When I was pregnant with my second child, I would often rub my bulging belly and wonder what we should call our new baby.

I swear, every time I said in my head,
"What should your name be?"
My *head* answered back...


Sorry *head*...that was never going to be the new baby's name,
especially if it was a boy!

But the new baby was a girl, much to my delight.
And her name does start with "A"...although it is not Angel.

However, that does not stop me calling her that.
She's been my angel since the day she was born.
I call her Angel often.
Every night, in fact.
I tuck her into bed and say,

"Goodnight, Angel."

And just recently, she's taken to responding with,

"Goodnight, Mummy Angel."


If this isn't an angel, I do not know what is!


  1. She is beautiful, definitely an angel.
