I officially have no more newborns in the house. Boy Blue is almost seven months old. I had a dream the other night that he just got up and started walking around the house. Not ready for that! It means lots of tumbles some of which will be no doubt head first.
Before my first baby, I never knew a baby could make such spectacular falls with absolutely no training. Every baby is born a natural for a life in the circus. We, as parents, must teach them to give up these foolish acrobatic stunts. So that we can walk around without our hearts in our throats.
I know Boy Blue will cry when I try to protect him from his own fearlessness. He will hate that I hold him back from exploring his new world at a breakneck speed. However, he will just have to get over it. Because, this Mama knows best.
Don’t you just hate the feeling you get in your tummy when you see your toddler falling and you know you just can’t get there in time to break the fall? It is the worst.
It has happened so many times between all my babies that I should be used to it by now. I am not. Afterwards, I give lots of Mama kisses that have magic healing powers. Sweet Bear and Petite Clown will still coming crying after getting a boo boo to get the magic Mama kiss. As soon as I kiss the boo boo they run off as if nothing happened.
Mama kisses are powerful stuff, don’t ya know?
