For Mother’s Day my son made me two lovely cards, and a plaster necklace. One card said he loves me because I ‘make him sausages’ so it’s good to know that the millions of other things go completely unnoticed. I’ll just focus on ‘sausages’ from now on.
We went to a 2 year old’s party in the morning and then out for lunch with my in laws, and I wore my necklace for the duration. Not because I’m one of those mothers who wants everyone to see how talented and special their kid is, but because he tells me ‘I no love you’ on a daily basis, so anything I can do to readdress that is a winner. Now I understand how my own mother became so needy and neurotic. My brother and I were obviously very mean toddlers as well.
