It's just me and Samuel this week--Chris and Leah are visiting family in Pensacola and Orlando. It has been interesting to observe how Samuel is different when he is the only kid around and gets all the attention. I notice so many things about him that I don't notice when there are two kids. On the other hand, I can't always understand what he says, and Leah is not here to translate for me (she really does translate!) Here are some of my favorite things that Samuel has said lately.
Mom: What are you drinking? Samuel: I'm drinking water.
M: Let's go have some breakfast. S: Chicken nuggets. M: No, how about we have some cereal or mush. S: Mush with sugar on it! (sooger)
M: What color is that? (Trying to see which color he will pick of several on a blanket pattern) S: Polka-dot.
M: Would you like water or milk? S: Water. Milk. Milkshake.
S: I hurt me right here. (pointing and bringing the offending appendage for a kiss better)
Sometimes I'm Supermom but most of the time I'm just Mom. My kids think I'm the bomb anyway--We laugh together and understand each other. They trust me to tell them truthfully how the world works. They want to impress me and show me their tricks.
Even though the floors may be dirty and the laundry usually comes out of a basket instead of a dresser, I'm a super hero to my kids. And that's all that really matters.
