i got a deal here, im not sure who to be on this one...
i am a sahm with two little girls.... one little big girl and one 18mo girl. dh is overseas the last year -iraq. id ask him if i could but im thinkin the best chance of gettin some good advice is here. can you help me?
it started this way: dd (10yrold) had a bunch of mustard on her hands and i came over with a warm wet cloth diaper and took her hands and began wiping them. she said
'mom, i can do it im not a baby' and i said
'i know your not a baby i just like it'
she asked 'are you just pretending im a baby?'
i kissed her hand in reply. then she asks 'do you like babies?'
and i tell her i do and i like her too.
she tells me she would be a baby for me if i'd like her to and im just starting to tell her that i love her the way she is when she decides that she really wants to do this.
im going....(in my head) well, i could get two bottles of milk instead of one, lay her and sister out on a blankie w/ toys, mabey she needs some extra lovins...etc.
when she hits me with the diaper
i told her i would have to think about the diaper. she seems a bit attatched to the idea. i told her i will need to think about it and ive escaped to the office for a minute
and ive used about 5 typing this up....
oh, these kids....... they just keep coming up with the maximum allowable number of things that really flex my ability to expand my thinking and my heart.
