Questions are punctuated by the open beaks of my offspring, and my offerings are alternately dismissed or gulped down with apparently no rhyme or reason. I defy even the best chef in the world to consistently get a toddler to eat.
I have admirably concealed my horror at the blob of Play-doh mashed into my carpet when faced with the distraught face of my son as he realizes that his masterpiece, the greatest blue monster ever is now a pancake under Mummys shoe. I not so admirably dealt with the milk poured with wild abandon into the toybox and then spent an hour getting soaked as we washed the toys in a tub in the garden to make up for my cross words.
So here I am, reading the story of David and Goliath, trying to explain that David wasn’t being a naughty boy when he threw a stone at Goliaths head. And I am tired, so tired. There is nothing left in me to give and then they both turn to me as I finish the story and snuggle in for a hug and I am full again, maybe I was never empty in the first place.
