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?
Don’t forget to enjoy your day.
