Remember the scene in Father of the Bride circa 1990 version where the daughter, Annie comes home from Italy and tells George Banks that she is getting married? He immediately flashes back to when she is 6 years old and hears her news from his little girls perspective. To him she will always be his baby.
When Min man sits on his little training potty looking up at me saying, "pee pee coming," I imagine that this is the picture I will always have in my head as he grows older. When he towers over me and becomes a man, tells me he's in love or graduates school, I will think back to that little face and remember my son when he was 2 years old. And I will never forget my favorite sayings.
Here are some favorites:
1. Christmas tree= cranberry tree
2. Whenever he saw a reindeer he asked if his nose hurt- Rudolph's nose is bright red so it hurts
3. "A cow jumps a moon"= The cow jumping over the moon from "Goodnight Moon."
4. "Good job, Mom" when I back the car up or park it.
5. "I sit a me"= I sit with mom
2010 is a year of many big accomplishments.
Hopefully potty training will be complete.
Pre-school may be on the horizon.
Anniversary of adoption day.
Everyday is a new adventure. Every day I am blessed and grateful.
Oh, and I promise now that I will never sneak into my future in-laws bathroom snooping around in their medicine cabinet or go through their office and rifle through their desk and walk off with their checkbook. (such a good movie)
Happy 2010 to all.
