It’s half term and Bonus Boy has spent much of this week trotting after his siblings like a puppy, building with Lego and wriggling across the floor wrapped in a blanket pretending to be a slug. He has made me laugh a lot and cry a bit.
When I refused to put the TV on for him he sent me a note which read ‘I hat [hate]you Mummy’ (that was the bit which made me cry a bit) but he followed it swiftly with another one which read ‘I sore [sorry] Mummy’ and I got a huge cuddle.
‘Mummy, I love you very much and I’d like to marry you if you weren’t already taken’
‘Mummy, your tummy is rumbling – shall I pop downstairs and make you a little sandwich?’
Me: I love you so much I could burst
BB: Oh don’t do that!
Me: I won’t it would be terribly messy
BB: And I don’t want lots of popped Mummy on the floor, I’d have to clear it up and I would be sad (at which point he started crying and I had to reassure him that I would not, under any circumstances, pop)
As I lay about lazily in bed watching Mr Thinly Spread get ready for work I was reminded of one of our personal favourites from last year ‘Daddy? Why are you putting underarm hair grow lotion on?’
