Totally heart melting

There are some days (read most days) where being a mum feels like a thankless job. I feel blessed that most of the time my kids are pretty affectionate and there are more "I love you, mum" than "You're a mean mum!" Although I'm sure that will swing the other way at some stage.

This morning as I was racing around, making lunches, changing nappies and surviving the general chaos that is morning, I noticed Lil-lil clicking away on the laptop for a nano-second. I wasn't too concerned. She's been fairly sheltered from the whole computer biz, but now does computer at school so has a little tap now and again.

This morning after I returned home and opened up the laptop, I found this:

Seriously? My heart trickled out of my chest and into a puddle on the floor. 

I love these little gems in the day. 

When was the last time your heart was caught unawares? 


  1. Awww.
    That's made me smile - can only imagine what it does for you.
    Just beautiful.

  2. Now THAT is beautiful. I know these moments well, they're the ones that make it all worthwhile. What a darling little lady you have Corinne xo

  3. those little messages do warm the heart. My 15 year old just emailed me from school to ask how my day was going and ending with "love you mum" 3> Queue a little rush of tears from the mother

  4. Adorable. I could only imagine how inspiring it is to read something like that :)


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
