Magic moments...

During a tender moment with Junior this morning we started talking about what would make us happy this Christmas. Junior asked me what the best present I had ever been given was and I replied, without even having to even think about it, that he had been my best and most precious gift. He smiled contendedly and threw himself at me for one of his super cuddles - you know the kind that just melt your heart and make you feel like the luckiest person alive. He wanted to know why he was so special. I pondered this for a few seconds before giving him his reply.
"You are the moon and the stars and the sun and the sky all rolled into one.." I smiled lovingly, "..even if I never got another Christmas present for the rest of my life I would still be the luckiest Mummy on the planet because I had you"
I suppose it was a bit "Hallmarky" but I meant every word of it and it seemed to go down well with Junior. A wee tear sprung to my eye as he squeezed me a little tighter. Hoping to keep the moment alive I asked Junior what would make him happy this Christmas. After careful consideration he brushed my cheek gently and sighed. Here we go, I thought, this is going to be something profound and beautiful - a moment to remember all my life.
"I'd be happy with some Lego Mummy" he said before running off to play with his Transformer.
Oh well, never mind.
We're off to build a snowman in the back garden. Junior thought it might be funny to make a snowwoman (I guess that would involve a couple of strategically placed snowballs?) and I am proud of him for redressing the balance. Wishing all the readers of wordswithhazel a lovely, peaceful and beautiful Christmas. X
