‘Too much sugar is not good for you, darling.’
‘No. Would you like an egg?’
We’ve been playing hide and seek lately. He takes my hand and leads me to a corner.
‘Mummy, hide here!’
Then he runs off to another room and starts counting.
If he doesn’t find me in the allocated corner, the surprised look on his face is truly priceless. My attempts to explain that that’s the point of hide-and-seek have not proven successful.
When it’s his turn to hide, I close my eyes and count. He goes next door and hides. Usually by the count of five, he runs back to where he left me screaming ‘I’m here! I’m here!’
‘Mum-dad-mummy’ or ‘dad-mum-daddy’ is usually how he addresses us these days. I think occasionally we morph into one being in his eyes.
‘I like you very much, mummy.’
‘I like you very much, sweetheart.’
‘You are gorgeous, mummy.’
Well, how can one argue with that?
Hope this post put a smile on your face. Have a great week!
