What is it about motherhood that makes you want to publicly declare the one-of-a-kind love you have for your one-of-a-kind kid, but you can’t... because no words are one-of-a-kind enough?
That’s how I’m feeling tonight, but here I am wanting to tell the world that this birthday boy of mine is so dear to me, so I'm floundering for the words anyway.
He turned three today. It’s kind of selfish, but I hate that he had to do that—turn three. But I figure that if I jot down the things I love about him at this age, it won't be quite as hard to watch him grow up because I'll always have the memories.
I love how affectionate he is. Out of the blue, he'll come give me a big hug and look me deep in the eyes and tell me he loves me.
I get to hear, "I wub you, Mommy" almost every day, totally unsolicited.
When I carry him up the stairs, he often asks,
“You okay, Mom? (I think he knows how HEAVY he is.)
“Yeah, I’m okay…are you okay?”
"Yeah, I okay."
He hates getting left behind and is always saying, "Wait for me!"
And just now he came into the room and buried his head in my lap and said, "I just missed you, Mommy."
The other day I overheard him and Maggie talking...
Maggie: "When I grow up I'm going to be a ballet teacher."
Magson: "No, no! you can't grow up!"
Atta boy...set her straight!
Yeah, his open and sweet way of showing his love toward us is definitely something I love about my birthday boy. Snapshots of the festivities coming soon!
