Tells It Like It Is
Yesterday I got to spend the day in a spa. There was swimming, pedicures, saunas, afternoon tea and lovely company. It was my first full day away from the children since Bruiser had been born. As I was getting ready in the morning, my emotions were a mixture of guilt and excitement…The guilt wore off.
Just before I left, Diva decided to make sure I knew exactly what she thought of the situation…
Diva: Do you love me, Mummy?
Mummy: Of course I love you. I love you lots and lots.
Diva: I love Daddy.
Mummy: (Pause) Good.
(Then, after a few more minutes…)
Diva: I love you too, Mummy.
Mummy: Thank you, sweetheart.
Diva: Can you leave your ipad?
As I said, the guilt wore off.
