Earlier today, Cam asked me, “Is it hard taking care of two kiddos?”
This could mean I’m so obviously struggling that he became aware of the difficulty. But, I’d rather think he’s a curious, inquisitive and thoughtful little human. I like the idea that he is potentially a tiny but “beyond the id”.
My answer was, “Sometimes, but always worth it!”
And then I asked, “Why did you think to ask me that?”
He had a wry little smile and said, “Because we’re always doing things like eating and playing and napping….”
Come to think of it, he might be aware that it’s tough because I keep asking him “How many arms does mommy have?”
That always makes him laugh and lighten up on the requests.
Maybe I should start balancing things on my head too.
