An Old Conversation Worth Telling

Oh my gosh, I have been looking for this for two years. TWO YEARS!

Two years ago, my son and I had this sweet conversation.

And I wrote it down specifically so I could blog about it.

Today, I am doing some Spring Cleaning (because it’s officially SPRING…squee!) Even the weather is cooperating. And it’s supposed to snow again next week. I don’t want to talk about how upset I’m going to be.

Anyway, under the filing cabinet and covered in dust I found the piece of paper I scribbled this conversation down on, and now I have to blog about it.

September 15, 2012 (My son was 3 years old at this time.)

Noah: “Oh, it looks like I have a baby in my belly because I ate so much food!”

“I’m gonna grow a baby in my belly for me to kiss and love and sleep with in my very own bed.”

Me: “Aw, that’s what Mommy did! I grew a baby in my belly for me to kiss and love and sleep with in my very own bed and it was you!”

Noah: “Yeah, and then I will eat lots of food and grow a baby in my belly and then the doctors will make a big cut in my tummy and then the baby will come out of my bottom and I will cuddle it and sleep with it in my very own bed and hold it all the day.”

Me: “That’s so sweet, Noah. How are you a little person now?”

Noah: “Because I AM a little person. Mommy, you are so funny. You know lots of little persons.”

Me: “You are my favorite little person.”

Gah, three year olds. So cute. Also, this kid has been talking about wanting a baby since he was three.

Happy weekend and Happy SPRING!

The Missing Wallet on Richmondmom

I have been a mess lately.

Not in any sort of good way.

In the I’m-sick-my-husband’s-out-of-town-I-don’t-even-have-clean-pants way. You would die if you saw my laundry pile.

And then, I lost my wallet.

Please join me at Richmondmom.com where I let you in on the behind-the-scenes of my current life and make you smile with a story of a good deed.

See you there! 

About Marriage

“When I was younger, I wanted to be married so badly. I wanted the companionship, the family, the love. I wanted lazy Sundays in bed and long walks. I wanted gazing into each other’s eyes and secret smiles and laughter. I wanted a movie scene. The problem is that movie scene portrayals of relationships are […]

Redecorating with Wall Art from Minted.com

Yesterday, the weather was gorgeous. My son and I actually got to spend some time outside and take a neighborhood walk, which was such a welcome reprieve from the cold snowy winter we’ve had. And then, today, it snowed. Again. This time, starting early in the morning and it hasn’t stopped! Stuck inside again all […]

I Can’t Do Anything Right

I can’t do anything right. No, this is not a case of low self esteem or a pity party, but simply a statement of fact according to my four year old son. I’ve been writing these sweet posts about how much I love him and how much I cherish motherhood but the truth is in […]

Life Around The Internet

Elated Exhaustion has been missing some love lately, but I’ve been busy all over the internet. For Valentine’s Day, a friend and I saw The Richmond Ballet’s production of Cinderella, and it was beautiful! I wrote about it here.  I was also incredibly honored to be featured as a guest poster on Dancing in The […]

Four and a Half

My sweet boy at 4 and 1/2.

“Mommy, can you come check the temperature? It says 8 6. Well, I know I’m right about the 8,” he poses as he wiggles and tugs for my attention. I leave my school snack making for a minute to walk with him to our thermostat, which does, in fact display an 8 and a 6. […]

Feeling Alive

After an entire week off school last week due to snow, I eagerly laid out all of my son’s clothes for school this week. An outfit for every day, show and tell, snacks, right down to socks and underwear ready to go. This week, we would get back into our routine. And Monday and Tuesday […]

It Snowed and I was on TV

january 2013 017

So I accidentally took a week off blogging (again) because it snowed. And apparently, when it snows in Richmond, VA school is cancelled. For an entire week. I can not tell you how frustrating that is. At the beginning of the week I wrote this sweet post about it on Richmondmom.com.  By the end of […]

The First Snow

“You guys, you guys, LOOK!!!” His feet stomped heavily across the upstairs hallway as he ran, interrupting the quiet calm of early morning sleeping. We stirred a bit in our sleep, more startled than awake. “IT SNOWED!!” He declared in an excited yell. We pulled back our bedroom curtain to reveal the white blanket that […]
