On the way to school this morning, totally out of the blue my eldest ds looks across the car at me and puts his hand on my arm.. he says "mummy how will you cope with 3 children, it will be hard for you. I think i had better help you lots when the baby comes. I will be able to watch the dinner if the baby needs a nappy change. I'm going to learn to help you lots. I'll be your little helper"
Well i just wanted to melt into a heap on the floor of the car. He could have focused on how the baby was going to affect him, started to feel jealous or resent towards the baby but no instead he thought about how i would feel and my needs.
Just made me realise again how wonderful boys are and what bad press they get sometimes.
