A boy and his first love




Static Cling!

That's it Static Cling!

Static cling is the tendency for light objects (or thick 1 yr olds) to stick (cling) to other objects (such as a Mommy).  It is common in clothing (and 1 yr olds) but occurs with other items (such as 1 yr olds) and has the tendency to be attracted to, and stick to a Mommy.

We seem to have this in our house.
Mommy and C4

While this is such a great thing, it is also a HUGE pain in the ass.
There is nothing sweeter than a boy and his first love.  The one that breast feeds him and baths him and put the cloth diapers on him.

His Mommy

But oh my, don't let something like 2 inches come between them, cause you would think that we are pulling his finger nails off, or tweezing his 1 yr old nose hairs.  If you have ever seen the movie Jurassic Park and remember the insanely loud sound that the Velociraptor made, than you know about a sound that comes from his body when his Mommy leaves him to go such places as

the bathroom (same house)
the kitchen (same house)
downstairs (same house)

Ok, basically anywhere in OUR SAME F-ING HOUSE, but somewhere different than where he is.

After 3 children I do understand that SEPERATION ANXIETY is something that kids go through and this 1 yr old has got it and he's got it bad.

So bad that I am depating having a GPS attached to T's body and attach the monitor to C4's wrist, so he knows that Mommy is near.

See this?  This is too far apart.  You can't see it, but there is actually an invisable band between them that keeps them connected.

Now, the bad part about all of this is that at night or on the weekends when I am home, I like to try and give T some breathing room.  I consider myself the Fabric Softener between the two, but as soon as I try to get C4 and hold him or try to get him to sleep.....

(hear that?)  Oh shit the Velociraptor got out, the wild animal and the ear piercing sound is shattering our windows.  The GPS alarm is going off, get C4 back to T........he is actually in the same room but just
not attached to her hip. 

Now I love me some daddy time and I have to admit my little C4 loves to say "DA-DA" and now he seems to be the only one greeting me at the door when I get home


Something about his Mommy just makes him always gotta be by her side
A boy and his first love

That's too sweet! He will go through his daddy stage before too long and will be letting out that Velociraptor yell every time you leave.

When Waylon is with me all he talks about is daddy and practices saying daddy in a million different excited voices, but only yesterday did he call me by mommy...just yesterday! He is about 20 months old!!!

Such cute pictures!

It is the sweetest thing! Little boys just LOVE their mamas! Daddy is the fun one around here...the one they can wrestle with, play video games with, etc.
I am the one they run to when they need a hug or a kiss on the boo-boo!

I love the GPS idea...could use it on my daughter's babydoll, my son's Nintendo DS, or maybe even my sanity? LOL

It's because SHE is so lovely!

My boys are over me, but wouldn't you know it, Baby Girl has the same velcro problem? Good luck on gettin' between the two. ;)

Awwwwww!!! He can't help it! I mean, look at her! Wouldn't you want to be attached to her hip too?? LOL! It will change too quickly though so you should both enjoy it while you can!

Great post! I have 3 and all 3 were attached at the hip and the breast. There's just something about that dependence in the younger years that helps them grow up into very confident and independent people. My mom always used to say, ‘This too shall pass’, and it does, and it does SO quickly. C4 is such a cutie, enjoy him and his loud velociraptor cries for mama, soon they'll be a thing of the past.
