Oh My Precious Boy

Sometimes its the most unexpected things can bring us the most joy.

Like walking in to check on my boy who was supposed to be napping, after being returned to his room about a hundred times (okay so maybe it was more like 5). And instead finding him reading in amongst a mess in his room, half undressed.

I was cranky and frustrated because I knew this meant he was going to get cranky and overtired later in the afternoon.

Me 'Ryan what are you doing!'
Ryan 'I need to talk into your ear'
So I knelt down and felt his hot breath on my ear
He whispered 'I love you my mummy' 
Talk about taking away my grouchiness.

Boy oh boy he has my heart.

So we sat together on his beanbag and read. And to make things even better, turns out there wasn't an ounce of crankiness this afternoon and he even enjoyed a spur of the moment play date at a little friends house. Perfect way to prove your mumma wrong little man. I am so glad you did.

Oh my goodness! Little ones sure have a way of surprising us don't they! I agree with you, I would have walked into that room and been WAY frustrated because they were not napping and made a mess. But you stayed calm and in turn enjoyed a fun memory of reading together. {Something they say is invaluable to kids}. Way to go mama. You are awesome! Thanks so much for sharing and linking up with me! xoxo
