After I read Kate’s post, Friday Funnies, where she shared adorable and funny stories of her boys, I realized I haven’t really done that here, a space for memory keeping. Total fail.
I want to remember all the little things the boys do, and I just know, over time (very little time), these memories will fade and I’ll forget.
Scrumplet has become really verbal of late. He will crawl to his favorite spot on the couch, stand up, shout “Dada! Dada! Tata! Tata!”, and wag a chubby finger at the front door. I’m guessing his indignant shouts have something to do with the fact that he doesn’t get to go out with Papa every morning. Stuck with me, buddy!
We’re usually on the floor, the Scrumps and me, and sometimes, he’ll go behind me, stand up, and lay his head on the back of my shoulder. It’s a tender moment. I go “Awwww” – then he digs his teeth in.
He likes to crawl away from me these days. He’ll go down the corridor, turn left into the master bedroom and try to shut the door on me. He succeeded in closing the door a few times, making me wish I had X-ray eyes so I can see where he is while I gently push the door open. He always looks guilty on the other side.
Last night at around 8.00pm, just before his bedtime, Monkey pulled my hand, and said, “night night”, telling me to lie down on the couch. He arranged himself around the empty spot right near my legs, and patted my back. “Time for bed, buddy?” “NO! Night night Mama!” Okay then. (I wish I could go to bed at 8 o’clock.)
What have your kids been up to lately that that made you smile?
