Role Reversal

Written by on July 15, 2010 in BLOG - 16 Comments

Last night my head hurt, it had been building all day at work. A migraine throbbing behind my eyes. I couldn’t look at the light.

I managed to put the 4 year old to bed and then went and crawled under my duvet, blocking out all the light. I sighed, glad of the relief.

Five minutes later the 6 year old found me.  She wanted me to read to her, I told her I couldn’t.

She came back a few minutes later with a book, she stroked my head gently and read to me. Every so often she paused, lifted the duvet a bit and showed me a picture.

It’s there that the husband found her 15 minutes later, sat next to her cocooned, sleeping mother, reading beautifully.

    Ah bless her. Children are so cute when adults are ill. They really do surprise us when we need them to.

    What a little treasure…obviously you’ve set her a great example. She should have a special treat [when you’re better, which I trust will be soon].

    That is just so adorable. How I long for my 1 and 2 year olds to be able to be that considerate to me when I have a migraine! You have trained them well.

    Awww… my 4yo is so caring (when it suits her, it has to be said!) She is far more giving than her elder brother and often give up her fair share of stuff to him.
