"Can I come into the room with you mummy?"

In the end he didn't want to sit in the room. He sat outside it on a step reading Flat Stanley and hugging the Big Chick he'd bought himself with the £6 his Uncle Dave gave him at the weekend for helping him with the tidying up as me and my Cuz put the world to rights over a bottle of wine in her garden.

Take all you can in with you to a dentists appointment, but try leave behind fear.
My son my sun I thank you.
