What love looks like in our house...

Poor Annie was sick almost the whole holidays.
She had the worst cold, head aches, body aches and sore ears.
She really was miserable.

In our house when you are sick I build you a nest on the sofa
or the floor with cushions and blankets and you lie in there
and I bring you food and drink at regular intervals.
TV watching is usually included in this.

It's called "being mummied" as in "will you mummy me?"
which is what the kids say.

I hope that when the kids have left home that when they put the quilts I've made on their beds
or snuggle up under them on their sofas in their flats,
that they feel the love that I have for them,
that they feel protected and cared for where ever they are.

I'm not really the kind of mum who knows the right things to say,
I always think of those things after,
but I really hope that they feel loved by the things that I do for them.

Even the dolls have snuggly beds in this house!
