As a mum of three, it’s often difficult to find times that I can spend with each child individually.
I’m sure you maybe have the same struggles, if you are negotiating this parent minefield en masse.
I think, in some regards too, Mr Noah gets the least of my time. It’s possibly due to the girls being the divas that they are, or possibly due to his easy-going, middle-child ways. I do worry sometimes though that I don’t take enough interest in the latest details of Minecraft, or muster enough enthusiasm for all his little quirks and stories.
Everything really is AWESOME when you’re seven, don’t you know? 😉
On Wednesday evenings our girls go to GB, and as Mr M drops them off, Noah and I have developed a little tradition of having hot chocolate while he reads me his school reading book.
It is perhaps a tiny, insignificant moment to most, but those moments curled on the sofa, listening to my boy, are some of the very best in my week…
I am mindful that raising boys and raising girls are two very different processes. The teenage years, and beyond, will no doubt stretch our bond – test it and tug it.
His heart will not always belong to me, his cuddles and kisses will be shared as he grows.
But for now?
On our sofa. On a Wednesday evening.
I’ll enjoy being the only girl he has eyes for.
