Last night while laying in bed with my beautiful daughter, she asked me to tell her a story. This is how it went.
Once upon a time there was a Mummy who was very sad and grumpy. The Mummy didn’t want to be so sad and grumpy, she knew it was just her brain not working properly. She knew it wasn’t her children’s fault and she was sorry if she ever upset them.
The Mummy had to sleep a lot during the day and didn’t have a lot of energy to take her kids to the park, even though she really wanted to. Luckily her doctor knew how to help and gave her some medicine to help her get back to normal so she could smile and feel happy again. The medicine took a little bit of time to work, but soon the Mummy didn’t need to sleep or cry so much.
What the Mummy did know, however, was that she loved her children so much and that her favourite thing to do was to kiss and cuddle them to sleep at night.
After I told her this story she smiled, rolled over and went to sleep.
