Just looking at this photo makes me crack a grin a mile wide.
Is there anything finer than seeing your kids having a great time? Laughing, giggling, sharing, discovering? Looking all happy.
It also means I get to put a Big Fat Tick on that page in the Parenting Manual which says ‘surround your children with friends and they will flourish’.
For, if there is one thing I have learned in my 10-plus years of parenting, it is that friends can bring great happiness – be you 6, 16 or 60.
