Mommy and Me

Easter Sunday.  A day we celebrate the rising of Jesus Christ from his tomb, and we thank him for his sacrifice by eating too much with our family, and hunting eggs.  We did all of that.
H is an awesome little boy, but he is very much a three year old right now.  I love him all the time, but there are entire days where I don’t like him very much.  He can be argumentative, demanding, entitled, and prone to temper tantrums.  What am I doing about it?  I’m trying to take a walk with him, just him, as many days as I can.  We usually walk about a mile through our neighborhood, holding hands and talking about birds or squirrels or plants.  He likes to greet the mailboxes, wave at the vehicles going by, splash in any existing puddles, and make up little scenarios.  It can be a lot of fun, and gives him some personal Mommy time.  So we did that before bed, after Easter dinner with our extended family.
The babies take up so much of my time, energy, and patience that there is little left over for this amazing little boy that I was blessed with. It’s the one thing about having more kids that tweaks my heart, not having the time for my big boy. So I am going to continue to try and take him out most evenings, for as long as he wants to walk with his Momma. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll run together, him laughing at how slow I am, me being so proud to be his Momma.
Happy running, y’all.
