Prince Charming’s Parents

December 31st, 2007

I’d like to introduce you to Charming’s parents…

They came to visit for Christmas and we had such a wonderful time!

I’m so glad they came and I missed them the moment they left.

They left for the airport last Friday morning, and that whole day I kept seeing things that reminded me of them and made me so sad.

But I tried to just suck it in and adjust to being alone again.

I was doing pretty well, until the Bubbers king caught me by surprise…..

You see, Charming’s Mom taught little Bubbers how to do “Patty Cake”. I didn’t even know that was possible for an 8-month-old to learn!

But sure enough, after a few days of watching her, Bubbers started pulling his little fists together to “pat” and then “rolling” his fists, too. We couldn’t believe it!!

Every time he did it we busted up with smiles and laughs and pride.

And wouldn’t you know, I was changing the Little Man’s diaper a couple hours after they left for the airport and feeling mighty sad when he looked up at me and out of nowhere started “rolling” his fists.

My lonely heart just ached and I smiled, “Oh, Bubbers!”

But Grandma wasn’t there to see it anymore and that just tore me up.

So I laid my head down on the floor next to him and had a good cry for the both of us (since Bubbers was busy babbling and eating his socks).

The cry made me feel better. And I realized it was worth the sadness after they left to have the joy of when they were there.

It sounds like you guys all had a wonderful Christmas! And I think one of the cutest things in the world is the sight of two pudgy little baby hands learning to clap! Do us a favor and see if you can get it on camera, then post it so we can all see him! :) Has he started “dancing” (waving or swaying or bouncing) to music yet? He sounds like he likes rhythm. Be sure to tell his Grandma (if you haven’t already) what an impression she made on him! ;)

Aw, how cute! I know its hard to be all alone again after spending time with family. Elora loved doing the rolling thing with her arms too, though she didn’t get into the clapping till she was one or so.

I’d love to see patty-cake pictures!!! :)

Wow… I can tell that these are your hubby’s parents… he looks a lot like both of them, mainly his mom!

Thanks everyone! Oh, how I wish I could get pictures of Bubbers doing patty cake for y’all… Problem is, I can’t get him to do it again for me!! I tried every day after that, but it was no use. He just stared at me without so much as a flicker of movement from his hands. :( Apparently, Grandma has a monopoly on it. I’m so sad! Sniff, sniff.
