Nate and I were getting ready to go out on a date, thanks to our friends to offered to babysit for us. We have been trying to "date" more regularly now because, well, it's good for us. When you have little kids, it's really hard to find time for yourself let alone with your spouse. It feels good to take time out to shave, dress up and apply makeup or perfume once in a while.
I was sitting on the edge of our bed putting my earrings on. I had just finished most of my hair, makeup and put on some new scented moisturizer. I was feeling pretty decent about the outfit I had picked out.
Lucian was standing in the doorway staring at me. Sometimes he stares off into space like we all do, but this time he was watching me intently.
I looked over at him after a little while and he said to me,
"Mommy, I'm staring at your because you look so beautiful! And you smell so gooooood!"
Doesn't that just make you melt? I told him thank you very much and that his compliment made me feel so good.
He truly is the little boy of my dreams.
Then, Keagan barged into the room and proceeded to claw at my top and demanded to be nursed. That child has not met any cleavage he didn't like! Ah well, he won't always be a boobie boy — someday he'll wean and I'll miss it or he'll chase other girls around! I suppose I'm doing them a favor? ;)
I love to be needed and I love to be loved.
A few other little things of note from Lucian are some words he's made up that I think are just too cute.
(1) He calls hand sanitizer "hanitizer." Makes sense to me!
(2) I asked Lucian to get a pizza out of the upright freezer out back (yes, we keep our freezer, washing machine and dryer outside of the home here in the desert where those things just heat up the house unnecessarily!)
When he came back in, he said,
"Mommy, I brought the pizza in from the freezerator."
Freezerator — get it? Freezer that looks like a refrigerator = Freezerator.
Yep, that's my Lucian!
