French proud Mum and wife, restless explorer and doer freshly landed in Hanoi. One Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “kids friendly” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
My 5 year old son is definitely not an early bird. But this Sunday was different.
He started jumping on our bed even before sunrise, as excited as if we were about to travel to France. “Wake up Mum, wake up !!! It’s Mothers’ Day, wake up!!”
As much as I loved the intention, 6:15 on a Sunday was a bit early. I traded my phone and my 4 colors pen for another hour of sleep. 30 mn later, he was back even more excited “Mum, it’s 6 dot dot 4 and 5, you have to wake up!!!“. I gave up, his excitement was the loudest. Unbeatable.
He didn’t even give me the time to sit. “Look, look, I made this for you. I did it all by myself!”
And here was my present, “made with things I have collected in the house”: an old candy box, some of the smileys we used for an art and craft projects last month, and stickers for my essential oils sprays. It’s called “super smiley box so you remember to smile all the time. And in case you forget, I also wrote something you love on the side“:
Icing on the cake,
Best make up ever is to know that even on a super early Sunday, my son thinks I am “asam” ❤
Double dose of pure pride and happiness when my civilized daughter, who had the decency to wait until 7 AM to jump on our bed, came with this masterpiece:
My heart is full ! Happy Mothers Day ❤
