I Might Be Biased...

...but sometimes I think I have the most beautiful children in the whole world.

I'm sure every parent thinks this at some point. It's an overwhelming feeling of pure, simple love. Sure, it may only be because nature had to come up with a way to prevent cavemen from eating their young. Whatever the reason, it comes in kind of handy when you're having a 'can't take it any more moment' that you can look at them not long after and think they're they most beautiful people you've ever seen.

One of the things I love about having kids is that you can live in a city like London - big, impersonal place - and people who would previously have blanked you (no eye contact, unless you're a nutter) are suddenly happy to talk to you. I'm not sure if this is because having children shows you're not an axe murderer (not necessarily true), or because the babes are an ice breaker.

Either way, it opens up a whole new perspective on the city/life/the world. The best bit is you get to meet new people on a daily basis - on the bus, at the doctors, in the park, everywhere. People are more interesting and interested than you'd imagine. It's eye opening.
