ONE OF A KIND WORDS

AFTER SHARING WITH YOU THE WORDS THAT ARE LIKE FINGERNAILS ON MY CHALKBOARD OF LIFE, I FEEL I SHOULD NOW SHARE WITH YOU THE WORDS THAT ARE JUST THE SWEETEST MUSIC...

1. MOMMY - NOT MOM OR MOMMA, ALTHOUGH THOSE ARE GREAT. THE SOUND OF THOSE LITTLE VOICES CALLING ME MOMMY IS JUST WONDERFUL. MASON HAS GRADUATED TO REFERRING TO ME AS MOM ABOUT 99% OF THE TIME WITH THE OCCASIONAL MOMMA REFERENCE (THAT I WILL TAKE AS A SECOND TO MOMMY).
ANDREW STILL CALLS ME MOMMY MOST OF THE TIME BUT TRIES TO BE BIG LIKE HIS BROTHER AND CALL ME MOM OCCASIONALLY.

2. I "WUV" YOU - WHEN MY BOYS WERE JUST STARTING TO TALK AND MAKE SENTENCES, THIS WAS THE SWEETEST. IT WAS BITTERSWEET WHEN THEY STARTED TO PRONOUNCE LOVE CORRECTLY.

3. SNUGGLE BUGGLE - THIS IS WHAT ANDREW SAYS WHEN HE WANTS TO CUDDLE FOR A BIT. HE IS FULL OF ENERGY SO IT IS NOT THAT OFTEN THAT HE SLOWS DOWN LONG ENOUGH FOR SNUGGLE BUGGLE TIME BUT WHEN HE DOES I AM ALWAYS READY. THAT IS MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT FRIDAY MOVIE NIGHTS.

4. SHUBUBBA AND HARDWORK STORE - THANKS TO MASON WHEN HE WAS 2-3 YEARS OLD, SCREWDRIVERS WILL ALWAYS BE SHUBUBBAS AND THE HARDWARE STORE WILL ALWAYS BE THE HARDWORK STORE IN THIS FAMILY.

5. CLAUDIA - THIS IS MY FIRST NAME THAT I'VE NEVER THOUGHT VERY FITTING BUT LOVE BECAUSE IT IS MY AUNT'S NAME. I LOVE IT EVEN MORE NOW THAT ANDREW LIKES TO USE MY FIRST NAME IN STORIES WE MAKE UP AT BEDTIME. HE GIGGLES EVERYTIME HE SAYS, "ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS A LITTLE GIRL NAMED CLAUDIA". AGAIN, IT IS BITTERSWEET THAT WE HAVE GROWN OUT OF "A LITTLE GIRL NAMED MOMMY"

IT IS FUNNY HOW THESE LITTLE MISPRONOUNCED WORDS OR MADE UP PHRASES JUST BURN A PLACE IN YOUR HEART. MY PREVIOUS LIST WAS FUN TO WRITE AND LAUGH ABOUT BUT WRITING THIS LIST MAKES MY HEART FEEL FILLED TO THE BRIM!

That is so sweet. You are the best mommy!! It is fun to remember the precious words of our babies as they grow up.

I love this post! I couldn't agree more about Mommy, although Kamree does call me Mama on occasion! Our son, Carson, has always pronounced "dessert" as "bessert" so it has now become a new word at our house. It always cracks us up when he asks for "bessert!"

I love the words of little ones that stick with us for life...my Grandmother is still Gema to me because that is the name I said at 2 when I couldn't say Grandma.

Love Shubbas.
