Why He Loves Me

As I was putting The Boy to bed tonight we read one of our favourite books: "I Love My Mum", it's a gorgeous book and one that I've mentioned before when I showed him 'reading' it.

In the book the baby animals explain (in prose) why they love their mummies; she keeps me warm, she keeps me safe, she lets me play in the mud, etc. At the end of the book, we had a cuddle and a kiss, and then I took a risk. I asked him why he loves me.

"Because you help me make things".

That makes me incredibly happy.

    That's very sweet. I love the things that Luke comes out with. He told me last week 'I want to be a kid forever'. When I asked why, he replied 'Because you an Daddy give me a nice life'. I melted.

      I did wonder if I was taking my life in my hands, but I also knew that a 2 year old would be honest. Depending upon his answer I might have needed to change my parenting skills!
