Are you feeling poorly Mommy?
I replied from under the duvet with a slight temperature and the chills.
T bent over and kissed me.
There! Are you feeling better already?
She asked me with a conviction only a two-year-old would have – that her kisses would make her mother better.
With a heavy head, but a heart full of love I mustered all the energy I had and cheerfully answered …
Yes! I am feeling so much better!
In fact mommy isn’t feeling poorly anymore!
Thank you for your magic kisses, sweetie.
I knew I over-did that bit, as soon as I finished with my last sentence, T blurted out:
Good! Then you can play with me!
