It was a tough pregnancy and a very tough delivery…and I STILL have the varicose-spider veins to prove it!
But now, my little guy is my dearest best friend!
We watch iCarly together.
We can sit for hours in the living room, just reading.
We sing while we bake goodies for every one.
We walk to school every day – rain, snow or sunny day.
Just this morning, in the “cold” rain, we walked hand-in-hand as we laughed while doing the multiplication table exercises. (My three older ones are almost 21, 18 and 14)
I’m lucky to be able to be with my little guy from Day One!
Two months into the pregnancy, I became a full time stay at home mom!
I said “good-bye to a very lucrative consulting job, and said “hello” to twenty-four-seven hugs and kisses!
My little guy and I will be growing “older” together – dancing and singing in the rain, in the house and in New York subway station!
Just this morning, since he knows that I’m working on a “book”, he says,
“Mom, make sure the beginning of your book is compelling to keep the readers interested.”
“Make sure you use sparkle words, the $20 words.”
(Their teacher reminds them to use their vocabulary words which she calls $20 sparkle words)
“Instead of saying sad, you should write “agonize””.
(Note to self: I have to send his 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. C, a thank-you note!)
So Mr. Magoo III, Happy Birthday!
