Tonight as I was tidying away toys and winding down I heard Seb cry out. I ran up to him as it's quite unusual for him and he had happily gone to bed an hour earlier with a Brambly Hedge book that used to be mine.
He had heard me putting away the bricks and was upset that I had taken down his creations but I said we could do more tomorrow.
He asked me to get into his bed for a cuddle so I did and we laid nose to nose and I showed him how to do Eskimo kisses, he wrapped his arms round my neck to give me a big squeeze and told me he loved me. I stayed for a while and then said I had to come down to finish the tidying but he said I couldn't because I was stuck while tightening his arms around me and said he wanted mummy to stay all night. We laid there giggling and talking, me sniffing in his scent until I really had to leave feeling on top of the world.
I'm documenting this because i don't want to forget the little things that make my days so special. When he is towering over me, I can look back and remember my sweet little boy.
