Things I´m Going to Miss Someday

Posted on January 2, 2008 - Filed Under Kids |

Waking up to a certain little somebody chanting “Papapapapapapa” from the crib at 3 am.

Being the only one who can kiss an owie better, even if I´m a block away.

Grubby little fingers grabbing at my pen every time I write because no other pen except Mama´s will do.

Running commentaries on Toy Story 2 as we watch it for the millionth time. “He fell. Look, a car! Run, Buzz, run!”

Tripping over the zillions of little cars that appear magically underfoot no matter how often I put them away.

Having my desk be the drop-off point for orange peels, nispero seeds, empty cups and broken crayons.

Being pulled out of my chair by a toddler who simply must have a dance partner for the Hi5 theme song.

Reading Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? ten times in a row.

    Cherish those things, girl! Grayson is already beginning to grow out of many of them. I don’t know what I’ll do when Grant gets too old for these things! Kinda makes me misty eyed thinking about it.

    Oh yes… these are some of the things to be ‘cherished’?? MISSED I say!!!

    Another would be a saying, I am sure you will be using it soon if not already,… “will you put your cloths away and tidy your room, NOW”!!!

    I know I use to get it a lot!

    Very cute. :) Something about the pen thing…I used to do that when I was little, with my dad’s main pen. You know the kind where those executive people stick on their front pocket. To me, since my dad used it, it’s cool. So maybe that’s how he felt too! “Mum uses it, so this pen is the coolest!” :)

    Jessica, I keep thinking that I´m going to run out of these moments real fast, since the boys are so close in age . . . at least you have a bit of space. :)

    Bernie, we haven´t gotten to that point yet. Cleaning up is still a game so far.

    Gloria, my dad used to use the coolest pens, too! Mom never let me use them though, because they bled when water got on the paper. :D It´s quite possible that Dorian feels that way about my pen.
