Our Entertainer is Back

Good Morning all, I trust you had a fabulous weekend and are looking forward to this week’s antics, I know I am. It’s week two of my posting every day and I can’t wait to get started, I guess that’s a good sign?

Anyway as it’s Monday I’m linking this post up to #MagicMoments over at The Oliver’s Madhouse, Jaime is a lovely person and the group that get involved in this link are kind and friendly. Why not hop over there and take a look?

When my youngest was a baby he was so cheerful, he’d spend most of the day smiling and laughing and very rarely you would see him crying. Then we went on holiday and while there we lost his comfort blanket and with it our cheerful boy seemed to disappear. He suddenly turned into a screaming, angry child who wouldn’t let anyone comfort him. We tried to buy him a new blanket, it was identical to the old one but he knew it was different and it didn’t get accepted. For three years I’ve felt the guilt of losing that blanket, it’s eaten away at me because I wonder if we’d just looked after it better we wouldn’t have lost our cheerful boy. The annoying thing about the blanket incident was that it wasn’t even me that lost it but it was a long time ago and there’s no point assigning blame now. 

On Friday night the hubby and I were talking as we went up to bed it was 1am. As we got to the top of the stairs the little one came scurrying out of his bedroom, the biggest smile on his face, and looked at us. Before I could say anything he grinned and gave us a little wave then turned around and went back to bed. We burst out laughing! He just wanted to come and say hello and then go back to bed but seeing his little smiling face and that energetic wave before he disappeared was amazing. It made me realise that my cheerful boy didn’t disappear the day of the blanket incident, he just went away for a while. I realised we have him back now, our little one is always the one to make people laugh, he’s an entertainer. The rush of love (and relief) that swept through me that night was indescribable but I’m sure all you parents out there know just what I’m talking about. 

We have our smiler back and I couldn’t be happier!


  1. Aw, that's so sweet. I was hoping, as I read, that you rediscovered Blanky, but the return of the smile was far better. I love the fact that he waved and went back to bed again too....mine is at that age where it's any excuse to delay bedtime! Dropping in from #magicmoments.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Sarah. Yes I was hoping we'd rediscover the blanket but unfortunately not. I'm very lucky that both my children tend to stay in bed when there, although we have had delaying tactics recently. This is more at bedtime than once in bed though. :)

  2. awww honey we always worry about this with Joshua and his 'Ted' - i am so glad your happy boy is back and you can all smile again xx

    thanks for linking up with #MagicMoments and also for your kind words xx

    1. Your welcome hun x

      I think it's always going to be a worry when your little one has a comfort 'whatever' that they take everywhere with them. Funnily enough we'd already mastered this with our eldest because he had a blanket too, except we had about ten of the same kind so we were set. I just wish I'd thought about it and bought more for the little one. Nevermind, I have my boy back now and he's more cheerful than ever. :) xx
