Wanna hear what my sweet son said to me ten minutes ago? He peeked his head into my bedroom door and announced, "Hey mom, you know when you'll be tough?----Never." It made me laugh.
I don't wanna be tough. I'm happy that I'm learning some cool martial arts moves while exercising and having fun.
My loving son came into my room after school this afternoon, as I was folding laundry. He usually gives me a warm hug. Today, he knocked me onto my bed. He said, "Hey Ma, I knocked ya over with one arm. That's pathetic. Ha-ha-ha-ha!"
We wrestled. I tried to push him onto his back, so I could give him a full body squeeze as I repeated, "Let me win. Let me win. Let me win."
He pushed me onto my back and gave me a three minute hug, while I repeatedly kissed his cheek. I know that he teases me because he loves me. He makes me happy. He's my buddy.
Remember the commercial for My Buddy? I sing it to my son...
“My Buddy, My Buddy, Wherever I go, he goes, My Buddy, My Buddy, I’ll teach him everything I know…” “My Buddy, My Buddy, My Buddy and me!”
The doll was kinda creepy, but the jingle was cute.
