The Process

Seren and I were doing the bedtime ritual two nights ago and she turns to me and says, "I'm not so sure I want to go through with the whole process."

What process?

"You know, the process of motherhood. It is kinda gross. I mean like when I was swimming around in your belly, I was probably looking up at your esophagus! That's gross."

--silence from me--

"And like then I had to come out your vagina! That is totally gross."

Ok, well parts of it are kinda gross. But you don't really have to decide now about being a mom.  Right?

"Right. But you know what else I was thinking? I was thinking about how weird it would be if I still nursed from you. And you still nursed from Grammy and Daddy still nursed from Grandma! I mean, poor DAD!! He would be SO dehydrated!"

--stunned look of 'what the hell are we talking about?' from me

"Mom! Grandma lives in Michigan! He would never get any milk! He would be SO dehydrated."

Oh, ok. Totally right. And yes, that would be TOTALLY weird.

Life in Knots

There is a back story which I don't have time to write. It involves home selling. Home offers and disappointments. Life is going well but is full of twists and turns these days. Which is why I had to giggle when Wyeth called me today.

"Mom! When you get home can you untie the knots in my yo-yo string?"

First thing, buddy. That's the first thing I'll do.

Ready for Summer

Today Wyeth called me and said, "Mom. I want to go to Cape Cod and snuggle with you. I just want to go to Cape Cod again and eat ice cream and snuggle. You know, get all snuggly."

I wore a new dress today. And after that snuggly comment he asks, "So, how is the dress?"

He is such a love bug.

Being five rocks.
