Mmm ..... chocolate!

Today I'm hooking up (wait, that sounds wrong ...); Linking up (!) with the lovely Veronica from Someday We Will Sleep.

Veronica is hosting Kim's weekly Sunday Selections, where she encourages bloggers to post photos that are just sitting on their computers, waiting to be shared.

My photos aren't gorgeous arty ones like theirs are, but they are snapshops in time  from my life with my kids. And so to me, they are precious.

Like this one. We were out shopping the other day when Mr 10 asked me to turn my back while he spent some of his pocket money. He didn't have enough for whatever it was he was buying, so his sister offered him some of hers. 

Together, they made me close my eyes when they christened me with this:
  
It was a very classy chocolate foil medallion, which said: 'Best Mum!'
Altogether now: Awww ....

Aren't they gorgeous kids!?

I know, one minute they are sending my blood pressure skyrocketing with their bickering and sniping, and the next they are melting my heart with their love. Parenting is like that. Isn't it? (Please say it is!)

Of course, I had help to eat the love token ...

"Chocolate? What chocolate?"

Nawww, you've got great kids! I had to nag mine for years to get them to buy me one of those sappy "World's Best Mum" coffee mugs ... but it worked!!!

Fabulous! Really epitomizes the small and sweet things about kids that make the hair greying, wrinkle making aspects of it all worthwhile!
