I can do it myself, Mom….
The words every mother is happy to hear and dreads at the same time.
Filling his cup with water
Brushing his teeth
Buckling his seat belt
It has been my job as the primary caretaker to do everything for my children. Now Monkey feels the need to be independent…sniff sniff (luckily Buggy is still VERY dependent on mom)
I know…I know…this is what I have been teaching him for the past 3 years but my heart sinks a bit more every time those words come out of his mouth.
As we were having cuddle time last night I asked him if he will always need his mommy and to my delight, he said YES!!!!
