One Simple Thing

Today when I walked into the sitters to pick up my son, it was business as usual. She handed him to me, her and I talked while he was patiently waiting for me to finish, but then he looked at me....laid his head on my chest...and hugged/snuggled me for a good 1-2 minutes. It was so tender and sweet. It is amazing to me that such a simple moment can make my crappy day perfect! I love him and all of the happiness he brings into my life. <3>

Runaway Stroller

Today was like many May days in Syracuse, sunny but cold & windy. Since it was too cold to go outside, we decided to go for a nice walk around the mall. My husband takes out the stroller and I throw my purse into the bottom. As my husband reaches in to get the baby out of the car and I reach into the car to get the diaper bag, we see our stroller shooting across the parkinglot at 15 miles per hour! No joke, it had to be at least that fast. Since my husband had the baby, I am now chasing the stroller across the entire parking lot! This doesn't sound too bad except that it was a HUGE parking lot and the wind kept blowing it faster and further away! On top of that, I am laughing so hard I can barely run!!! Finally, the stroller hits curb and flips into the air collapsing upside down. I just about lost it lauging so hard!! I look back and see my husband practically in tears laughing so hard!! Ahhhhh.....sometimes life gives you these rediculous moments of hilarity to remind you to laugh in life. :)

Where is my cuddle bear?

I don't know what is going on with my son the past few days, but it is almost as if he could care less about his mama! He usually is snugglie and kissey and sweet, and lately he has been pushing me away and had a bit of an attitude. The first day I chalked it up to the fact that maybe he isn't getting enough of a nap at the sitters, but it has been almost an entire week of this!! I miss my sweet little man who lives to love his mama!

Funny Story of the Day:

How many of you have seen the Bandaid commercial where the little boy or girl gets hurt, and the mother kisses the booboo of the crying kid causing the kid to instantly stop crying? That is a mother's job right! Well, I always snuggle my son when he gets hurt...little or big...my husband often says I am going to turn him into a "wuss". (I hate when men assume that a little one needs to soothe themselves because they are afraid of them turning into wusses...he is a year old! He isn't supposed to be a tough guy!)

Anyway, today I am about to hop in the shower when I hear my son start crying REALLY hard. I run out of the bathroom, naturally, to see what has happened. Apparently he had hit his head on the door...so I reach for him (husband had picked him up at this point) and my husband says "I got it covered! You always get the hurt snuggles" Keep in mind the baby is reaching for me and crying because being cured by mommy is the routine. So I respond with "Just give him to me, he's reaching for me." Needless to say, an arguement actually developed out of this!

It wasn't a big arguement, but still. Doesn't this man realize that my heart physically hurts when he cries! So, we go from me babying him to hogging the snuggles?? MEN! lol
