I was just sitting on the floor today, enjoying my one on one time with Avery during Paxton’s morning nap. Of all my children, I feel as if I have “missed” her the most. She came into this world just 17 1/2 months after her brother, Tylan, and when she was only 15 months old, we found out we were pregnant with Paxton. Shortly after that, I got put on bed rest for the remainder of the pregnancy, and now she has a newborn brother to contend with!!! Poor thing! Good thing she has so many siblings to distract her! I definitely have some guilt about her not getting the same mommy time as the others.
Next year, Tylan will be attending school 5 days a week, as opposed to just going Friday’s like he does now. <Sniff sniff> I am not sure I am ready for that! 😦 I am just not good at sharing my children with the school system, who gets them more of their awake hours than I do! At least they are attending a school near and dear to my heart, one that I know will teach my children from God’s word, and back up what we are already teaching at home. Having him in school every morning next year, will allow me to really commit to some quality time with Avery, during Paxton’s morning nap.
So today, while Ty was at school, Avery requested we do puzzles. I love to do puzzles with her, as opposed to the other option, which entails her dumping each and every puzzle we have out in the playroom and not putting them back together again! She gets in BIG TROUBLE for that!
We were doing an ABC puzzle together and I was naming each letter as she placed it on the board. We got to the letter U…..I say: “U”.
She looks up in awe and amazement! “MEEEE?”
“No Avery, U.”
“No sweetie, the letter U.”
“Oh. Me.” She is clearly not as impressed this time, why does mommy keep repeating herself?
“No Avery, this is the LETTER U. Say the letter U.”
“OH! You, momma?” (points to me)
I am laughing too hard at this point to correct her again. Man, I love that kid! Two is one of my favorite ages!!!!! 🙂
Wishing U a great day…… 🙂
