I don't have a voice. Not in the metaphoric way...nope in the literal, I open my mouth and nothing comes out, totally frustrating way. Well, frustrating for me, probably not for my kids. Anyway...I am feeling a tad under the weather, so I have been trying to just rest today so that I can get back to the normal chaos tomorrow. I have decided to take advantage of this down time and write a quick blog about Jonathan before I forget.
You see my littlest one, my sweet baby, has gone and turned into a boy on me. It happened practically over night. One minute he needed me for everything and the next minute he was one of the big boys, running and wrestling with the gang. Oh my.
The other day we had to go somewhere and I needed to wake him up. This goes against every fiber of my maternal being, but we were running out of time and it was a necessity. I went into his room and sat down on his new big boy bed and looked at him. He was sleeping so soundly. He looked so peaceful and angelic. I couldn't help myself. I just curled up beside him to watch him for a minute. His eyes fluttered open for a second. He reached his little hand out and gently rubbed my cheek and said "I wuv you so much Mommy." Oh my goodness. My heart melted and broke all at the same time! I love you too! It was just the little thing that I needed right at that moment. He put a smile on my face.
Well, I should have known that he wasn't about to let me get all full of myself. Nope, kids have a way of keeping us grounded. The next day I was in the shower. I have no idea why I thought that this was something that I could have done alone. Oh my, no! He let himself in the bathroom. "Hey Mom!" he called. "What?" I asked. "I so sorry Mommy," he said. "Sorry for what?" I foolishly asked. "I so sorry for calling you a butthead Mommy. I so sorry." I said, "But you didn't call me a butthead." "Oh yes I did." Well ok then. Ummm apology accepted...I guess.?.?
He is always ready...guns blazing!
