What Mamma Ali has handled today

big hugs good morning,squeezed oranges for us, played ball with Nico, counted down the steps holding his hand, held him tight, run through the rain to Nonna, exchanged onions for eggs, scrubbed the nappies, lunch for him, lunch for me, lunch for husband, drive to pool, feel the water, gripped the bike, glass of wine spritz, picked up book at hairdresser, cake in mouth driving home, hand painting in bath, dried off his hair, mouth-organ to lips while hands to cream bottom, shhh pat pat the teddies night night, switch out the light.
