So this last week I have been playing the single mom role as my husband has been traveling. As a surprise for him (which I can write on the blog because he doesn’t read this thing anyway), I mowed the lawn. All night, I was telling Cameron that we were going to mow the lawn when we got home from running our errands. He kept saying that that was Daddy’s lawn mower.
I went to the back where the lawn mower was kept, Cameron anxiously following behind me with his own “mower”. I rolled it onto the grass and pulled the starter and it came to life. I looked at my son and his eyes were wide. He stared at me long and hard, trying to figure it out. After a few seconds, a grin started and grew on his face. I lifted up my arm to show my boy that his mommy has muscles. He mirrored it right back to me.
When we were done mowing the lawn, he ran to my side and told me “Mama, that was so cool.” Tell me about it kid. So cool.
