"No Wuu You, Mama"

Do you ever feel like a bad parent?  I do sometimes.  I'm not just saying that because my Monkey told me "No love you mama" tonight.  I say it because I don't always make the best choices, and sometimes I have a short fuse.
He picks his own stylish outfits.. those aren't what make me feel like a bad mama either! 

So why do I think I'm a bad mama tonight?  Well, okay, as a whole I don't think that, even tonight.  I know he told me "no wuu you mama" because he did not want to leave a friend's house.  I whispered in his ear "I love you", and he thought that was the cue that it was bed time.  That's where I kick myself.... he thinks "I Love you" means bed time.  I'm sure I tell my boys all the time that I love them, but I guess he's learned  mostly to associate it with "Good night."...

So there it is, my kids need to hear more "I love you"s when it's not bed time.

  2. Turtle-Love is only 3 months old, but sometimes when we get ready to go out and I put him in his car seat, he gets soooo mad at me! I try to give him his Binx and he starts doing his "I'm super mad!" baby babble and everytime I swear it sounds like "I hate you!" adn this isn't just in my head, other people have heard it too =/
