About 10 minutes later Matthew (2 and a half) brought me a very soggy cvamera - "Matthew on camera Mumma!" He had taken it for a wash in his paddling pool. Arghhh. Strangled noise. My nice new beautiful Christmas present camera.
After that Matthew left me alone for a while... even two year olds can sense despair... and all he could say later was "sooo sorry mumma... mumma sad..."
