Blog : Little Lilypad Co

The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

Love Is .... The little things.

Posted on


Today's Love Is .... post is from Bex who blogs at The Mummy Adventure

The things that other people don't see or don't notice, but they mean the world to one person. 

The opened mouth kisses from an 11 month old baby, dribble dripping down onto the clean clothes you just put on for work.

Love is magic kisses than can fix any scuffed knee, scratched elbow or knocked head.

Love is getting up with the baby quietly when he wakes at an ungodly hour so that your spouse can have a few extra hours of (much needed) sleep.

Everyday I see love in so many forms, In a look between brothers, in an action from parent to child, and in a favourite meal cooked for a tired partner.

Every day without fail I tell three people that I love them because love is not silent, it is noisy and musical.  Sometimes it sounds classical, sometimes it sounds like the theme tune to In the night garden, even though the Big Bang Theory is on the other channel, sometimes it sounds like two heartbeats in a quiet room.

Love does not see a face with no make up, a nose covered in dried snot or those extra pounds that the Christmas chocolate has left, but instead seems a heart and a soul.  Love can be soppy or it can be tough, but Love knows no bounds, no limits.

Love is giving up your last mouthful of chocolate cake
