Is it weird that I jot down random things that my kids would say to me? Or any kind of precious conversations I would hear from them? Call me crazy, but I thought some are hilarious or just so preciously sweet that I love to share it with my friends and family on my Facebook page.
I always thought that writing things down is a great idea.. I felt the need for it, especially when my first born started talking. It was a very emotional time for the both of us, because I waited so long for him to speak. I wanted to treasure the out-loud thoughts of his, his feelings and so forth. I remember that it did not matter whatever it was that came out of his little mouth. I am just so thankful that he is talking and that he is telling me everything.
I now have 2 more boys, and I do the same thing with them. I write things down and share it to my Facebook news-feed. The toddler talk conversations cracks me up, because I have no idea what they are talking about and they totally get each other. Super precious and funny.
As I am getting older, I am noticing my memory isn’t the same as it was before. Who knows my memory could be completely gone any day, right?
09.11.2019 Matthew asks his Daddy if he would help him draw. And Daddy does. Once they were done, Matthew runs in the bedroom to show me. Matthew: Look Mommy? (showing me the drawing). Mommy: Who did that? Matthew doesn’t say anything, but points at himself. Mommy: You drew this? Oh wow, you did a great job! He runs out of the bedroom, and goes to his Daddy in the living room. Matthew: Look what I drew Daddy? (and whispers, it’s our secret Daddy that I drew this). Daddy: Ohhh that looks really good Matthew.
09.05.2019 As we were walking to Jacobs school, I said to the boys that I had an idea.. How about we stop by the gate and have Jacob start practicing to go to his class on his own. Jacob: Why?
