Happy Fatherhood

A glimpse of a family idyll

A friend of mine is very creative. His children have either inherited or imbibed his artistic flair, and he spends a lot of time doing crafts with them.

Together they decorated their christmas cake. They placed figures all over it, snowball fighting, sledging, snowman building, present delivering, etc, etc. It's a great job.

On seeing it, I felt a pang of jealousy, imagining them all gathered round it, peacefully and collaboratively building their christmas centrepiece, basking in the warm glow of family love.. I mentioned this and was corrected - it wasn't like that at all, they all had different ideas, and got upset with each other for ruining it.

So there you go; chances are any ideal family you know probably have the same stresses you do.
