While the Bigs were all getting ready for school I told my husband The Toddler was laying in his bed, awake, ready to pounce on the day. The first sign of life and he is up. I was right.
He got up and and said bye to the Bigs and took his potty trained, independent self to the bathroom. After I unstopped the toilet from the whole roll he used we laid in my bed for a minute. He asked about the sounds he was hearing. Birds singing.
The high pitch song of the birds were a curious thing to him so we agreed it would be fun to sit on the porch under a blanket and listen to them. There must be hundreds.
He yells "hey, buddy" at the passing cars and waves. No one seems to notice.
"If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear." ~Winnie the Pooh
He becomes fascinated with the pillows and cushions of the couch we are sitting on and says "Ee watch TV" and when I say that we are watching the birds and clouds he is still again.
Mommin' to a Toddler isn't easy. It's quite hard some days but God reminds me to slow down and talk soft to try to help the world sense. Sometimes that makes all the difference.
