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!!
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?!
