The boys have closed their bedroom door and I can hear war-like sounds coming from behind the walls. I sent Baby M in to clean up his toys and his little brother followed him. No part of me thinks that they’re cleaning in there…
I suppose I don’t have a problem with the boys
making a big mess of their room today since our new storage baskets for their toys are supposed to be delivered this afternoon and I’ll want to reorganize everything anyway. However, once I get this room in proper order it’s really going to tweak my OCD for them to constantly be disrupting it.
That’s when I will just have to remind myself to..you guessed it, let them be little. They are only little boys once and it won’t be long until rules and structure consume their every day lives.
Which reminds me! I noticed something the other day that made me really upset. My four year old’s creativity is really blooming lately, he’s been coming up with games and making up words (just silly little things to show the size of his imagination). I was trying to explain that to someone one day and in talking to them about it I made the attempt to make up a word of my own. No such luck. Somewhere between four and nearly twenty four my imagination ran off on me but I’m not the only one. I’ve challenged people to try and make up words and so far the only one capable is the toddler.
Anyhow, the boys have been playing really well together lately despite the occasional outburst from Baby M when he wants to do a big kid thing and we tell him to include Baby J. I imagine it’s just preparation for the rest of their lives because he’ll always be the big brother that the others want to tag along with.
Just the other day I left the room for a moment (not something I do often when I’m the only one home with the boys but sometimes a lady has a pee!). When I came back out to the living room Baby A was crying in his Rock N’ Play and Baby M was serenading him.
I love youuuuuu.
I love, love, love, love youuuuu.
I will never leave you, I love youuuuuu.
Then, when being rocked and sang to was only calming him a little bit, Baby J walked over and handed his big brother a binky for the baby. It was the most adorable thing I have ever seen. Super thankful that I caught the whole thing on video because this will be something I’ll play for them again and again when they get older. ♥
