This may also be known in mother circles as 'iluffjoo'. That is how it sounds isn't it, when they say it, when those three beautiful and breath-taking words fall out of their perfect heart shaped mouths.
She speaks a lot does our Mojo. Her vocab is good, her motor skills are ridiculous and her emotional development is a treat to watch, the smiles and full body wiggling when Mr M is home, the hugs when she is happy, the sad face when she is being naughty and so on, the small things that make her Mojo. She has been making the 'mmmmwah' noise for kisses for about 4 months now, walking since she was 11 months and can sing many, many incoherent songs.
She hasn't overcome anything. No disorders of any kind, no severe illness and I haven't dropped her once - not even once! I am just proud. I think all parents should be. You don't have to be the best in the world and always win, equally you don't have to overcome extream difficulty to be special, you really don't, and the thing that makes you special is you. (Say that bit out loud, I did, just to check how it sounds). It sounded cheese filled. But if you're seriously going to tell me you don't wish to instil in your children that, no matter what, they are special then get the fark off my blog, really. This isn't the place for you.
So, I was walking by the girls room, just doing the chores of motherhood - moving one pile of crap to another area - Eldest jumped out from behind the door 'LOVE YOU 70 50 THOUSAND' - I like it, that is a lot to be loved... I am not sure how my pasty doughy self can accommodate that much love. So I bark back in my usual fashion 'LOVE YOU TOO'... then it happened.
Mojo makes a length run across the room and says 'c'meer'. So I do, I drop my pile of crap and go over. That is when it happened. She looked my right in the eye and screamed in my face ' ILUFFJOO' followed by a manic cackle, being gifted with a plastic burger bun and a finger up my nose.
I am sure I'm not the only one to fall in to a puddle of mess after the first 'I Love You'. Right? You did too?
In case you're not sure how cheeky she now looks here, this one is for free:
