mommy – baby



It has been a long time since I last posted.  I have been busy and preoccupied.  However, I have oodles of posts to write.  I just have to get a few of these lines down.

The twins’ favorite game to play this summer has been ‘Mommy – Baby’.  About 80 percent of the time, Campbell is Mommy (go figure).  It is rather interesting to watch.  Emerson even changes her voice to be more ‘baby-like.’ 

After a game of ‘Mommy – Baby’, Campbell and Emerson were sitting at the table for a snack…which let me explain is rare…they are usually running around eating a snack, leaving a trail of crumbs behind.  It is NO wonder why I have a sigificant ant problem this year. 

Anyway, Campbell firmly stated to Emerson, “Baby, if you don’t eat your snack you are not going to be able to go to Elin’s <their cousin> house tonight.  AND…if you cross the street without looking both ways, you are going to die!  A car will hit you!  Oh…and if you use a bad word, I am putting pepper on your tongue.”

Campbell is like a voice recorder.  She sounded so much like me, I was scared.  Within one swift conversation she took all of my threats from the day and lumped them into one. 

Thankfully, a few minutes later, Campbell switched to sweet mommy, “Come on over, Baby, so I can put you in bed and rub your belly.”
