my mom mom


Tuesday, November 6, 2012

We have this hilarious book that we love to read. It's called Skippy Jon Jones and it's about a cat who wants to be everything but a cat. His mom is always telling him to appreciate that he is a cat and "not a goose or a moose, or a bat or a rat. You are a siamese cat." Anyway, that could be a whole nother spiel I could give about appreciating who you really are, but that's not the point of this post. Whenever the mom comes into the picture, Evelyn points to Skippy's mom and says "Cat mom mom." Then without fail she puts her finger to my chest and says "my mom mom."

This obviously has no real long-lasting significance to her, but to me - the mom of two, who is always sensitive its ridiculous - just having her acknowledge that "hey, that's that cat's mom and you're my mom!"does me in every time. I'm sure there will come a day not too distant when she won't be so quick and joyful to rest her finger on my chest and proudly say "you're my mom mom" because little girls grow up, right? Well when that day comes Evelyn, you best know that I will force you to still wear that "I heart mum" tee even if it fits as a leg warmer at that point just to remind you that there was a day when you loved me infinitely :) But I will always be proud to be your mama, Evy Rae. Gosh darn, girl, I could look at your pretty picture all day. STOOOOPPP GROWWINGG!!

  1. Oh, so sweet! I have a few little wooden pigs that I collected and Matthew discovered them and was playing with them and I told him to be careful with 'mommy's pigs'. He was spending the day with daddy over the weekend and was playing with the pigs and pointed to one and said 'mommy'. He kept calling the pig 'mommy' and finally said 'mommy's'. He was trying to tell daddy that those were mommy's pigs. Not calling mommy a pig.

    We got a good laugh out of it.

  4. So adorable! Hilarious idea about making the leg warmers for her. Don't let her grow up too quickly!

  5. Awww, I love this! Also, I clearly need to get on board with the Skippy Jon sensation -- I think Maile would love the rhythm and rhymes.
