Precious Moments


Sometimes I have the funniest conversations ever with Aiden.

Like last night, for instance.

I left a pair of socks on the floor yesterday morning (which is totally unlike me) and when we got home yesterday evening, this was the conversation that ensued.
Aiden: Seriously, mommy? Who left these socks on the floor?
Me: Uh, you see what had happened was...

And once when he thought it would be a good idea to bring a sweater outside with him --
Aiden: I need to bring my sweater because I'm gon' be cold.
Me:(with a raised eyebrow) Gon'?
Aiden: Going to.
Me: Stretch that sentence out.
Aiden: I need to bring my sweater because I'm GOING TO be cold.
Me: (smiles at him and gives him a thumbs up).
(Yes, I'm that anal.)

And once when he just finished completing a 54-piece floor puzzle all by himself --
Me: Wow, Aiden! You did that puzzle all by yourself.
Aiden: Yeah, I'm really great at puzzles.
Me: (Under my breath) Guess we don't have to work on building up your confidence.

And once just because --
Aiden: Mommy, I super love you.
Me: I super love you too A.

And all of a sudden I realized that he went from this:


[one day old]

To this:


[silly face. four-years-old]

[little man on campus. four-years-old.]
He's a real person. With his own personality. And he's... amazing.

Man, time flies...

  5. Yup, time flies indeed and I found myself flipping through those old albums of when my boys were small.. they were so cute and constantly looking for Mama but now that they are 13, I am hardly 'needed' but the reward comes when every now and then they hug me and say " Mama, you are the best, I am so lucky" that's when I know, I was never forgotten, just that they grew up!

  6. Aiden is growing up so fast, isn't he? He's such a precocious young man, it's hard to keep up with him.
