“Mommy! Mommy? Mommy?!” came the calls from the next room.
His tone sounds so defeated, so pained as Marcel delivers this message to my weary and mildly attentive self standing next to his bed; “Mommy I just feel so lonely.”
Marcel, you have twenty-five stuffed animals right here. Here’s Rudolph, Lamby, Chippy and…”
“Oh Mommy. You just don’t understand. It’s just that none of my stuffed animals are able to meet my needs anymore.”
“You know Mommy you really are so blessed. I mean you have seriously amazing kids.”
While pointing to his picture of a crocodile, a poodle, a giant pigeon, and a dinosaur all on leashes “being walked across a bridge by a very strong mommy,” he paused, looked up and said; “Huh. It seems like she is being pulled in so many directions.”
In the car tonight on the way to a friend’s house Marcel commands; “Raise your hand if you are going to get married soon, or if you have the best almost dad ever!”
Any glorious one liners to share? They do keep my head above water most days I have to say. The kid sure can craft a line.
