You will bring sunshine into someone’s life this week.
Your resolve to try something new each day attracts people to you.
How is it that every month seems like The Biggest Month Ever? Mommy is surprised every time she sits down to write one of these notes to you — you seem to change things up on a regular basis.
This month has been a challenging one for your Mommy and Daddy, full of poop and puke and tantrums. But it’s also been full of songs and words and and a visit with Grammy, so it almost balances out.
You will be showered with good luck.
You have had a good start. Work harder!
You’re finally to that age where, when someone asks, “How old is he?” the answer is usually, “Almost two,” or, “He’ll be two in September.” Really, “one-and-three-quarters” doesn’t really roll off the tongue, and neither does “twenty-one months” — but that’s how old you are. Not quite two years old yet, no matter how tall or talkative you are.
You will show what you are capable of.
Mothers Day Weekend as a whole was interesting and busy in ways that I may get into later. Mothers Day itself was a pleasant and relatively relaxing day, despite us still doing the typical things like laundry and shopping.
As with all Sundays, I woke with Connor and let Aaron sleep. He gets up with Connor three days a week, Connor goes to daycare two days a week, and I rock the weekend mornings. It’s only fair. Plus, it gives me time to hang out with my boy — which I especially appreciate when he’s not being a cranky toddler.
On Mothers Day, he decided to be quite affable.
Mommy’s a little late with this month’s update, and there’s no good reason apart from just being busy. And tired. During the weekend, Mommy’s been napping when you nap; during the week, Mommy will put you to bed and then play on her phone for an hour before she realizes what she’s doing, then will realize that she’s super tired and just go to bed. Mommy’s trying to be better about getting things done, and better about being good to herself and getting enough rest. There’s a balance there.
But enough about Mommy. Let’s talk about you!
