In Which My Son Mocks Me

Oh, how I love my boy. He becomes more precious to me each and every day. Sometimes life sucks all of the energy out of me, but one smile from him and I forget all the trials and tribulations.

And he loves me too, I just know it. I’m sure that he hasn’t forgotten the many months I carried him in my womb, as well as the accompanying nausea and various body pains. And he can’t help but notice that many of those body pains, and even some of the extra baby weight, have not left me yet. Or that I devote my days to his care and safety. My sacrifices have not gone unnoticed.

Just look, look at how my boy loves me….

  1. David has done that for months! HE just said Mama on command last month (19 months old!) and now refuses to again (and he could say the Mama sound easily by 10 months!) Oh well, I know my boy loves me too…just refuses to call me by name!

    That’s hilarious! I can’t wait until he says ‘Mama’ for the first time. You are likely to pee in your pants. 🙂

  3. Well, he stood up pretty much on his own and said DaDa. He seemed rather proud of himself! I can’t wait until you have ‘MaMa’ on video.
