Mother of the year award.....I think not!
You know I always say I can't wait for my boys to get older, I am definitely not one of those women who gets that baby envy. I love my babies, and it's been fun to watch them grow and develop and learn and all that....I love it! And I think I can't wait for my boys to be 5, have a conversation with me about their day, I can't wait for little league....you know all that good stuff.
But I tend to forget that as they get older, they get wiser and learn stuff....like how to open doors. The hubs and I used to laugh and say "Remember when they were just blobs, they just laid there on the floor and kicked and drooled and laughed and fussed, but we could walk out of the room and not worry that they were going anywhere?" Yep, I seem to forget that even though they are still young....they do learn....but not enough! And they still kick and drool and laugh and fuss, they just do it while being mobile!
We have not pushed the learning to open a door with Thomas, ....and there is a reason for that! While my mom was away we were watching her house, feeding her kittie, watering, picking up the mail, you know the typical house sitting stuff. And we would go over there and Thomas would help the Hubs water, and so while he was doing that I took Christopher upstairs with me to raid my mom's thread for some blankets I am making and I hear Thomas calling me from downstairs, MOMMY? WHERE ARE YOU? And I don't answer because I didn't want him upstairs. So Christopher and I are keeping quiet, so I figure he would call me a few more times and then he would go back outside and ask Daddy where Mommy go?
Yeah....not so much. He decided to open the door to the garage, and walk outside and start wandering down the street in search of "Where Mommy go?" And I didn't even know it! It was the Hubs who found him wandering down the lane! Good thing my mom lives in a gated low key community where everyone knows who Thomas is!
Think I should win the mother of the year award?? And talk about Mommy guilt! Oh yeah and Thanks Brooke for reminding me about this little incident! =)
So although I am not the baby envy type of mom, and I want my boys to grow up, and learn and stuff. But DANG can they at least tell me when they learn something new like that???
