Oh, how I long for conversations to understand his hopes and dreams, his fears, his wants...
Yesterday, there was a wonderful little moment that I am so excited to share. No, he was not able to express his innermost hopes and dreams but, he was able to be a little defiant.
Big smile here! A very happy mama! Bee was completely stubborn! How completely normal! Sweet defiance! This is an example of the conversation:
Me: " Baby are you ready to go to bed?"
Me: "you'll need to go soon" in my best sting songy voice.
Bee (emphatically): "No, I don't!"
Me: (with a little more firmness in my voice) "Yes, baby. You're going to bed in 2 minutes"
Bee about 30 seconds later as I walked by: "I not!" (in his best sing songy voice)
YES!!! Blissful words that are allowing completely "normal" behaviors and allowing him to be self-willed.
Praying for more and more moments like this!!!
|Hard to believe this cutie can be unrelenting isn't it!?!|
