The Dad and I very much enjoyed our weekend away, but were excited to go and collect the children again at the end of it. Somewhat predictably (because it happened last time too), the children were not quite so excited to see us.
“We’re here to rescue you from Auntie B’s clutches!” I laughed as we arrived. Pearl glanced up from what she was doing and murmured, “Nooooo…”.
Babess smiled brightly at me and said, “But I don’t want to go home, I want to stay here for this many!” as she held up 6 fingers. Fainjin just looked up and said, “Hi Mum,” but stayed firmly on the couch next to his adored older cousin.
They did all come home without much fuss though. They had even made a card for The Dad for Fathers’ Day!
