Momma, I’m SO Proud of You!

I got to Monkey’s pre-school today in time to see him lying on his nap-mat gnawing on his shirt with his boots on the floor and his feet in the air.  This mom = proud!  Monkey catches sight of me, and the grin that splits his face leaves me in a sloppy puddle of mommy goo in the doorway.

I grin at his teacher, Mrs. L (whom I A-DORE with a capital UH) and she says:

Monkey, tell momma where you went today”

Monkey: “I went to yunch and I eated my pineapples and my capwee sun and my fwooot woll up”

Mrs. L: “Monkey, where else did you GO today?”

Monkey: “I went to wee-cess and then I yayed down...”

Mrs L. (rolling her eyes and suppressing a laugh): “Monkey, did you do a Big Boy thing today?

Me: {catching on finally}  “MONKEY! Did you go potty on the toilet like a big boy?”

Him: {lighting up like a 50 million candle-powered spotlight} “YES, Momma! I a big boy on da Potty!

Me:  “I’m SO Proud of YOU!  You’re such a big boy!!!

I picked him up, hugged him and gave him a big kiss.

He looks at me, grabs my face in his two chubby hands and says:

Momma, I’m so proud of YOU”
