(I wrote this post back in April. He still wants to snuggle and tells me that he loves me, but he did stop meowing and licking my hands.)
“Mommy, I love you forever. I want to marry you!”
“Huggy? Snuggles? Mommy, I am your little kitten!”
“Mommy, can you call me Kuzya?”
“I love you, Mommy! Forever!”
“Mommy, I want to snuggle up with you!”
He is just a little over four and a half. I know that I have half a year, at most, and then all this will end. And it makes me so, so sad. My little kitten is growing up 😦
If “falling asleep while snuggling with your children” was a superpower, I would have my own comic series by now.
If “staying up until 3 in the morning after waking up at midnight in your child’s bed” was a skill, people would come from all over the world to study at my feet.
If “what the hell was I thinking????” ever needs a poster child, I am available later this morning for a photo shoot.

Stopped at Pick’n’Save on my way home, ostensibly to pick up a foil pan to cook the turkey in, some Diet Coke, a jug of milk, and bananas. Walked out an hour later, with five bags of stuff. Spent $95, “saved” $35. I sense a theme…
I’ve been feeling anxious and out of sorts these last few days, as if waiting for the other shoe to drop. I am not sure why this is happening; there is nothing I can do to make it go away; I just have to wait it out and hope the wait won’t be too long. It sucks.
My friend-in-the-computer Violet shared this article today: Depression Is NOT a Mental Illness, and it is so, so true….
While I was at the library getting my greedy paws on “Saga: vol. 2”, YoungestOne (totally of his own free will) was practicing writing with UncleMel.
Here are the sentences he wrote:
Gee. I wonder if he hears those a lot 😛
