Small Talk #25

by

Sometimes my mummy cries. I don't know why. She tells friends she hates 'a mess'. But she says it when there's no mess!

Says she's a bad mother because of 'a mess' and she can't do things other mums can, like taking me out for a walk. If I could speak I would say the same as Baba. He says I'm the luckiest boy in the world having a mum like her. She spends her time reading books to me, talking to me, snuggling with me watching Baby Jake. Other babies aren't so lucky! 'A mess' is OK by me!

    Beautifully and sensitively done Neville. It's nice to take kids out, but it's far from being the be-all and end-all. The main thing is to be nurturing and loving and Mummy has that and some!
    And anyway a mess is just order seen from a different point of view :)

    Thanks Drew.

    Interesting thought that a mess is just order from a different POV. Sadly there's quite a lot of disorder in my daughter's MS.

    It's very hard to live with Neville, for all concerned. I wish you and your family strength. (And Mum should listen to him, he's a wise child).

    I second that, Neville. All the very best to you and your family. And the most important thing a parent can do is spend time with their child. And Mum sounds like she's got that covered.

    Thanks, Christopher. He's a very chilled, secure little boy. He is very lucky... and so is she.
