For all you parents out there, do you ever wonder if your kids feel loved? Ande had a little accident last week (I’m not going to tell you what happened because then everyone might think I’m a bad mother!). Don’t worry, he is fine, fit as a fiddle, but I can’t stop thinking about it. With all of the little bumps and bruises that are inevitable with little boys, I wonder if Ande is thinking, “Mama, why did you let me get hurt? Why didn’t you protect me?” Curtis and I shower him with hugs and kisses everyday (how could you not with those rosy cheeks?), but I wonder if I could be doing more to make sure he feels safe and happy with us. Ande has a real knack for bonking his head and just about every time I can remember, it happened because I was distracted checking my email or something.
Whether he feels loved or not, there is no doubt that his little heart is just filled to the brim with love for us! It is amazing how somebody so little could be so kind and loving. We really enjoyed ourselves this past weekend. Ande and I look forward to Saturdays when we get Curtis all to ourselves for a whole day! This Saturday was full of fun with times with his Daddy!
They started out the day with a little exercise. Ande has been working on his pull-ups. He can hang all by himself! Pretty soon, he’ll be able to do more than Curtis and Grandpa Anderson!
We spend a lot of the cold, rainy days at the mall. There is a little play place there with a slide and Carousel that Ande LOVES. Daddy decided to join in on the fun!
We finished out the day with a trip to the pool at the Y. Ande had not been swimming since last summer and it was so fun to see how he reacted to the water this time! He’s our little water bug!
Now that you all know about this commitment to buy me flowers once a month, I expect all of you to check up on him and keep him on track! =)
We hope everyone enjoyed their valentine’s day!
