"I love you mummy" said Small Sprog in the car earlier today. "I'll always be your little boy."
My heart melted.
"But you don't have to worry about me when I'm grown up!"He continued.
"I will always worry about you, even when you're my age" I said
"She will always want to know you're happy" replied my Mum, with feeling. She knows I have things in my life which make me extremely happy. She knows I have a lot of stuff to get through. She still asks 'why' a lot. She still worries about me. I count her as one of my best friends.
Tonight has been a dancing in the kitchen night (Mum has gone home). Husband is out, the loud music went on, and we danced until bedtime (which for Small Sprog is about 8pm!) We are good together, just the three of us. It's nice to 'let our hair down' once again.
