Morning Has Broken

This morning I was taking my daily 5:30am shower. I get early so I have a little time alone. As I stepped out of the shower I saw five little fingers pressed under the door. They wiggled a greeting and slipped away. I opened the door to find B laying with his arms stretched above his head face down on the floor waiting patently for me to emerge. I invited him in the bathroom and he began to talk.

Mommy why do you take showers and not baths? I dreamt I saw Captain America and he was flying and he said Hi B and I said Hi Captain America.......

He chatted away as I got dressed

Mommy why do dinosaurs not be alive anymore? Why do they have big big poops not little poops like I make?

He chatted on as I put on my make up

Poops is a potty word right? I am in the potty so I can say poop poop poop. Why you not say poop mommy?

Little S got up. She saw me and smiled and reached out her little arms and yelled

Daddy!!!!!

As I nursed her B continued

Now I am out of the potty so I cant say it anymore but i wanna say it mommy can I huh? Can I say poop?

I brushed my teeth and S laughed and laughed.

I brushed her teeth and she spit on the floor like her big brother (although he spit in the sink)

Then she smiled a big toothy grin (with her four teeth)

You know I don't think there is anymore of a perfect way to begin my day.

(OK so sue me I gotta do a sentimental post every now and then. I think its in every mommy contract to ohh and ahh over their kids every now and then. Don't worry tomorrow Ill be crabby old me I'm sure.)

I love sentimental posts! Frankly, I am impressed that you shower at 5:30 AM, and that you weren't crabby because B was awake the moment you got out of the shower.

I hope you're printing out posts like this so you can save them to read when they're little devils--or when they're 16 and driving you crazy! :)

READ THE BOOKS!!!! So far out of two books, I have only cried one time. They are great!!!!!!!!

Susan said...

This is an interesting post, I suppose it's because I am just not the mommy type, that I don't appreciate the "awww-factor", but if it weren't for mommies, none of us would be here, right? Take care and wait...what's that in your hair? Toothpaste? Your friend, "Nervous around Kids".

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

I love this sweetness. Truly.

Kate said...

Sounds good to me too!

Beth Partin said...

Hi, Suzie,

I saw your comment on Vered's blog and wondered if you'd be willing to send me a short list of paranormal romance novels. I wrote one once (I think), and I would like to see what's in the field.

Vodka Mom said...

That's so much nicer than being called a fucking bitch as you rush out the door.


sigh.

Tales From the Eurovan said...

You don't have to apologize for sweet posts! We need to be able to remember these on the days when things are, how shall we say, not so sweet!
Take care,
Julie

April said...

April said...

Yeah, they usually know how to do just enough to make us remember why we love them so!
