The following was the conversation we had before Gadget-daddy dropped off to sleep.
We had a long day, full, good and tiring.
Me: Thanks dear for taking us around today.
G-d: Sure. It's good to be home. It was fun to be with the boys.
Me: Yes. They are quite fun to be with... if not they'll be fighting.
So that's the status of our boys right now. Either just fun or just fighting.
Sometimes it's like a mile of milti-coloured carpet rolled out:
Fun: Playing trains together
Fight: Don't crash my trains! You don't play nicely. MaaaX!
Fun: Here, koh-koh, chocolate milk. You want one?
Fight: That's mine! You finished it!
Fun: Look! It's your favourite: Cars.
Fight: I want to watch Cars again. No I want to watch Pocoyo. No it's scary. No it's not scary, it's funny.
Fun: can I kiss your hair? Let me give you a bear hug!
Fight: No! Don't knock the tower down! But it's dominos. No! No! Waaaah!!
Fun: Swing me high. Swing me too!
Eventually it all ends in Zzzzz and then Mommy can finish up some chores and come talk about her day with daddy and her friends on cyber-space.
A day with the kids is like an emotional yo-yo.
And you've got to yo-yo with them too.
