Wanna Be a Rockstar? Be a Momma!!

My topic this week: Wanna be a Rockstar? Be a Momma!!

Hey Everybody!! Big props for your comments on last weeks topic. I love them!! Especially: No Fred No! Ha!! It is amazing, this parenting job is seriously a delicate/tough/rewarding and awesome job!!!

I also would like to let ya know, my blog will be a little shorter this week because, I am shooting a pilot!! So Mama is verrrry busy! Yea!!! But it is a “secret”, so I  can’t let ya know the title yet, so Ssssssh!!  I will let ya know more when I can!!!

So, this week, my little baby has decided that “MAMA!” is her new favorite word and person in the whole wide world!!

A day in our house goes like this.  I walk thru the door, “Mama!!”
I am trying to work upstairs on the computer, she yells from downstairs, “Mama!!!”
I am in the bathroom, “Mama!!!!”  This one is usually followed by me trying to make a mad dash for the bathroom, trying to close the door as Kent feebly tries to restrain her, as she quickly slips thru his fingers, away from his grasp, as I just barely get to the door and start to close it,,Bam! Luna Marie slams into it, pushes it with her hand, and wedges her body in the crack and bumps her butt in the door frame and wiggles in!! Of course, I am laughing so hard while I watch this-which doesn’t help the fact that I have to pee!- which is why I was going to the bathroom in the first place!  It is too funny! What is it that is SO great about coming in the bathroom with me?!! Honestly, I don’t do anything special in there!-it’s not like rockets fly outta my butt- but to Luna Marie, there is NO better place to be!

This MAMA thing has been going on for the last 2 weeks.  It feels like 2 months!-but I know it is only 2 weeks!
It is amazing, she was just fawning over DADA not to long ago. Now it is totally different. Luna Marie will lean out of his arms when she is upset to get to me! If she is upset or crying? It is ME she wants!  Like somehow the fact that I am holding her makes it all better!! I am SO popular.  Apparently I am just awesome, who knew right?
I mean, it really it IS SUCH an ego boost! Like somehow I got a superpower all of a sudden!
She wants to be with me ALL the time.

My back sure knows she wants to be with me and held by me ALL THE TIME!!
(Ouch!)

Everyone tells me to “Enjoy it! It will go fast!”
I used to not understand what they were talking about.. I guess ya gotta have your own little bundle of love to see EXACTLY how fast time flies and how fast they change.  It really does seem like light speed!

The other evening, I was particularly exhausted, after dinner, the clean up, the book, the bath and then the wrestling match to put her diaper and pajamas on!  While navigating all of this, I thought to myself “Whew! I made it thru another evening, another “nightime routine” done! I can check it off my list!” But then I realised,,,
This was another night of “18 month old giggles, playing and sweetness” that I will not be able to get back. Ever.

Soon enough, Luna Marie will be 13 years old and more interested in shopping, texting and being with her friends  than hanging out with me. Soon enough, I will not have the power to make it “all better” just by holding her when something goes wrong in her life. :(
Soon enough, she will leave our house and go live somewhere else and have her own life,, and be away from me 24 hours a day. !!!!!

My heart aches at those thoughts.

So after, I took that little “jump into the future”,  I stopped, looked down and the little curly haired girl- fresh from the bath- in the diaper and striped organic pjs and thought “Thank you for another lovely day Little One” and then I kissed her forehead and whispered “Nite Nite” as I put her down in her crib and laid her doll by her side.

Of course, 10 minutes later she was standing in her crib, fussing big time because she had pee in her diaper and was irritated that she couldn’t sleep!!  Man! We girls sure know how to pee up a storm don’t we?!

    Good luck with her and just remember, this is the easy part. pre-teen and beyond are tough, tough, tough,. somewhere between now and then you go from Mommy who knows everything to this woman who knows nothing. We have 4 kids and life is great in Texas,

    Constance,
    I’m thirteen and I never want to be around my mom, because I’m a teenager, and ya know I older now so I’m more intrested in boys and fitting in, my friends and not my mom!! I’m sure Luna Marie will still be interested in you because you’re cool, my mom is not! I have two twin girl cousins and they’re the same exact age as Luna Marie and my poor aunt, same with you they always need her so I go over her house once a week to help her with them. Let me tell you they are a handful, but I love taking care of them!(The diapers not so much!) Thanks again for sharing your story and good luck hun!! :)

    Thank you Constance!
    For reminding me of how precious this time really is. I’m 18 weeks pregnant and I will definitely treasure the time I have with the baby when they are so tiny and dependant of me and Daddy.
    And good luck with the Pilot!!

    I go through the same every night with my daughter.. She is 19 months old, I work full time and every time I pick her up from the babysitter is like the biggest super star walked in the door..”mommy, mommy. mommy!!!. I love it. It makes my day… Enjoy it

    Constance,
    Thank you for being so open and honest in your blogs! My husband and I are starting to consider having a baby and we’re nervous about it. Your insight has made me a little more relaxed and excited about the possibility. Your daughter is adorable and she’s very lucky to have such wonderful parents!! Good luck with the new pilot!

    Hi Constance! I love this blog I was just thinking the same thing about my 8 yr old son. Time flies so fast with kids it is very scary. I would love for him to be in this stage forever. I cant imagine how I will feel when he doesnt want to spend time with me anymore :(

  8. Tabatha says:

    I am 23 now and love being with my mom… I love our days of hanging out at the house or just running errands. Even when I was 13 and we would fight and annoy each other I still loved being around her. She is the one person that I was able to always come to and talk to. She always strived to have open communication whether it be about school or boys. CM even when she is 13 and doesnt want to be aroundyou keep talking to her. I know too many of friends who dont have relationships with their mothers because the communication stopped in the teen years. Good luck… Luna is gorgeous

    Constance,

    Let me just say that I am 26 years old and till this day, my mommy’s hug STILL makes everything better!!! There is no other hug, or voice in the world more comforting than the one of my mothers. She continues to be my ROCKSTAR!!! Don’t doubt that Luna Marie will feel the same. (and might i add…mothers really do know it all) :)

    • Jes says:

      I have to agree w/Evies comment. I lost my mom at 25 and she was my best friend & rockstar, these have been the longest 10 years. We would fight while I was growing up, but not a 1/2 later we were back to being best friends. Luna is very luck to have you and keep up the closeness as she grows even when she pushes for freedom. I was the only one in college that talked to their mom everyday and friends use to say how they envied that closeness we have. Thanks for sharing your stories & pictures.

    I have an 18 month old son and he has yet to say Momma. He says every other word in the book including Dad. My mother in law says that he’s said Momma before when he’s fussing, but I’ve never heard it. Everyone tells me that once he knows how to say it, he will never stop saying it… so I’m patiently waiting for that day. He knows I’m Mom, but usually comes to me when he wants me. I can’t wait to hear him call me Momma. Looking at your last picture, reminded me of how he gives me kisses. They are so loving at this age.

  13. Natalie says:

    I sooo think of the future and start getting sad of the same thoughts! Her leaving me and not needing me but I just hope with all the love that I am giving her right now will stay with her and every now and then will call her mom up and say I Love you!
    Wish you and Luna a happy and wonderful relationship and good luck with the Pilot!

    I have a 7 month old son. Every night when he falls asleep in my arms after his bottle I hold him for an extra 10 minutes in the dark and quiet relishing the moment. It brings tears to my eyes thinking of the day when I will no longer be able to snuggle him and that he may not want me to.

    Keep up the blogs, you are a wonderful resource for mommies everywhere!

  17. Stacy says:

    I love your blog! I read you weekly on People & now here. I have 2 boys, but I am also the rock star mom at home! I work a lot, but when I’m home they always want to be with me (in the bathroom, in the shower, a little too much probably)! But, you’re right – the time is flying by & I can’t imagine the day when they don’t need me anymore (sniff, sniff).

  18. Bridget Parker says:

    I want you to remember this, Luna Marie will always need her momma. There will be times she will believe that is not the case, but we moms are always there in the wings to pick up the pieces, hold, and guide them.
    They are never to old to not need their momma. That being said, we mommas need to know when to let them figure things out on their own and to support their decisions, even when we disagree.
    Luna Marie is blessed to have you and her daddy.

    My youngest is getting ready to start kindergarten. Those thoughts are coming at me constantly now. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Kristy says:

    My son just turned to and its ALL about Mamma and dadda. Some things momma can do others dadda has to do! Like for example this morning we were in a rush as always to get out the door off to work and day care, but Dadda was the only one allowed to get him dressed this morning and when it came to his shoes it was NOOO Momma!So i got his socks and shoes on and off to the car we go! ITs so funny he gets so excited some times and tries so hard to talk with us and in stead of momma or dadda he runs it together. Mommadadda this or i wanna ride…mommadadda. I love it! I love you blog thanks for sharing!
