A morning that made me wake up

May 7, 2012

Dear Max

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?

Max: Gina

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.
