It’s all better

The Husband was wrestling in our bed with the boys.  A favorite past time, that I willingly forgo.  A girl can only evade a broken nose for so long before she’s over the game.  I took the time to catch-up on the many blogs I missed last week.  (If I haven’t made it to you, I’m working on it.)

As I enjoyed my moments of peace, listening to the sounds of tigers fighting, Tornado S walked into the room.  He didn’t seem to notice me.  He put on a construction hat, pulled out the tools, and went to work on a boat.  He hammered; he drilled; he screwed; he had no idea what to do with the clamp.  All the while he sang.

“It’s all better.  It’s all better.  It’s all better.”

It dawned on me how fast he was growing.  How sweet he was growing.  How smart he was growing.  How creative he was growing.  He’s not a baby any more.

Well, he told me that last week out of the blue.

“Mommy!  I no baby!”

I know.  That’s why I got one on the way, big boy.

    Wish I could say that, sorta, sometimes, when no one is acting like one anyway. Now that the dudes are all moving towards independence I’m starting to feel the I-want-a-baby ache. I need a freakin’ hobby!

    I love what you say at the end “That’s why I got one on the way, big boy!” I sooooo wish we could have another. Yes, I know they wake you up at night and there’s never a minute to yourself but they grow so quickly and I miss that sweet baby smell and baby cuddles, falling asleep in my arms. You are going to have so much fun! Enjoy every minute — but I already know you will!

    I totally feel you on this. Ernie is 2 1/2 now and is no longer a baby either. This is why we are now trying. 🙂 My last baby. I wonder if we will get a girl?

    pBd~ You could always volunteer at the hospital holding babies. They’re always looking for someone.
    Maureen~ I’m glad I could do that for you.
    jane~ I know. I think this is the last pregnancy, but we’ll see in two years, eh?
    insider~ LOL I’m the world’s worst speller, so I get ya. If I could get this cough taken care of, I’d be at my fighting shape.
    joz~ *shakes the dice and throws* Come on girl!
