Terms Of Endearment


is the term Lucy has been using instead of calling me "Mommy."

She says things like,
"Can you help me, Honey."
"Honey, I'm hungry."
"Good morning, Honey"
followed by a sloppy kiss!

This girl learns fast as to what really melts my heart and makes me giggle, and has crammed it all into one little word. She may have even used this new term of endearment to get out of trouble. The "I love you, Honey" coming from a two year old's mouth really packs a sweet punch. I could never be mad at her for long!

As for those horrible tantrums she was having while we were camping...they're GONE! She does have the occasional toddler meltdown, which is completely normal and manageable. I am going to blame the summer heat and her sniffling, summer cold that she had at the time. I will try, but I don't think I will ever forget that tantrum in the camping trailer that day. About an hour of screaming and kicking, all over a fingernail trim, and then another that day about a poopy diaper change! I was pretty certain at the time that both of our heads were going to explode. That, too, passed.

I am hoping to never encounter the wrath of Lucy like that again with the head spinning, kicking and screaming, but I won't hold my breath.

For now, I'll just take it all in and enjoy being her "Honey" while it lasts!
