I am walking on cloud 999 because my son thinks I am the coolest mum in the world. For me this is a massive honour as my oldest son never usually shares his feelings. He lives in a world of his own occasionally he lets people into his world but it is only for a brief visit.
Why am I so cool. Well I play Assassin’s Creed on the X-box I enjoy completing the challenges. In the latest Assassin Creed game, you have to sail the seven seas and defeat the ships and forts. I always struggle to do these sort of challenges as my canons never seem to end up where I want.
Luke on the other hand comes and takes over the control and destroys the forts and ships on his first go. As he nonchalantly holds the control by his side, with not a care in the world. Jumping up and down with excitement, he becomes lost in the swashbuckling adventure.
Yesterday he came home and presented me with a card he made at school for me. He was so impressed I had completed all the missions on Assassin’s Creed he had made me a congratulations card. For a period of time Luke and me have a common interest, that has no barriers. For me Luke thinking I am the coolest mum in the world is the biggest complement.
