you will never win with a three year old
Let me set the scenario..
I am sleeping at Kd and Baby boy's house
kd has to leave very early in Am for work in BR
so it's easier for me to spend the night,
and I love going to bed and waking up to the sounds
of little kiddo's again.
Last night, Bean is watching a movie before bedtime
so I decide to go and lay with her for a bit.
She cuddles up with me and begins the conversation"
(red is Bean, lblue is myself)
MUMSIE I DECIDED I AM GOING TO HAVE A
MOMMY FACE, BECAUSE I WANT TO BE
A MOMMY BUT I DON'T WANT NO BABY
IN MY STOMACH.
Well baby, you can't be a Mommy unless you either
have a baby in your belly or you get another baby
somewhere. Why don't you want a baby in your belly?
IT SEEMS SO BORING, I JUST WANT A BABY.
AND I HAVE JOLEE SO I AM GOING TO JUST
TAKE THAT BABY.
But baby, as you get big, so will J.belle, so
she can be a Mommy at the same time as you,
she is not going to stay a baby.
MUMSIE, YOU HAD SOME BABIES IN YOUR TUMMY.
Yes, I did, who are my babies?
RODDIE AND NANNIE SILLY.
Yeah, and I didn't think it was boring.
She is quiet for a little while, in the crook of my arm.
Then her little head pops up and she says,
MUMSIE, GUESS WHAT!
I HAVE A GREAT IDEA.
WHEN JOLEE GROWS UP AND SHE
WANTS TO BE A MOMMY THEN SHE
CAN HAVE ONE BABY FOR ME AND
ONE FOR HER IN HER BELLY.
Oh the things that go through this little girls head.
I reassure her that there are many many years before
she has to worry about growing up so I don't
want her to worry about that.
GOOD, BECAUSE I REALLY WANT
TO BE JUST A MUMSIE BECAUSE YOU
BIG AND YOU STILL LIKE TO PLAY WITH TOYS.
Melts me every time.
