"Mom. Mom. Mama. I know you hear me. Mama. Mom. Mamaaaaaaaa.
Why are you rolling over? We both know this game is over. I’m awake, let’s get up, let’s go play. Look at Dad, sleeping all peacefully…I’ll be back for him later.
Oh, you’re awake? Hiiiii…fancy seeing you here this morning! What have you been up to all night? Did you miss me? I got to hang out with Dad a bit last night, around 2ish…finished up the Game of Thrones, totally hated the ending.
So, where are we going today? Oh…out in the living room, sweet. Hey, would you mind changing my diaper, this thing adds like 10 pounds.
Man, I am starving. Is it time for my bottle? Real talk, I could eat like an entire bag of goldfish right now. Wait…why are you getting your coffee first? Just get my bottle. it’s literally right next to that coffee cup and yet you are reaching past it. Unbelievable. Not trying to judge you, but I cannot believe you are getting your drink before mine. By the way, you shouldn’t use that much creamer. Seriously, do you even taste the coffee part? Oh, now you want to get my bottle? Now that it’s convenient for you? So typical of mothers these days. It’s always coffee first and babies second.
Hey, you wanna go sit in that comfy chair so I can rest my head on the pillow while I’m drinking my bottle? I’ll hold it! No, you hold it. No, I’ll hold it. No, you hold it. Ahhh….it’s so warm. Tastes a bit off though. Is this 2%? Did you forget to go to the store for my whole milk again? You would’ve never given my brother 2%. It’s not even organic either. Are you trying to poison me? No, no I’ll still drink it…I’ll manage.
Why do you have the news on if you are just going to look at your phone? Let’s stop pretending and turn on Mickey Mouse…he’s informative, entertaining, and his theme song is my jam! "It’s the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse…come inside it’s fun inside.” It IS fun inside. Goofy…now that guy is a riot. Don’t you just love his jokes about stinky shoes? Classic! And the ‘Hot Dog Dance’ – if you’ve got a problem with the hot dog dance then you’ve got a problem with yourself.
Okay, now put me down so I can go take all of those DVDs off the shelf. I just fixed those last night, why did you put them back up? I’ll just crawl right over here….wait…is that a Cheerio? Why would someone leave a perfectly good Cheerio under this couch? Let me take care of that real quick. Mmmmm. What else is under here? A plastic baggie, yes! I love plastic baggies..so crinkly. The only thing that would make this day better is if I found a straw under here too. Before I fix the DVDs, I better just check and see if I’m still not allowed to climb up here by the fireplace. Haha, I knew she would come and take me down from there…so predictable.
Who is that coming down the stairs? It’s brother! Hi brother, hi, hi, hi, hi! You wanna play with me, do ya, do ya, do ya? No, not blocks. Those were so two weeks ago. What do you think I am, 9 months? Just give me your iPad. Why do all of these little buttons shake when I press them? I’m just going to press the little Xs on top of the boxes….oh look, they are going away. What a fun game.
Wait a minute, did he forget to close the gate? He forgot to close the gate! The stairs are open. Nobody is looking, time to make a break for it. Almost there, almost there, almost….no!!!!! No problem, sister will be awake soon and she will leave it open for me on purpose. She thinks its funny when I run from Mama.
Where are we going now, Mama? Not the rocking chair! That one always puts me to sleep. Oh, this snuggle feels nice. I’m gonna put my head on your shoulder for just a minute. Not too long though. Lots to do before nap time. I still need to rearrange your Tupperware cabinet, test out Sissy’s crayons on the hardwood floors, watch a little Daniel Tiger, and maybe even crawl behind the couch to find hidden treasures. A baby’s job is never done. But those things can wait for now Mama. Just rock me a little longer and keep singing our song. I heard you tell Daddy that I’m getting so big. Soon my legs will be as long as brother’s and my hair will be as long as sister’s. Will I fit in your lap still? I hope so, because you would really miss snuggling with me. Why are you looking at me like that? Can you see me growing right now? I’m just going to close my eyes, just for a minute. You can keep watching me though while I sleep. I know you do that sometimes. Silly Mama."
