A Perfect Moment At The End Of A Less Than Perfect Day

on July 2, 2014

Yesterday was one of those days.  I had chastised my 6 and 2 year olds for what seemed the whole day.  No amount of cajoling, threatening, attempted distraction or straight out threats had worked.  Their arguing, sniping, whining and fighting had continued unabated.

I have to say I was totally exhausted and disheartened (to say the least) by the end of the day.  So I was so pleased when 6 year old appeared by my side to say that he was sorry for being so naughty.  All my bad humour melted away and I wrapped him in a big hug, cuddling him close.

After a minute of two he raised his head and looked up at my face with a concerned look and said with all seriousness:  “Mummy, under your arms is a little bit stinky.”

And that was the end of my perfect moment.

But I did laugh and even said yes when he volunteered to get the deodorant for me!

What’s your most perfect moment?
