IMG_20151130_121550 

 

During the week we were in the Dr's surgery and I must have pulled Amelia away from a sink 100 times, that had something in it she shouldn't touch. "no Amelia, come away from.the sink", "Oh Amelia, please sit down", Amelia, sit here and we will be going in a minute", "Amelia I'll give you my phone if you sit down", "Amelia come away from the sink", Amelia leave the Dr's Umbrella alone", "Amelia stop touch that", "Amelia stop jumping on the scales", "Amelia stop using the scales to see what's in the sink" "Amelia come away from the sink"……I could keep writing it just went on and on! This was all said in low tone with a smile on my face!

This is laughable, because inside my blood was boiling, toes curling amd fists clenched, she can push me further than anyone else can…..and usually by the time we are alone for me to kill give out to her for what she has done, I'm so flustered I just want to get home. Then it's all forgotten about!
