ups and downs

ben and i have been struggling with our “relationship” recently. and when i say struggling, i mean a 24 hour a day battle of the wills. did i tell you he was yelling “NO MOMMY NO!” in his sleep the other night? i’m totally serious.

but he still has his beyond sweet moments. and todays was sweet…and smelly and hilarious. when he needs to….let’s say…take care of business….in the bathroom, he usually says he needs “privacy.” and requests that i leave the bathroom and shut the door. funny. but today he said, “mommy, please don’t leave. come here. right here. stand here (RIGHT BY THE TOILET) mommy. and…….hold my hand.” hilarious. so there i stood. holding ben’s hand as he pooped. so sweet my son.
