How To Tell That She's Had a Good Day

Her hair is a crazy, windswept, tangly mess from playing on a windy beach
She's got sticky fingers and a mucky chin from eating hot, ketchup-smeared chips
Her trousers are wet from splashing in rock pools
Her wellies are muddy from tramping through the rain-drenched park
She smells of fresh air
She crashed out on the way home and I just dropped her into bed, shattered, filthy and happy

My theory on parenting: if they're dirty and tired by the end of the day, it's been a good one.
