I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

The Ever Observant Toddler

We were so excited for June Bug to start talking, which he was really slow to do. We had some baby signs around 14mos and a few words at 15mos. Somewhere around 21months  he exploded with such gems that include:

Don't like it, mama.
Don't want it, mama.
That's mine, mama.

As you can imagine the novelty is slowing wearing off and hit rock bottom today. He sauntered into our room and pointed to 2 sets of dumbbells that we store in one of the cat tree cubbies and loudly declared "that's kitties' toys mama."

Is June Bug is trying to tell me the cats use them more than I do? And here I was feeling pretty good about my postpartum body. Nothing like a toddler to put you in your place. ::sigh::

Maybe I should have hiked more before leaving L.A. Oh well, at least the Lady-Bug-Leftovers are hidden by Lady Bug herself in this photo.
