Anyway, Small Sprog is excited about having a larger bedroom when we move. He has a dream of setting up his Scalextrics his new room, so that the track runs under his bed. He has talked about this a lot, he has 'boy genes' for moving house, Tall Girl is more interested in matching bedding and sparkly cushions!
Husband has other thoughts about the racetrack. He wants to keep it here for Small Sprog, to set up in the attic room when I have gone. I mentioned the issue to Small Sprog this morning.
'I want to have it in both houses' he said.
Husband had obviously chatted to Small Sprog about it too.
'You can move it between both houses if you like' I replied .'Seeing as we have a van though, where do you want to have it first?'
He thought long and hard. I know he wants it in his new home, he has talked about it a lot. I could see a 'thinking frown' on his face.
'I'll leave it here for a while' he said after careful consideration 'So then Daddy will have something to look forward to'
I could have cried. He is 10, born thoughtful and kind. In all of this upheaval, he is thinking about other peoples feelings. What more could I ask for?
(Mind you, these thoughts do not count when doing battle with ones sister!!)
