The other day I marvelled how safe the mother fox must have felt to breastfeed two of her babies while I was breastfeeding mine a few metres away from her. Baby foxes chasing each other and jumping about have been a source of joy and excitement in our household. It’s like a wildlife programme, except live.
For me, the gift of this fox family is that of playfulness. They remind me daily that
– When we play, we bond.
– When we play, we grow more effortlessly.
– When we play, we learn.
– When we play, we are happier.
