I definitely have a momma’s boy. I know that I need to relish this time when he really loves being held, cuddled and wants to be near me 24-7 because soon it will fade as he finds his own independence as a growing boy-child. Today was nothing special, pretty routine in terms of what we did from the moment we got up ’til now. He likes to watch me while I work on the computer sometimes. He would like more, however, to be using the keyboard himself. Instead, I gave him a pencil and a pad of paper and he sat down and started writing out my to-do list for me Once he almost completely filled up my designer pad with swirls and lines I handed him another larger note pad where he could really get creative–and off he went to trace his hand. I know that I will be just like MY mom and save everything that we kids did growing up. How could you not?
