Yesterday morning we had one of those quality moments that made me realise that doing “nothing” is everything, and how not setting an alarm or a to-do in my Moleskine is the best way to connect with myself and you. This isn’t new, and I guess everyone *knows* this, but it was a good reminder.
So when you woke up, with no devices or anything near us, we hopped into bed, and read many books, mostly about four-wheeled large vehicles peppered with one about Spot. We laughed, we spoke about stuff (toddler to mom conversations about drivers, farms, cows and our dog and cats).
Max: My bottle empty
Me: Yes, you drank quite a lot last night
Max: Milk comes from cows
Me: It does. And where do cows live?
Max: They live on farms
Me: And what do cows eat?
Max: They eat hay. And cats eat food
Me: And who else eats food?
Me: I’m going to eat you (jokingly). Where’s the tomato sauce?
Max: Nooooo (giggling)
And then my favourite:
Me: Max, please don’t kick me, even if it was an accident. It’s sore
Max: Sorry mommeee (patting my leg). Better?
Me: Yes, thanks Max, all better
Max: You okay?
Me: Yes Max
Max: Beeeeg hug mommee (giving me a hug)
Me: Aaaah Max. You’re awesome
A reminder of the important things. Thank you for making my day.
