Little Man’s in his room and I have no idea what he’s doing, but I know he wants help with something.
When I get to his room, I see he’s removed Cooper’s (one of his teddy bears) t-shirt and is holding one of his own diapers. I grab one of the size 1 disposable diapers we have lying around from when his little brother was first born and help him put it on Cooper. When I finish, he grabs one of Littlest One’s onesies and wants me to put that on him, too, so I do.
Once Cooper’s all diapered and dressed, LM runs over to his sound machine and night light, turns them on, and asks me to turn off the light. Apparently it’s time for Cooper to take a nap.
Everyday with LM is a fun surprise. Some better than others. Like Forrest Gump said so well: “My momma always said, ‘Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.'”. A toddler’s like a box of chocolates, too.
