My Baby

He's always going to be called Baby. No matter what. He's my little snuggle-wuggle-monkey-skunkey-squishy-bottomed baby boy.
He's four. And that's still a tiny baby. Right? Yes. Don't be judging me because I can't let go of my little tiny boy (who's a head taller than all his friends and could tackle a first grader if he wanted to). And don't be judging my cake making abilities either! Oh, wait....Clay baked the cake, from a box. Like you all don't love him enough already because he tries to put away laundry! Please, people you're killin' me here the man can barley get his head through the door and he's struttin' around like a rooster on steroids! All because YOU READERS THINK HE'S CUTE AND WONDERFUL FOR NOT PUTTING THE LAUNDRY AWAY CORRECTLY!!!!

sigh**eyeroll**

Anyway, my baby is now four. And I don't like it one bit. These darn kids grow up to stinkin' fast. This last one is such a Momma's boy that I'll do just about anything for him. And he knows it. When he wakes up in the morning the first thing he wants to do is crawl up in bed with me and say, "I sweep wif you Mom. Coot over Mom, I sweep wif you. You snuggle me Mom." And of course I never say no, because who wouldn't want a little toasty, squishy-bottomed monkey to snuggle with every morning?
It took him nearly four years to tell me he was 'free years old'. But instantly, when he turned four, he knew, "I'm FOUR!!"
Little Stinky Monkey Head!

My "baby" turns four in December and I'm thinking about not celebrating and then maybe it won't happen. It is so hard to watch them grow up so fast. I cried like a baby myself when I took him to his first day of preschool. I feel your pain.

Awwwwwwww....

I have a 12-year-old Sweety-Petey who is a tough, smart jock and a total Momma's boy. Ahhhhh.

He will still announce, "Cuddle me, Mom!" I oblige.

This could go well into the college years if I'm lucky.

LOL! Love this post! I have a 10 year old girl, and we BOTH can't wait until her dad is out of town and she gets to sleep with me! We're pathetic, I know.... but there is just something about snuggling down with your child. Happy birthday squishy-bottomed boy!

I can't believe Deet-da-bye is FOUR!

I also have one of those 4 year old babies too. So far the only difference is my baby wants me to get up and come sweep with her and she always says she needs to hug me cause she's cold. I totally agree that they will always be the baby no matter how big they get!

My little squishy monkey-butt is now 25 years old with a squishy monkey-butt of her own, but when mommie comes to visit... she crawls up in my lap and snuggles. I miss my little squishy monkey butt but I love the grownup one too.

Enjoy them while they are little.

My baby is 10. He still wants cuddles in bed. I still love it.

I think it's b/c Clay is an architect, they know how to get in touch with their feminine side. ;)

Mine just turned 8. He's still my baby. He's absolutely fine with it, as long as none of his friends are around.
Happy Birthday Monkey Boy!
And you are absolutely right, Clay is looking more and more golden every single post.
