Thanks, kids

You can always rely on your kids to put you in your place.

I'm working on an Italian dictionary project this morning, so I leave various editions open on the dining room table with my laptop, as I go to arrange the little ones' breakfast. I come back to Anna looking proudly at the contributors' page of one of them and hear her say 'Look Amaia, that's mummy's name. She helped write it!' Awwwh, my kids see there's more to me than bum-wiping, at last. But as I come in Léon looks up at me and says 'That's really impressive mummy... But you do know no one ever reads that page, don't you?' Thanks, kiddo, that's me back in my place!
