Today as I was walking through the living room, I see Addison licking on Audrey's little play electronic computer. I told her not to put her mouth on the computer. Addison, my adorable 2-year-old, replied "'da umpuder (computer) say use mouf on number". I walked closer just as she pressed the button again. The computer actually said "Use the mouse to select a number". Hahaha! Audrey and I laughed until we cried! Addison didn't realize why we were laughing, but she kept licking the computer because she now had an audience! Such a funny girl!
Addison's new thing is to hug my leg tightly and say, "Mommy, I wuv you moon back". Translation: "Mommy, I love you to the moon and back."
Melt my heart!!!
Conversation between Audrey and me the other night while snugging at bedtime.
AK: Mommy why do you always wear those rings? (pointing to my wedding/engagement rings)
Me: Because those are the rings that Daddy gave me when we got married.
AK: When will I get those married rings?
Me: One day when you are much older and you find a wonderful guy who loves you and that you want to marry.
AK: Well, I don't know any boys that don't have a mommy, do you?
Me: Well, if a boy marries a girl, she wouldn't be his mommy, she would be his wife. Like I am your Daddy's wife, not his mommy.
AK: But you cook and clean for him and wash his clothes too, like you do for me and sissy. And you do 'cause you're our mommy.
(OHHHH boy! How do I even go there???? Haha!)
So I just answered...
I do all that because I love y'all, not because I am your mommy or a wife.
(It was the best I could come up with in that "caught-off-guard-but-trying-not-to-laugh" moment. )
I just love these conversations I have with my munchkins!
