Yesterday Debra's boyfriend (better known as Bub) and I were having a conversation. Yes I said conversation (he does that now). At first I couldn't understand what he was saying to me but then I stopped thinking the million thoughts that were running through my head and I listened to him, really listened and I realized that he was having an actual conversation with me. My first thought was "I have to record this." that thought quickly dissipated because I realized that if I grabbed the video camera he would undoubtedly stop talking so I just sat there talking to my son and this is how the conversation went.
Bub: DiDa at?
Me: Dada's at work.
Bub: (Looking at the front door) Dida bye bye?
Me: Yep dada's bye bye.
Bub: Tissy bye bye?
Me: No silly sissy's right there.
Bub: (Laughing as if he knew he was being silly) Tissy pay!
Me: Yes sissy's playing.
Bub: (Lifting up his t-shirt) Bellbee!
Me: Yes that's your belly.
Bub: (Smiling that gorgeous smile that always melts my heart) My bellbee!
Me: Yes Bub that's your belly. I love you!
Bub: I ob you!
That single conversation made all of the things I had to do, all of the stress that I was under, all of the worry and wondering melt away until it was just me and Bub and our silly conversation about Dida and bellbees. I can't even begin to explain to you how amazed I am with my son every single day... he inspires me, he challenges me, and above all he makes me want to be the best mom I can be because I know that he deserves the moon and stars and I would gladly spend the rest of my life trying to figure out how to give him both!
