Toddler Has It On Lockdown
Keep up, little one.
Your brother is growing and learning at a rapid rate. Keeping up will be hard.
Can you do it?
Emotionally, it bugs you. Mentally, it’s confusing.
Your language has grown so much. Words you’ve learned and sentences you can form.
I thank your brother for that.
I thank myself and homeschooling your brother for that.
I thank my patience for that
Given your age, I don’t assume anything.
Yet you constantly surprise me.
Your looks makes me want to hide you in a closet
Fearful of losing you forever
I would never. I could never.
You are a child that needs to explore and climb and run and twirl
in order to feel alive.
You make me feel alive.
My little girl.
My little unplanned boo-boo
There are no mistakes.
Kristi Gilbert also known as The Robot Mommy started blogging after successfully getting her son to eat by talking like a robot. She then transformed into said robot and has been writing about her family’s adventures ever since. Inspired by her infant daughter, imaginative toddler son and supportive husband, she documents life as she knows it: chaotic, coffee soaked and filled with awesomeness.
