When you’re an adult.

Dear Son #2,  

This weekend you turned four months old and you’re getting so big and growing up way too fast. I feel that one day I’m going to blink a little slower than normal and you’re going to be getting married, having kids of your own before I really have a chance to prepare you for adulthood. So, I have taken the time to compile a list of certain habits you seem to have picked up that, from my experience, you won’t get away with in the adult world.  

  1. Pooping the bed. Or the car. Or anywhere that’s not a toilet basically. 
  2. Burping in church. Loudly. I’m talking echoes. 
  3. Farting in the pool. People see the bubbles. 
  4. Waking everyone up in the middle of the night. To eat. Or poop. 
  5. Pulling Earrings. Hair. Necklaces. Anything that’s not yours. 
  6. Excessively drooling on people. Friends. Family. The nice ladies at church.
  7. Screaming bloody murder when you’re hungry. Have a Snickers.  
  8. Peeing in the tub. Come on, your brother drinks that water.  
  9. Sneezing in people’s faces. Only cute for so long.  
  10. Puking in my hair. Right after I washed it. And blow-dried. 

See? Adulting is not all it’s cracked up to be. So for now, you just keep being my little baby boy.  

Love Mommy,
