AngelBaby is quite the talker these days. She just rambles on and on and on. Sometimes I can even understand her.
As she is learning to speak in full sentence, she is also learning the fine art of manipulation.
At various times throughout the day, yesterday and today, I would attempt to sit down and construct my daily blogging diatribe. Each time I sat at the computer, AngelBaby was right there, her arm snuggly around mine, staring up at me, pushing the buttons (mine, as well as the keyboards) saying 'iyuyoumommy'.
Well, of course, no matter what important musings are floating through my head, I sorta have to stop and give the little imp some lovin'.
It doesn't stop there though.
After, I don't know, 10 or 12 times of this particular action, I have pretty much had enough ... now don't get me wrong, I love AngelBaby, she is my final child and I cherish each and every moment - but I can only do that for so long and then mommy needs ... well ... some mommy time.
And so ... I finally pull out my ace in the hole - the Winnie the Pooh movie - not a short, a whole movie, we love this movie! Seriously, LittleMiss knows all the words and even SweetiePie and Heartbreaker will sit through at least 2/3rd of it ...
Do you know what my little punkin' says? Hmmm, do ya? Any ideas?
She says 'no mommy, I miss you, I miss you too, too much' ...
Hummm. Tell me what a mom is supposed to do with that?
Well, I struggled for about 30 seconds, I really had some witty stuff on my mind .. honest, I was even thinkin' about it at like 3am last night ... well ya know, I went and sat, once again, with my AngelBaby, letting her fall asleep on me, drool and all.
and I loved it.
so so much.
Before I was married, I had a hundred theories about raising children and no children. Now, I have three children and no theories. - John Wilmot
An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:20-21
