Do you know what time of the day is my favourite time? Bed time.
And not because of the obvious reason that it means the children of the house will sleep (though that's a bonus!).
More specifically I love Josh's bedtime. Usually it means Zoe is already down for the night in her room, and then I scoot off to Josh's room, read him a bedtime story, then we turn the light off and snuggle under the covers and have a gorgeous little chat together about what we did that day. These moments are so beautiful and precious. Josh often comes up with wonderful insights regarding our day and every night - without fail- the chatting is peppered with lots of the following quote: 'I love you so much mummy'. Often accompanied with lots of cuddles.
I remember the first time I heard those words from Josh, I just wanted to cry, my heart burst a thousand times over.
And tonight, he did something so adorable, I wanted to eat him up right then.
He gave me a kiss and said 'you're just like ice-cream'. At first, I wasn't quite sure what he was getting at. But then he leaned over me and proceeded to give me a succession of the most delicate little kisses on my cheek, including sound effects, and I realised he was telling me how sweet I was.
My heart burst a thousand times all over again.......
