacus, you kept spinning and shoving the balls around. Sitting beside you and watching while you played gave me a lot of time to think about things and cry a lot of tears. But it wasn’t very long before I felt calm enough to dry my tears, and decide that it was time for us to go home again. There really is something incredibly soothing about watching a child at play. Everything seems so complicated to them at first but they just keep trying until it works. I guess at times we need to act like a child to remind us how to act like an adult. 22nd June 2010.
