They’ve been sitting together, “curled up like babies in an egg” for almost half an hour now. C spotted an airplane high in the sky and was certain it was a comet based on its tail so now he’s ensuring E it is heading away from us and they are safe. I’ve been pushing them, just sitting on the floor and reading lovely blogs on my phone.

Before the sweet cuddling started, C had a turn at the swing while E whined for his fair share of time. Then E was swinging and C kept pushing him too crazy and there was bickering, something this morning has revolved around. 

But now they are curled around each other tightly, content and together. It’s nice when the emerge from conflict to find a balance with each other and then stay there for a while.
