Over the weekend Tom and I added a bookshelf to the hallway and re-organised some space in our living room. Not massive renovations but just some small jobs we wanted to get out the way to free up some space downstairs. We moved lots of Wilf's books onto the landing a little before bedtime, although he did help me stack them all on there he must have forgotten as the next morning we heard the usual patter of his feet as he made his way from his bedroom to ours and then.. 'OH look! my books!'
Instead of heading to our bed and waking us up at just gone 6am we heard him reading to himself on the landing. Tom and I looked at each other and realised that this was one of those really special moments in life, ordinary and magical all at the same time. Well, I thought that anyway, Tom maybe thought 'great! he's not coming to wake us up! ;)' but we both smiled listening him chatter away through book after book.
Being the person I am I couldn't just stay in bed and savour it, I had to try and sneakily capture the moment. Of course Wilf spotted me after a second and that was that, bouncing on the bed time and Tom send to make the morning cup of tea.
