It’s always so interesting to see how my 3-year-old views the world. We like to sit and chat during lunch to talk about…well, whatever. Lunchtime is basically the only time where it would be just him and I alone. I take full advantage of the alone time together and make sure all electronics are shut off (he would leave the tablet on 24/7 if he could!) and we can enjoy some quiet time.
Lots of times he asks for Daddy. You’d be surprised by how many times it’s as if he’s surprised that Daddy isn’t home.
“Is Daddy going to eat with us?” “Mommy, don’t forget about Daddy – he likes cheese tacos (quesadillas) too!”
But other times it’s just him and I, and I get to chat with him about all kinds of things. Everything from what was his favorite part of the day, to which dinosaur is his favorite at the time and – my personal favorite – how much he loves everyone in the family.
“You are all my family and I love you every one!” (Sounding very It’s a Wonderful Life –cheery.)
He even gets all gushy about our dog.
“No Mommy, don’t put Ty in a time out (in the crate). Cuz I love him. He’ll be a good boy now.”
Gosh I love that kid – and my heart swells every time I think of him and his sensitive little heart*.
*Note to the girl that breaks it: You do not want to meet Mama Bear. Just sayin’.
As a full-time working mom, I know that every time I get to eat lunch with my boy is a privilege. And I’m so grateful to learn more about him and the way he sees things during our little chats. I’m just hoping he’ll continue to want to share with mom in the years to come.
Almost as important as the time spent with our kids, are the foods we put in their bodies. I used to be more lax about the things I’d feed him for lunch ( a chicken nugget Happy Meal, anyone?), but not anymore. Feeding him healthy, nutritious foods are so important to me now, and I get super-picky about what he can and can not eat.
