|Swinging in Uzes|
While we were there Gilby turned six, and, to celebrate, we went to Aqualand (just as we did last year, but don't judge...). Having traversed all the slides before, I was quite happy to swap the adrenaline rush for a sun-lounger and a book this year. (Who said old and boring?) I could 'plot up' in peace, and be the repository for bags and towels, and the supplier of sunscreen as required.
|My sis and Gertie on 'The Wave'. Been there, done that.|
It was lovely to see him so confident and assured and grown up.
And yet, bittersweet.
I can't help thinking that this is the beginning of the end in a gradual process of role reversal as he begins to lead me rather than the other way round.

He does need Mummy for a little while longer, after all.
