I should have been excited.
Lucy only has about a dozen words. Four or five of them are new as of this week. So many things get easier when your toddler can use words. You know what they want. Water? Sleep? Outside? Up?
I don’t know what I thought her first two word thought would be. Love mama? More eat? Dog out?
She was sitting in my lap. It was nearing her bedtime and I was trying to squeeze a few more minutes of chatter with an old friend in to my evening. She was scooping her hands in and out of my tanktop. I knew what she was after but she was still happy. I kept talking.
She had her eyebrows squinched together like she does when something does not meet her approval.
Sigh. I hear you, little lady. 37 years old and two pregnancies – this is as up as they get, girl.
