I’m Not Awesome

It’s been a long week. I’m pretty sure that any week following a vacation would feel long, but there has been a lot going on this week. We were on the go nearly every day this week, much to the dismay of my wannabe hermit 9-year-old (although he definitely had his share of fun), and even when we were at home, downtime hasn’t happened much. As such, today’s post is going to be short and definitely sweet.

One day last week, Baby Girl did something that prompted her dad to heap praise upon her. I can’t for the life of me remember what it was, but her reaction certainly stood out.

My husband informed her that she could be — and was — both.

(By the way — Baby Girl was looking over my shoulder while I did today’s doodle. She had one request: for me to draw her pooping. I declined. I will, however, be continuing the Bulba Chronicles next week. Yes, there has been enough talk lately to deserve more doodles and to be upgraded to “Chronicles.”)

Have a good weekend!

Things Kids Say Thursday: New Ears

Sometimes kids can say the sweetest things.

As some of y’all already know, I have hearing loss in both ears. I was born with nerve damage, so I’ve dealt with that all my life. I can hear, but I can’t hear that great and sometimes I miss a lot of stuff, especially if there’s background noise.

Yesterday, we were waiting on a phone call from Little Man’s doctor when Baby Girl told me that my cell was ringing. I didn’t hear it at all. I told her later that I appreciated her telling me it was ringing since I can’t hear well.

“Mommy’s ears don’t work very well, so I need your help hearing things sometimes,” I told her.

“Your ears not work?” she asked.

“Not very good,” I answered.

“Poor Mommy,” Baby Girl said, looking sad. And then she said this:

Y’all, I about melted. (And that’s me melting, in case you couldn’t tell.) Had we been at Walmart or somewhere else with all the toys when she said that, she’d have gotten everything. Sometimes it really amazes me at the sweet, thoughtful stuff she can come up with. (Her brother is the same way — he’ll even turn subtitles on my movies for me without asking.)

What’s one of the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard your kid say?
