Anyway, I was busily going on about "this is the third time I have asked you to sit down, you'll be off to the thinking spot, blah, blah, blah" when I heard him say: "Look Mum!"
As I put on my best cranky face, he continued with, "I have made a turtle out of my peas".
Despite myself, my eyes were drawn down to his plate and 'lo and behold, I found myself face to face with a rather perfect looking pea turtle.
It made me smile. Melt. Defuse.
Geez it is hard to stay cross at someone as gorgeous as he is!
What's a Mum to do?
