So happy to spend time painting with mami!
I mentioned in my last post that I had not seen much of mami in the past two weeks. She had been extra busy and daddy had to take over for a bit. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE daddy, but I missed mami!
She wasn't around in the evenings for dinner, to give me a bath or read to me. When she was around, she was rushing me along and very tense. I don't know what I did, but my feelings were hurt and I clung to daddy instead. Mami was sad when I wouldn't cuddle with her, but I think she that made her realise how I was feeling, and quickly changed to make sure I wasn't sad anymore.
This week mami was back! Oh how I missed her and her funny faces! It felt like the good old days - just us, going to the park, reading, dancing and eating yummy lunches. And typical mami, she had a surprise for me. Today, on our mami and me Fridays, she brought out the paints!
Leaving my mark in the kitchen
Mami just looked at me wide eyed, I stared back thinking "did you really expect me not to make a mess?" but then she laughed and kissed the small spot on my forehead that did not have paint.
She let me go wild and when she turned to get the camera, I decided I would add a little colour to the kitchen floor!
Black and white is so boring - yellow and red brightens it up!
Mami then reminded me that we were making a special card for daddy's day on Sunday so I did eventually paint on the paper.
They are abstract pieces. I hope daddy understands them.
To daddy made with lots of love, Little M
I know that a lot of mamas are very busy, but remember that us little one's love you very very much, and despite our moods, we miss and need you lots! It was nice to have mami's full attention and not have to share my time with the computer or twitter.
Mami read an article in the New York Times about the risks of parenting while plugged in and it got her thinking about how she spends her days with me.
So mamas, why not turn off the TV, shut down the computer and take a break from twitter and plan an extra special activity with your little one? And please come by and let me know what you have in mind!
P.S. Because I did make a big mess, I thought I would submit this to the Messy Play Challenge by Huggies Wipes
