We pick the husband up from the metro close to our house after he gets off work. Little M is very serious about looking for her daddy, and every time someone walks toward our car, she says “is that my daddy??” Then she says “that’s NOT my daddy! Where my daddy?” I love that little M gets excited to see her daddy, and looks for him with such enthusiasm.
The other day she told her kitty that the husband was HER daddy, “not kitty’s.”
We have good friends who are expecting a baby soon, and we have discussed this with little M…that Kelly is having a baby, and the baby is in her belly. I thought it was making a little sense, but last week little M asked when Kelly was going to China to get her baby. I explained that Kelly’s baby was in her belly, and some babies come from their mommy’s bellies, and some come from China. When I asked her about Kelly’s belly getting bigger, she told me that Kelly has an “owie belly.” Clearly, this is something that will take time for her…but how adorable that she asked about China!
Last Friday, when I picked up little M from school, she asked me to carry her, so I did. When I picked her up, she hugged me and said, “I miss you , mommy!” Ahhh, heart melting!
The other day little M was goofing around, and I told her she was silly. She cocked her little head at me, and said, “YOU silly, mommy! You big silly!”
Yes, I have often thought my silliness was big.
