I arrived home last night to some excitement at Potting Shed HQ: Reuben and Joshua had new duvets and pillows for their cot.
Up until now the boys have slept in zip-up sleeping bags, and pulled blankets over themselves if cold. But now they have ‘big boy’ duvets and pillows.
They raced upstairs to show me, threw themselves into their cots and race under the duvet. What genuine smiles!
This morning I went in to see them around 07:15. They were standing in their cots holding a cuddly snowman and cuddly Santa over the edges of their cot.
“Diving!” they said before dropping the toys only the floor.
I picked them up.
I picked them up. Again.
“Joshua, show me how you get under your duvet.”
Joshua dropped to his knees and shuffled under his duvet, pulling it tightly around his head.
“Do you like your new duvet?” I asked him.
“New duvet make my happy.” he said.
And you know, that made me happy too.
