"Mummy I love you" said Renée to me this morning as I was brushing her hair in time for school.
"I love you too darling", I replied.
"No, but Mummy, I really, really love you."
"And I really, really, really love you."
This had the potential to go on for some time. It reminded me of the book that my Mother had bought for me when I had first given birth to Renée and one that I hadn't read in a long time - the one with the two hares - 'Guess How Much I love You' - where Mummy Hare concludes by saying 'I love you right up to the moon and back'.
I wanted to say something similar to Renée, but she beat me to it.
"You're the best Mummy in the world and if they had Mummys on other planets then you'd be better than them as well."
It was a priceless moment which brought tears to my eyes and made me realise just how lucky I am.
