- Is it a newborn baby that demands your attention every single second of the day
- Or an awkward teenager that shows a lot of potential, but constantly challenges your control, patience and expectations
- An old dotty aunt, who doesn’t know whether she’s coming or going
- A wayward cousin, always escaping ruin by the skin of his teeth
- A champion athlete, out there breaking records, winning medals and preparing for the next big challenge.
- Or a distinguished old gentleman, relaxing with a pipe in one hand, a twinkle in his eye, and an assured confidence that everything is running like clockwork.
Mine’s probably a toddler, starting to take shape and develop its own personality. Growing a flavour of independence, but still demanding a lot of attention and nurturing. Somewhat temperamental and prone to sudden changes and challenges.
