Hey everyone I decided to document the crazy highlights of parenting with a segment I will call STORIES I CAN’T MAKE UP chronicles!!! As many of you know, I have a handsome almost 2 yr old who is the biggest blessing to my husband and I. He is the cutest little boy you’ll ever meet with a lot personality. When I look at my son, I see a good mixture of his dad and I in him. He’s super adventurous and you won’t ever be bored when interacting with him. To summarize, I ALWAYS HAVE A STORY!
On Thursday, my son went to spend the night with his honey (my mom). While he was there my sister put him on the potty because he had been talking about the potty with her. I didn’t mind because we’ve been introducing him to the potty gradually since he can tells us when he done something in his diaper.
Fast forward to yesterday, we’re at one of his good friends’ birthday party and we’re having A GREAT TIME. I checked on him as he was playing and he was having fun with his little friends. I decided to grab something to drink and I’m talking to one of my friends when I here my other friend say TRISTIN Your son! Immediately I knew my son was in the bathroom! My inquisitive daring adventurous little boy had ventured to the bathroom and got into the toilet. He literally lifted up the toilet seat and put one leg in the toilet….
While we all shared laughter over this situation, I couldn’t help but think how these little moments when my son is doing yet another thing to remind me that YES he is indeed MY SON, that they are fleeting moments. In just 16 days my baby will be two years old. I remember carrying him! I remember how tiny he was when he came home from the hospital. I remember his first steps, his first words. I remember the day he recognized the color blue and the letter A. This incident help me to remember to cherish these moments because he’s growing fast. I also realized just how valuable these early years are for my husband and I and most importantly the little boy that God has blessed us the opportunity in raising. My only hope is that we won’t squander the moments to invest in our family.
Here’s a little snapshot of my world. A God fearing wife and mom trying to get it right one moment at a time, all while sharing stories I CAN’T MAKE UP!
