To be just four years old, our son has an amazing with with words. Just like tonight after bath time when I was getting his PJ’s and lotion ready, he danced around the room and said, “I’m so glad I picked you as my Mom.”
I was taken aback and asked why he picked me (playing along).
A.J. said, “When I was a baby I was just crawling around looking for a Mom and I picked you. I’m so glad I picked you as my Mom,” followed by the biggest bear hug that a 35 pound four year old boy can muster.
He is priceless.
And he picked me.
And he’s not ashamed to say it loudly and hug me for it.
This is a day when having a four year old is breathtakingly sweet. So I’d like him to stay four years old forever. That’s not much to ask, is it?
He must sense that I needed to hear this because this Mother’s Day I won’t be home with the two men I love. I’ll be driving back from an out of state conference. Already the mommy guilt is kicking in. But when our son says sweet things like this, I feel assured that in my groggy, multi-tasking state of blogging and being home with him – that he still thinks I’m worthy of being his Mother. And for that I say #ThanksBaby because Mommy often wonders if she’s doing a good enough job.
On this Mother’s Day, Pampers wants us all to remember that “when a baby is born, a Mother is born.” These amazing creatures choose us (according to my son’s philosophy) and take us on this journey we call motherhood.
