This afternoon I went job hunting and when I got back, my darling son, Xander, threw himself at my legs and hugged me tight. A few minutes later, he popped up behind my laptop computer, so I said, “Hello!”, to which he replied, “I love you!”
Yes, it came out, “Ah-uv-oo”, but I knew exactly what he meant, and if I hadn’t been certain, the fact that he came and offered me a kiss and cuddle immediately afterwards surely reinforced it.
Today I am the richest Mummy in the world!
