The list is never ending. Children always know the best time to charm you. Today, Nate has been unhappy, pre-illness grumps we think. He has been refusing to go to sleep just generally not being easy going which he generally is. At bedtime I went downstairs to get myself a drink and have two minutes away.
When I go upstairs Nate has stopped crying and is quietly asking for me. We have a little cuddle and he whispers to me "I missed you so much mummy" I was only gone for a maximum of five minutes but it was enough for him to miss me. We had a little chat about mummy coming back in which I told him I loved him to which he replies "I love you too mummy" that was enough for my heart to melt. My day/week was made by five simple words from a 27 month old. Simple pleasures.
