I was just promoted to a new level of Mommyhood on Monday. Nevermind the fact that yesterday I spit on my shirt and wiped Adaline’s face with it.
Adaline was eating snacks at her desk while I was on the sofa checking some email. She then walked up to me and without saying a word pulled my hand from the keyboard, turned it over, and spit chewed up organic pretzels into my hand. She said, “No like it.” (This was after she’d already finished quite a few), and then she requested that I feed the pretzel mush in my hand to the dog (he was happy to accommodate).
I suppose I should be glad that she didn’t just spit it on the floor. Now I’m known not only as, “Mommy, the lady that cuddles me, plays with me, and changes my diapers.” but also as, “Mommy, the lady to go to when I have a mouthful of nasty food that I don’t want to swallow.” In a few short years I’ll be, “Mommy, the lady to go to when I need to make a shadowbox for my book report tomorrow even though I knew about it two weeks ago.” I’m growing up 🙂
