There is a simple reason why the love you have for your children is unconditional; If a friend, relation, acquaintance or complete and utter stranger did half the things your child does (and gets away with), you would either unfriend (is that even a real word?), report or bust out some serious kung-fu moves on them.
A few examples;
When riding on your shoulders, gleefully announcing “ I’m not going to fall because I’m holding on to your chins…”
Projectile vomiting in your mouth, pooing in your shoes and weeing in your eye.
Trashing your whole entire house, leaving a trail of unidentifiable substances and breaking the door handle with a hearty laugh and then refusing to tidy up, accept responsibility or pass you the gin.
Delving into your top and only being satisfied when both boobs are properly out, with nothing to do and nowhere to go and then walking away pointing and chanting “Boobs, Boobs, Boobs !”.
Rolling around on the floor screaming that the noodles should have been on the left of the plate, not the right and demanding something else.
Waking you up at 2.36am with an urgent order of water, warm milk, cold milk, water again and a ham sandwich cut into squares NOT circles.
Proclaiming loudly that you are not in fact their mum, but their horrible wicked stepmother who gives them poisonous apples for breakfast.
Snuggling up to you on the sofa and wiping their snot away on your face.
Suggesting that instead of going away for one night, you go away forever and ask a doctor for a new boy.
Asking you why you`re still wearing pyjamas, when you thought you looked quite hip in your new starry jumpsuit.
