A Few BoyWonder Gems

BoyWonder continues to delight, despite his finally entering the 3-year-old tantrum phase. He had his first 45-minute long screaming/crying fit this week, but the poor little guy had an ear infection at the time so I can’t feel too frustrated about it.

Lately he’s been telling me he wants to snuggle with me because “You’re soooo soft, Mama.” And he told me I smelled like frosting the other day. After Dolittle telling me I smell like cupcakes, I’m beginning to wonder if I just naturally reek of baked goods.

The other night we were eating dinner, and I was sitting across the table from BoyWonder. Out of the blue, he suddenly announced, “Mommy, I want to KISS you!” Then he got down out of his chair, came around the table to me, grabbed my arm, planted a big ol’ kiss on it, then returned to his chair and continued his meal. Can the sweetness get any sweeter?

It hasn’t all been sunshine and roses around here, though. I mentioned the ear infection, which followed two days of fever and a bad cough. The ear infection resulted in a HORRIBLE night of sleep one night, and a fairly rough one the next. BoyWonder slept with me while Havarti slept in the other room so that at least one of us would get some sleep.

Then, wouldn’t you know, I left for an overnight retreat this weekend with some other moms and BoyWonder slept for 13 HOURS STRAIGHT without waking up ONCE. Perhaps it’s my cupcakey smell that was keeping him awake. I leave and he sleeps like a log. I’m not sure whether I’m relieved or bitter about that.

I have the sweetest video of him laughing hysterically at a paper airplane being tossed over and over again. I’ll post if I can figure out how to get it off my phone without downloading the other 1384 photos that the kids have taken.

Anyway, just wanted to jot down these few anecdotes so I don’t forget them. Everything is adorable when a toddler does it. Even something as simple as him spilling water and then going to get a towel from the drawer to clean it up is just so stinking cute. 🙂

  1. Just last week my niece was asleep when I left her house and she woke up crying because she didn’t get to hug me goodbye. So what did I do? I turned around and drove basically 20 minutes out of my way so she could give me a hug. That’s not something you do for anyone other than cute kids.
