The non working mom life – part 2

So last time I wrote about how household drudgery is getting me down. And then today morning something small yet wonderful happened which I thought I must add.

I think my ‘nesting’ instinct has set in early this time, and I am cleaning out the closets this weekend. I know its too early, but I am excited to have things ready for the new one. Anyway, I was busy so I called over to the hubby and said ‘Give the babe his celery and salad for lunch, I will be out in a few’.

I heard the┬áhubby, who has been so very helpful this weekend, doing something in the kitchen and then calling the babe for his lunch. And then I hear the babe say ‘ No not brocolli. Mommy said celery. You are to give me celery for lunch’.

Now the babe loved broccoli (he calls them trees and being a pretend elephant, its his natural diet). But just the fact that he was correcting his dad – that he believes what I say for him, and takes that to be good for him was strangely flattering. And warmed my heart.

Just a small story.
