Matthew is 3 now, and everyone says 3 is harder than 2. In some ways, I agree, but in others, I do not.
Matthew certainly knows what he wants and tries very hard to succeed in his endeavors (like his dad), even if he knows he’s, “making Mommy mad” (oh, the way he says MAAAAD is so cute!). But he is also just the sweetest thing I’ve ever met! He’s always been a sweet boy, but today … Today melted my heart.
(Jackson was howling in his bag in the front seat.)
Matthew – “Mommy put cat in car.”
Me – “which cat is that, Matthew?”
Matthew – “Lily.”
Me – “No, buddy, it’s Jack. Do you remember where Lily is?”
(He points up to the sky.)
Matthew – “Up high.”
Me – “In the clouds, huh?”
Matthew – “Uh huh. I want her back, Mommy.”
Then he waves to the clouds and softly says, “Hi, Lily,” with the sweetest smile on his face.
I teared up as we both blew her a kiss from the car.
