Murphy the Jealous Toddler...
Tue Aug 20, 2013 12:59

(Murphy is from Junie & Winston)
Somehow, this happened ...maybe it's because
my boys are 9 & 17 ...and I'm not having anymore
children ...but Murphy has taken a liking to ....
(this is really embarrassing)....being held like
a toddler ....he comes up to me and does
the whole reach up my legs thing until I
pick him up and tote him around on my hip! He
will even turn and reach out for someone if
they come up and say, "Murphy wanna come
to me?" and if he doesn't want to go to that
person.....he just turns his
body in to the person holding him and puts his
head on their shoulder.
I suppose I welcomed & encouraged the behavior
because my last child wasn't very cuddly and
perhaps... I felt a little jipped.
Soooo, this has never
posed a problem UNTIL I had to watch my
niece for a couple of days!!! OHHH LORRRD!! It's
been like having twins!
I thank Lisa every day for this endless bundle
of love that she brought into our lives <3
endless bundle of love that won't *EVER* have
to go off to college one day!! :)
