From day one

I have referred to Gauge as my Baby Bird. This all originated back when he was bottle fed and then progressed on to being spoon fed. The way he would open his mouth reminded by of a sweet baby bird being fed by his mama.

Yesterday evening he told me that he had to go potty. I asked him to try and do it himself. I know that he is fully capable because he does it all the time at daycare. He then decided that he really didn't have to go all that bad. The next time I looked at him he was walking a bit bow legged and waddling like a penguin.  Here is the conversation that followed:


Me: Gauge Rylen, did you just pee pee in your pants.
Gauge: Yes
Me: Go to the bathroom right now. Why on earth did you just pee your pants?
Gauge: Because I want to be your baby bird forever!
Me: Oh sweetheart, you're always going to be Mama's baby bird.....even when you're a big boy and go pee pee in the potty.

{Isn't that the sweetest thing}
