It's the little moments

This afternoon I was downloading some music to my iPod. I had my earbuds in, checking that it was all there and Tyler came over and asked to listen. So I gave him one earbud and he put it in, looked thoughtful and said "I like that" (Dougie Maclean) then put his arms around me and started bopping away.

Later on, I was in the laundry folding Mt Washmore, when I heard the sort of crash thump thump that makes any mother's heart skip a beat. Sure enough there was a loud wail from the lounge. I raced in to find him huddled on the floor, clutching his shin and crying. As I cuddled him I realised he was wearing his t-shirt with the neck part over the front of his chest, thus constraining his arms. Once he had stopped sobbing, I asked him why he had done that and he said "Because I wanted to be Ben 10". Obviously Ben 10 can fly between couches with his arms pinned to his sides.
