When you tell Master 5 to go get his pyjamas on and he says he would rather wear his school clothes to bed. You question why and he says it wont take so long to get ready for school the when he wakes up. Hence (not his word) there will be more time for playing cars.
You know it must be 3/4 through the school year and close to the end of term because you can see his logic and you agreee.
It's a jungle out there and these guys are ready to face it head on. I am impressed daily by their fierceness.
And I often feel so overcome with their tenacity that I laugh. I smother fits of giggles when Gus uses his hurt and angry voice to tell me that he loves me "this much" as he holds up two fist, no fingers, because it was only ten minutes earlier and will be ten minutes until he tells me he loves me "this much" as he holds up two fists, ten fingers. All I can do is tell him that my love for him does not waver. It is given to him with all of my heart and with all of my soul.
