I’m not a princess, I’m a waitress.
One of my favorite things about Vera is that she is very complimentary of others, and always remembers to thank us for things. For example, she compliments us on dinners she thinks are delicious, or says “Thank you for cooking this dinner, Mom.” She also makes a special point to always say good morning. Even if she forgets during our first encounter and remembers later, she will say, “Good morning Mom, I forgot to tell you earlier.”
She’s also been super-sweet lately about telling us she loves us and baby Wesley. We are lucky parents.
- Nanna: you know what we're going to do today, Vera? We are going to go to the store to get some eggs and a bag for Wesley and your socks.
- Vera: hahahahaha. Wesley's whole body and my socks? That's silly!
- Nanna: what? Oh no! I mean Wesley's socks and your socks.
I wasn’t prepared for the tear-fest that ensued just now as we pulled up to school to drop Vera off. After a week of excitement and a weekend at home with both parents, her Nanna, and baby Wesley, the separation was too much to bear. Poor baby. At least it’s a short day.
(with help from Nanna), I got myself, Vera, and baby Wesley clean, fed, changed, and ready for his first Dr’s appt. Bonus: we are going to be on time!
