Wordful Wednesday: I Need A Hug

By |

Hi friends.

I wish I could have all you wonderful readers just give me a big hug at once. I know that those of you who take the time to follow my little blog and read about all my foibles are supportive. I think you all love my kids too. At least you consistently tell me how cute they are, so thanks for that.

If you follow me, you see these little twerps growing up before your eyes.

I’m having one of those mom moments and I need a hug.

This morning, Coco’s preschool teacher came to our house to meet us. They make home visits before the kids start school, and I am thankful for this little perk. I know that “Miss Katie” won Coco over and now she’ll have a familiar face for that big first day.

I sat there watching my baby girl show her teacher some of the pictures she colored. She even drew one for her. She wrote the four letters of her name all over the place. *side note: she’s in for a ride when she figures out that she’s not gonna get away with the simplistic “Coco” her whole life. It’s gonna be a hoot when we try to get her to write “Cosette” on everything.

I could tell Coco really liked Miss Katie and enjoyed showing her her room, her books, and of course, her “Pinkalicious dress.”

Meanwhile, Chaucer was working his own little sideshow. He found things to show Miss Katie and managed to sneak about five of the cookies we had bought for her visit. He made sure that he got a good forty-seven percent of her attention. He doesn’t need all, or even a full half of someone’s attention. He works with that forty-seven percent and he makes it count.

Do you ever have those out-of-body-mind-blowing-this-is-not-my-life-reality-check moments? How did I get here? My kids are growing up. And I need a hug.

    I’m just catching up on the latest blogs- I love the pictures and am so glad Cosette likes her teacher. Chaucer sure wants to be right in there, doesn’t he? They’re both so cute and I can’t believe how big they’re getting:(

    Oh I don’t even know how I’ll do that. And Kaylie’s such a sweetie I bet that makes it extra hard. I’m trying to just hold onto what I have now and enjoy it. Although that’s kind of hard when they make me crazy. Always one extreme or the other lol.

    Just wait till your babies leave for college. I think I cried for an hour after Kaylie left. Life goes by in warp speed when kids are involved. That’s so neat Coco’s teacher visited her at home. What a neat perk. ????

    I had her in a cute outfit, and then after the teacher arrived Coco ran to her room and grabbed the dress. She had her teacher put it on for her ???? You SHOULD come over and hang out!

    It was a huge perk! I think we all feel really comfortable and pumped up for her first day now!

    Chaucer is Coco’s shadow. He’s gonna be in for it when she is gone during the week ???? And yes, they are getting too big. Maybe it’s time for another baby ????
