Do you find that when you are the mum of a lively and adventurous toddler you end up saying 'no' far too often?
Well today I decided to be a yes mum.
I let him drive the car.
Then we went to the park, even though it was freezing, and I let him go on all the dangerous, big kid climbing frames and slides (even though it involved me having to chase him, hoist him, have a panic attack every five minutes!) that I normally drag him away from.
He loved it. I was exhausted.
I let him push his pram all the way back to town and linger for ages over the swans.
I let him walk through the muddy puddles and then splash in them and get his trainers and jeans covered in mud.
I took him to our old favourite cafe (where the waitress is his girlfriend - it was a happy reunion) and he got a fruit shoot (daddy bans them shhh) and a chocolate rolo brownie.
And wear it all over!
Ad snuggle on the sofa with mummy and watch Gilmour Girls on Netflix (he's a big fan!)
Okay so perhaps the last one was more for me. It's tiring work being a yes mummy!
Do you ever have days like these?
