percy has started saying mommy now. like he said it before, but not a lot. he says it all the time now and just…guh. nothing feels better.
last night i got home late and i could hear the manpiece putting him down. he was crying + calling for mommy. i wanted to rush in there + sweep him up in my arms, but i fought the impulse. i’m not going to be there with him 100% of the time + he needs to learn to be soothed by others.
(it worked, btw. he settled down + snuggled up to his daddy + they both fell asleep in his room, as i laid back on the couch + watched call the midwife without the manpiece’s running peanut gallery of one on any + all tv shows. that’s luxury dawg)
