This is a short post I wrote March of this last year. Thought I would share it now:
The whining, the real tears, the uncontrollable laughter then screaming. And then today my son bite me. Yes he just took a giant bite out of my second toe. To be fair, it is one with a shiny toe ring on it but even then.
As I tried to calm my sore toe and clean up dinner, I saw the bright yellow daffodils sitting in the orange vase on the counter.
Hours earlier Z bound in beaming with a bright yellow bundle clutched in his little hands. My heart soared.
As I cleaned the counters I sighed and remembered just how much I love him and how in one day there are such extremes and adventures.
Such is the toddler life.
