And if playing clown for baby laughs isn't sweet enough, how about yesterday's morning antics? Z and I woke up to a missing boy. This never happens, the baby always gets up before the seven year old. What was he doing?
"Morning, Mama! I have a surprise for you. Since you and Zia always get up and do stuff for me, I did something for you!"
Z and I quietly busy ourselves in the morning. I never thought it was a big deal, its just easier to get stuff done with only one munchkin underfoot :) We do little projects, like putting P's castle back together or setting up his shelves or something. I love him waking up to a sweet surprise. Especially since his place in bed has been replaced and he no longer wakes up to an hour of cuddles. (He doesn't complain, but as I mentioned with his room, the kid just isn't really the complaining type...)
P had picked up the living and dining room, arranged Zia's toys in a fabulously feng shui way and then tidied up the attic too. Every time his ornery side
explodes in an enormous whirl of noise and mess gets the better of him, I must remember to conjure these images in my mind...
