Yesterday I had what may possibly be my best parenting moment yet (asides from bringing both of the boys home from hospital of course).
Drumroll…… Liam said ‘love you Mum’. Ok, so maybe it sounded a little more like ‘ruv you mum’ – but I’m going with it. To say that my heart melted would be an understatement, I was so overcome by emotion it sent a shiver through me. Initially I wasn’t sure if I had heard him right, and asked him to say it again just to be sure (and I just wanted to hear it again!), and there it was – I was right.
After a week of illness and a suspected case of the measles (thankfully the test was negative), hearing these three beautiful words nearly bought me to tears.
Once again I am reminded of just how special my little boy is, and that I don’t think I could love him anymore if I tried.
What has been your best parenting moment?
Happy Saturday everyone x
