Mommy, I wake up.
You woke up? Hi my love, how was your nap?
Would you like a snack and some milky?
I bubble water.
“Bubble water, please mommy”, I remind him.
Please, bubble water.
Ok, my love. What do you want to watch?
I watch rocket.
“Rocket please mommy”, I remind him.
And so goes the conversation with my son Mason, my almost 2 and 1/2 year old. It amazes me how much my boys have grown and developed in such a short time. My twins definitely have a language all their own, but I feel lucky that most of the time, I can understand them.
Most of all I love that we now have conversations
I love when Cameron says to me, “Mommy, I come” as he grabs my hand and walks with me to do a certain errand. It completely melts my heart (except when I am in a hurry to get something done) 😉
This time it’s me coming down the stairs after changing into a dress. Mason looks up at me and says:
“Pretty dress, Mommy”
Those three words may be the best compliment I have ever received in my life. Completely spontaneous and from my little son, just mastering the language.
With this language explosion, also comes their love of music. When I ask the boys what they want to sing, Cameron’s response is almost always, “Baa, baa” (aka Baa baa black sheep). Mason’s favorite is probably the ABC song.
Boys, I love you. I love how sweet you are to each other. I love how you remember to say please and thank you most of the time, how you say “bless you” when someone sneezes, and how you say, “Are you okay brother?” when the other one is crying.
May you always be as sweet and kind. May you continue to melt my heart, with your precious moments.
I am so thankful to be your mommy.
Mason, you are such a fun boy, full of laughter and energy. My favorite thing about you right now is how you always take time to smell the flowers, no matter what you are doing. It’s always a reminder for me to stop and enjoy the little things in life.
Cameron my favorite thing about you right now is your kisses and cuddles. You don’t give them too often, so when you do, especially spontaneous ones, I just love it. You remind me not to take things for granted.
Thank you for the lessons you teach me.
Be patient, as I learn to be a wonderful mommy to you.
I have the best, most caring role model as a mom, and you are lucky to have her as a Grammy. Your other Grammy is so patient and creative with you. Your wonderful aunts shower you with love and attention. Learn from these strong, amazing women in your life. Together we will teach you the softer side to being a strong man.
Love you my sweet boys. I am honored to be your mommy.
Happy Mother’s day!
