Every parent and child have a “thing”, something that’s theirs and between them (well at least I hope they do else fish and I are seriously odd).
Our “thing” isn’t anything big or eloborate, but here’s how it came about:
Now and then I keep fish at home, the joys of working for yourself, though usually I still have to do some work but he’s just happy to be allowed to stay and “work” with mummy and being so independant he’s always doing something to keep himself busy during that period.
So one of those stay at home days I was busy getting a design done (yes one of my many talents is designing logos etc haha) and he comes barreling in and climbs onto my lap, wraps his arms around my neck to break my bones (what he calls a hug) and says to me “I like you lots” then he got off and ran back to whatever he was doing.
Since that day “I like you lots” has become our little thing and we’ll randomly shout for each others attention just to say I like you lots…
