I am going to miss the way that my little ones adore me and want me to be with them. As a mom of both preschoolers, a teenager and those in between, I already miss the time that I used to spend with my older kids just hanging out. Now there are ipods, e-mails, phone calls and friends .ReplyDelete
I am going to miss sitting on the floor and playing games, telling silly jokes, and reading books to them. I am going to miss their sweet little ways that they say things, and their slobbery kisses and the way their face lights up when I come home.ReplyDelete
I'm going to miss how their faces light up when they see me for the first time after I've been gone, even for a short time. Also when they say out of the blue, "Hey mommy, I love you!"ReplyDelete
I'm going to miss watching my husband interact with them at this age. There is something about watching a tough Army guy snuggling with a toddler that melts my heart.ReplyDelete
There's a lot I'm going to miss about my younger two boys because I'm already missing it with my 16 year old. I'll miss the sweet and sloppy hugs and kisses, the long days we spend together doing different activities and the sweet, innocent looks they give me when I walk in on a huge mess they just made by dumping their cereal bowls on the carpet.ReplyDelete
It's not only hormonal pregnant women that teared up at this! I am going to miss the way my sweet baby never, ever gets tired of me touching him and loving him. He never turns me away when I want a hug or a kiss, and in fact, he is absolutely delighted when I want those things. I'll miss the way my 17 month old holds my head to his so that our faces are touching, and lays with me that way for a long time, just content to be as close to me as he can possibly get.ReplyDelete
Im going to miss doing my daughter's hair every morning. She's worn pigtails every single day since she was about 1. One day she wont need me to do her hair so I'll really miss that part.ReplyDelete
After changing my son's diaper, I will "fall" on him and kiss him. And he will say "let's play old lady hair." Then he run his hands through my hair and makes it look like a bird's nest. Two comments: I am not an old lady! Where he get that?! And the woman who said, "I never had beautiful hair until my child ran his fingers through it," must have been bald. :)ReplyDelete
