T is for Talking

So, I’m very much winding down on the ideas and writing's a good thing we're on T!  I've also noticed that I am not capturing as many readers or followers as I was in the beginning, oh well, so I’m boring.  That's news.  *insert sarcasm here*.  I am listening to my son talking.  It’s a never ending train of thoughts piled on top of thoughts mixed with random noises his body and mind have insisted he make and topped off with a "Mommy!!!  Mommy!!  Mommyyyyy!!!  And to think, I had him tested because he didn't really say anything until he was nearly 3.  It's like the parents (I’m guilty with the first one) who try and try and try to get their babies to walk at 8 think you are rip-roaring ready for all of those're baby has to be THE ONE!  It takes about a week before you realize how easy they were when they stayed where you put them.  Even when they least you can kind of follow the path of destruction and yes, they can crawl fast, but not nearly as fast as when they figure out how to, as my Pastor once described, "purposely lift a foot, fall forward, and catch themselves over and over and over again.  Otherwise known as 'walking'".  Then they are gone.  Oh they come back on a regular basis for the cuddles and the 'ups!', but they are pretty much carving out their own path and they are on their way.  Inevitable and bittersweet.  

Silver lining = learn to walk means learn to do chores! :)


  1. I know exactly what you mean! One minute you're wishing they'd do something more than just lay there, hit a milestone. The next they won't stop and you need a rest! :)

  2. I'm also getting a little burned out on trying to think of posts!

    I don't have kids, just furry babies, so I can't relate with the learning to talk thing. But I did teach my dog to shake hands, and now she's always smacking me with her paw.

    Wishing you continued success with the A to Z challenge,

  3. Babies do grow fast; good thing to - cause us moms need all the help we can get doing those chores.
