It’s seems I have settled on a Friday posting theme… Remembering.
These posts are all about noticing the little things, the things that might otherwise be lost in all the day to day craziness.
These posts are about finding the wonderful in among all the piles of washing and and whinging.
These posts are about loving today and not always wishing for tomorrow.
These posts are about not forgetting.
This week I need to remember…
The way he calls him ‘Dad-un’. Not ‘Dadda’ not ‘Daddy’ but “Dad-UN”.
The way he calls her “Doo-Doo”.
The way he refuses to say anything that even remotely resembles the word “Izzy” and how much she wishes he would.
The way he copies the exact tone and inflection of the big kids when he says “Mu-um, Mu-um, Mu-um, Mu-um”.
The way he claps and yells “Yay.. YAY!” whenever he hears clapping, or when a song or some music ends.
The way he says good night to his toes as I zip them into his sleeping bag – “Tat-tar toes”
The way he chats with the chooks… “Hey-oh Chookins. Dook dook dook…”
I need to remember how glorious and amazing it is when a non-speaking baby becomes a chatty toddler.
