Sock squirrelling, and other small things to remember
Taking your socks off at every given opportunity. Then hiding them in unexpected places around the house. Meaning I’m constantly on the hunt for matching mini pairs of socks.
Eating everything you can get your hands on, then saying ‘Mummeee, I’m HUNgry.’
Calling being in the swing ‘flying.’
Having a forlorn look on your face, and when asked what’s wrong saying ‘I don’t feel well…need an x-ray!’ Then pretending to put your ‘x-ray’ on an invisible light box on the wall, and saying ‘interesting’ (I think this came from a book…)
Having a toy Mickey, who you call Minnie. Who travels in a pair, with Turtle (who is actually a turtle).
Insisting on wearing the winter hat you wouldn’t have near your head during the freezing weather.
Still calling me – and your dad, grans, Minnie and Turtle – your best friends. Heart meltingly endearing, even at 4am.
These are the really little things, that are so normal and everyday we won’t think about when they’re replaced by other, bigger things. They grow up so quickly, and time moves so fast when you have a child, doesn’t it? So here’s to making sure I remember them.
