This morning was all kinds of chaos. Nothing all that out of the ordinary, just a whole lot of little delays and arguments, uncooperative children, tired parents, “lost” items and other tangles.
Finally we got Pearl & Fainjin to school, and headed towards daycare and work. About halfway there, The Dad asked me whether I had remembered to pick up the cake from the kitchen bench – it was intended for an office morning tea this morning. I had not, and it was the final straw as far as I was concerned. “Awww fudge!”
Babess, so sweet and innocent, asked with all concern from the back seat, “Did you forget to bring your fudge, Mummy?”
“Ummm, yes. Yes, I did.”
The Dad caught my eye and we both started giggling.
Ah, thank you, Babess. We needed that laugh. Perhaps I should make some fudge.
