Picking up Big Sis from school on Friday, I noticed she had a little bag of meringues in her book bag. They often bake little biscuits to bring home, so I didn’t really think twice about it. 

‘Can you open these, please Mummy?’ she asked, handing me the packet. 

Half-distracted, I pulled open the ribbon, and handed them back to her. ‘Share them with your sister,’ I instructed. 

Imagine my surprise when I received my Mother’s Day present this morning… 

‘Ermm, Big Sis, did you eat my Mother’s Day present?’ I asked. 

‘No Mummy!’ she replied, looking insulted. ‘I was just making sure the ‘rangs’ (meringues) weren’t too big for you!’

Soooo thoughtful.

    Haha, it’s the same with K – if she bakes something at nursery I don’t get a look in. I just imagine the drool and snot that probably goes into these things and think myself lucky πŸ™‚
