MY DD 4 year old said I didn't need to get her anything for her birthday because she thought we couldn't afford it.

My 4 year old told me that she loved me a hundred billion percy pig promises and that she never wanted to live apart from me because apparently im the best. Moments like that make me think im not such a shit mother after all.

My DS was learning shapes and I was asking him to describe them to me.

After doing all the ‘normal’ shapes he told me a heart was ‘a shape made in the shape of love’ and it just got to me.

My 12 week old had dirtied his third nappy in 30 minutes with a big wet fart. I laughed with exhustion and frustration, he saw me and responded with his first laugh and a massive smile and suddenly everything was ok.

My 8yo dd fell on the way into school yesterday. Just as I was about to go over to her my 11 yo ds scooped her up, put his arm around her and led her inside. It melted my heart to see how no matter how much they fight they have each others backs when it comes down to it.

When we'd been at the seaside, and on the way home she refused to sleep because the moon was chasing us home.

The moon was waiting for us when we got back. Happiest child ever.

My DD has recently turned 2. Over the weekend was the first time she said "I love you" to me

My 5 year old DS wrote a note to the baby in my tummy saying he loves his baby sister and can't wait to kiss her chubby cheeks. My heart melted!

Today my 7 year old son told me I should be a policewoman because all the killers would drop their guns when they saw how beautiful I am. I was feeling ugly today so that made me cry a bit. 😂

My 6 year old said he's looking forward to being big so he can take me out for dinner smile

Ds2 (6) told me he’d stay in the kitchen while I picked up a broken glass and cleaned up Incase I died.

Also he has told me he doesn’t want my money when I die!!!

Ds called me to help with some damed computer game. It made suggestions and you have to make sensible guessing at the answer, ie what do you find in an aquarium: star fish, sea weed, tanks, water etc. It gets more complicated, if a hammer defeats a snake what would work on an ogre: a big hammer, a large axe. I’m describing it badly. Anyway, he was stuck cause the prompt was “the knight is feeling scared, what will make him feel brave?” He said he tried “his mum” and “his mum giving him a hug and telling him it would be ok” and they were both wrong so he had no idea what to try next. My heart melted, then I suggested “putting on armour”

I bumped my knee in the shower this morning and let out an exclamation of pain. 2yo DS ran into the bathroom, heaved open the shower door, quickly kissed my knee and looked up to check that he had fixed it for me. grin

When my dad died, quite unexpectedly, 4 yo ds asked why I was crying. I said i was really sad that my dad died, and I'd not se him again.
Ds said "But it's just his body that died. All his love for you is still here."
He has no idea what that meant to me.

My 2 year old son, on seeing I had hurt myself said "¿qué pasó mamá?" what happened mamá? And stroked my face, hugged me and rubbed my back.

My ds when he was about 5 said he wanted to marry me 😂
He's 22 now I must remind him because he is being a spoilt brat. Not for long though. 😶

Yesterday I had DS (3months) in his rocker, which I normally only put him in when DD (14months ) is having a nap so she can't go and bother/poke him (still teaching her the whole 'gentle' concept) but when I brought DD out from her nap yesterday I left DS in the rocker for a little bit to see what they'd do.

Well DD went up to him and started dancing to the tune of his rocker, which in turn made him smile and laugh at her, so she started laughing back and they ended up in this adorable fit of giggles. So DD then runs over to get one of her plush toys and takes it over to him and then lunged at him, wrapped her arms around him and gave him a hug.

Cutest thing I've ever seen.

Then I had to remove him back to his bassinet before his sister tried to climb into the rocker on top of him.. lol

DS(5) and I went for a drive to a near seaside town for some fancy ice cream. We were walking along to the nearby park and as I was pulling my flake out the ice cream both scoops plopped out my cone onto the floor. Without missing a beat DS offered me his cone to make me feel better. I didn't take it but was so proud of him

Dsd aged 3 responding to being asked where her favourite bear was, 'I don't know, it's loss-appeared' smile

DD1 ( who is on the 2nd centile for weight) being told she needed to go to bed and to sleep to help her grow:"in the morning, I shall be a giant"

DD1 on climbing the quite small hill we live up - turns around and surveys the way she's come "what an achievement!"

Oh northend - that made me cry xx

Love this thread, made me a bit teary!
DD fell and hurt herself and big brother DS ran over before I could, scooped her up and kissed it better and did something silly to make her laugh. DD quickly forgot her pain, declared DS “the bestest brother ever” smile

@NorthEndGal flowers what a gentle and insightful wee boy you have, what a wee star!

DS2 (3) woke up crying in the night and before I’d got to his room DD (4) was there soothing him and singing to him while stroking his hair. I stood in the doorway with tears streaming down my face!

When I took DD back to bed I told her that she’d done a lovely thing for her brother and I was ever so proud of her and she looked surprised and said “but that’s what you and Dad do?”

I love when my bairns look out for each other, it’s the thing that makes me proudest of all.
