As always, the cold light of day brings a better perspective on things.
This morning, Mr TC brought Monkey into my bed. I kissed Mr TC goodbye, and then Tiger came in. We spent half an hour giggling and laughing, Tiger doing Ace Ventura impressions to make Monkey smile. We all got up and I gave Monkey a bottle while Tiger did his homework ... if he finishes it, I will take hime to see Wall-E tonight. A special treat on a schoolnight.
I went back and forth to my boys, kissing them and drinking them in, thinking to myself how perfect they are and how lucky I am.
Tiger told me all about the poo that Monkey did the other day .. "You shouldda seen it mum! It was PERFECTLY ROUND LIKE A MEATBALL!! A total circle!!" Then he played Mario, and as always, said Mario 'Bros', rhyming it with toss.
"What does Bros mean again mum?"
"Ohhhhh, that's right. Pauses. That's actually silly."
I packed his lunch, we laughed that he got the last two chocolate biscuits, leaving none for Mr TC.
My heartlight is back on again. As Mr TC and I always say to each other in a stupid voice ... "CRISIS AVERTED."
