I Love Your Forever I Like You for Always As Long As I'm Living

"So...can I ask you a question?" B inquired about a month ago.
"Of course."
"When are we going to stop calling them babies? They're two now, don't most people stop by now?"
"Never," I responded.

Baby. Babies. Bambinos. Baby references that period of time that is all too short in a person's life. Babies are those cute, cuddly, sweet-smelling, tiny humans that you become responsible for instantaneously. They know you better than anyone else can because they grew inside you. You know them like no one else can because you grew them inside you. Although the baby stage is short, I will forever have babies.
To have a baby (or in my case babies) means that you will lay down your life to protect them. It means that every decision you make is for the good of your children and you no longer make a decision because it's what you want to do or because you think it's best for you. They, quite literally, become your whole life. They are my biggest source of joy and I don't see that changing any time soon.

I dread the day when I have to let them grow and flourish on their own. I can only hope that by that time we've taught them to make good decisions, make responsible choices and to love. I know the best thing I can do for them is to learn to let go but that doesn't mean that I will stop making decisions because it's best for them or they will quit being my reason for living.

And because of that, my babies they'll be.

Plus, nothing tickles me more than walking in the front door and hearing Bug say, "Hey Baby," before I have a chance to say it to him.

  1. I so completely agree! I still call my 3 year old baby...it's so hard to explain to him that even when he's bigger than me, he'll still be my baby. :)

  2. My kids will be my babies - ALWAYS!!!!! and Forever... and everyone will just have to deal with it:)

  3. You lied! This is an emotional post!! :) That is the cutest thing that he says Hey baby! I can't wait to hear what comes out of my baby's mouth... especially since he/she will have LoLo for a dad!

  4. I still call both my boys babies and plan on it for as long as they will let me!

  5. Oh my god, I love it that big calls you Babe!! My son calls my husband Hun!! And I have an auntie that has been known as "hunny" since my cousin came along 32 years ago and always heard her called that by my uncle!!
    Just like the book says, "As long as I" living, my baby you'll be" they will always, always be babies to us momma's!
