Dialog, Part 8

Bubba: Tome here, Mama.

Me: OK sweetie. Where are we going? Bubba leads me across the yard to the wall behind the magnolia tree.

Bubba: Sit here. He points to the top of the ledge.

Me: OK, I’m going to sit right here.

Bubba: Leans down and puts his arms around my neck. I got you, Mama. I got you.

Me: Awwwwww, thank you sweetie.

I then tear up and try not to bawl over how sweet my little boy has become.

I guess I just need to shut up.

Seems that Bubba said it better than any of us did 15+ comments later. Thank God for you, Bubba. :-)

My 2.5 year old Fia will grab her blanket and her guy (some soft critter thingy), walk over to one of us and say "I hode you daddy."

It's nice.

Oh, and when she sneezes, if one of us doesn't say something immediately, she will march over, stand in front of me / her / us and say "God bwess you me."

Oh, and I'm pretty sure you're doing a fine job ma'am. Keep up the good work.

It's good that you appreciate the sweet times.

It doesn't make you a bad, ungrateful mom that the stress gets to you still at other times.

Oh, that's what keeps us from walking away from them when they are on our last nerve. I tell BamBam that he's lucky he's cute when he's in the middle of frustrating me.

BTW, major envy over your fence in your back yard!

Isn't it great when they start randomly doling out love.

That is so sweet. I can understand it would make you tear up. What a lovey!

And "shut up"? Nah... it's all, ALL of it, part of some crazy concept called "Life" ;-)
