My little smile finder...
Gage has worked wonders for me...he just makes me smile.
Lately, he's been saying some funny stuff....and is so very talkative!
"Popagalloon." = Pop a balloon = Mommy accidentally popped a balloon.
"Arm Knee" = elbow. How cute is that? He knows he has a knee on his leg, so he thinks his elbows are knees for his arms... Oh, it's just funny to me.
"Hose yoooo" = Hold you = Will you pick me up & hold me?
"Suckie purse" = I want a sucker, and you keep them in your purse. (So, to all of my female family & friends---if you come over, & Gage points to your purse & says "suckie purse", I'm pretty sure he's not dissing your bag. He just wants candy. Unless of course your purse sucks---then he may just be telling the truth...)
Oh, what else? There really are so many things that he says throughout the day that just make me smile...
And, I said "crap" yesterday. Of course, he repeated it...repeatedly. So, while I should have been pissed at myself....(1) it was soooo funny & cute to hear that come out of his mouth, and (2) it could have been any other word, and worse!
The ultimate smile finder....after the fact, of course. Picture Gage & I sitting in the living room at his little table---coloring. Picture the florist coming to the door. We go, we answer the door, "thank you for the flowers..." etc. Gage did not want me to shut the front door, so I left it open. The glass door was shut though.
So, there I am reading the card, showing Damon, & just looking at the flowers. Then I realize---Gage is coloring all over the damn door! So, I tell him to stop, and I attempt to take the colors out of his hands. So, picture my almost 2 year old in his little pajamas, running from me---clenching crayons, and his arms just spread out as far as he can get them. As he runs from me---he's trying to color on any and all surfaces that he passes before I pry the colors from his little white clenched fists.
Draining in the moment....but funny looking back on it.
He's making me feel better. He keeps us very, very busy.
