Came down to Daniella’s room and met her in bed.
Me: Daniella, when you were coming down I told you to wear a pair of socks once you get here. You didn’t? I don’t want to go to ER this Christmas, do you hear me?
Daniella: (collects her socks from me and starts putting them on) Mom, I am sorry ok. I was taking care of my babies. I need to feed them baby food and there’s no baby food in this house.
Me: Daniella, I bought toothpaste for us , this is it, use from this when you go to brush ok?
Daniella: where’s mine?
Me: Both of us will use this one ok? It’s great for both of us.
Daniella: (checks out the pack and hugs me smiling and then said) Thank you, Mummy, for the hand gloves and chocolates and the toothpaste, you’re a super mom.
Me: me, super mom Daniella: yes you are a super mom. I love you ok? I will buy something for you ok?
