It’s been quiet on the blog this week; our little man has come down with the lurgy. He was really under the weather but now he seems on the road the recovery, normal life can resume. He isn’t a very cuddly little boy; he will come to snuggle occasionally but it usually too busy playing to bother sitting with us. This week however I haven’t been able to leave the room, or the sofa; he was a permanent fixture hanging round my neck! I was also on the phone to my Mum and fair bit, describing his symptoms for the official ‘mummy diagnosis.’
I started thinking about when I was younger and became poorly and how nice it was to be looked after by your Mum. I went through a spell in Primary School when I got tonsillitis a fair bit but other than that I wasn’t often ill. When I was though it meant a day in my Mum and Dads bed and Mum would supply me with my favourite comfort food; Heinz Cream of Chicken soup and buttered bread, egg custard tarts, banana and custard and ice cream. I would sometimes get a colouring book or a puzzle book too. Even now if I’m feeling under the weather I crave my comfort food, it really does make me feel better. This week I bought Lucas a sticker book and some egg custards (which Mummy may have tested too) as he really was feeling quite sorry for himself.
I know things are getting back to normal now because the snuggles on the sofa have stopped; I’m so glad he is getting back to his usual safe but I have secretly been enjoying all the cuddles!
