A Second birthday

We forgot until we were half way through making breakfast, when we turned to each other: 'they're two! You're two!' 

Celebratory toast and jam and then frantic packing and cleaning to get to the ferry on time after a long holiday on a windy isle. 

Ferry fish and chips for lunch, plans to stop in Skye for some birthday cake derailed by two two year olds, fast asleep in the back of the car. 

A long drive home, through mountains and moors and forests. Pizza for dinner, a low-nutrient day. 

A bath and bed and asleep before the lights are out. Us and them.

Two. Two two year olds. Two.
