My little hero

The last few weeks have been laden with bad news and illness.  I’ve found it all rather draining so I don’t suppose it was much of a surprise when I came down with a bug on Sunday.  Great timing though – at least my husband is actually around on Sunday’s so he could look after Monkey for the day, while I curled up under the duvet.

Monday, he also helped with the pre-school runs as there was no way I was capable.  Yesterday he was at work on another of his very long day and night shifts and Monkey doesn’t go to pre-school on Tuesdays.  I was still feeling really fragile yesterday morning and worrying about how to occupy a 3-year-old whilst feeling so rubbish.

I shouldn’t have worried.  My little Monkey was so great yesterday.  He just knew I wasn’t feeling very well.  He ate his breakfast straight up, no tantrums getting dressed and then disappeared.  All was quiet.  Oh no, what was he up to?  Bless him, he was sat on the sofa with his beloved teddy with a big pile of books, reading.  He spent the next HOUR, reading to teddy (obviously it was making up his own interpretation of the stories).  It was wonderful to watch and so much appreciated by a poorly Mummy.

For the rest of the day he was just lovely, no moaning, no tantrums, he ate all his dinner.  He made my life easier, it was much appreciated.  He just seemed to know that yesterday he needed to be a good boy – ALL day 🙂

Thankfully, I felt a lot better by bedtime.  But I’m sure it really helped having my little hero look after me for the day. I’m also sure ‘normal’ service will resume when I pick him up from pre-school later!

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
