I am a bad mother. This morning I allowed Kingsley to fall off the bed. And yesterday I burnt him (ever so slightly, mind) in the sun, while we walked about Coogee Beach. And last night I almost scalded him while he splashed in his bath, with hot water…
Three things I swore I would never do as a mum when Kingsley came along: let the little lamb fall, cause my darling’s gossamer skin to burn through excessive sun exposure, and bring about a near miss with a kettle full of hot water.
No damage done on any count, rest assured. However my sisters Marlen & Sylvia as well as Kingsley’s Jiajia Dora have not let me forget it either, and shall remind me till the boy is of voting age.
