Fish Tales
by Karla ° Tuesday, April 10, 2007
Uncle Jay and Baby NateMy family came to visit us for Easter and since I have not wanted to let Nate out of my sight for a period of time greater than seven seconds, my parents came equipped with bribe tactics to get me out of house and brought hockey tickets for the game that would determine if the Toronto Maple Leafs qualified for the playoffs.

As much fun as going to a hockey game is, I couldn’t bring myself to go. Firstly, I am not ready to be away from my son for an extended period of time. Secondly, my boobs are not capable of being away from the human that they feed for an extended period of time without turning into rock solid milk cannons and thirdly, if I didn’t go, it would give Mark and my Dad a chance to have some male bonding time.

So while my Dad and Mark were out doing manly things like eating street meat and comparing chest hairs and cheering on the Leafs, we had a wild pajama party at home and Nate kept us all entertained by telling big fish tales.

"Really McGramma, it was that big!"

Karla, this is the cutest thing ever! Reminds me of the time when my son first started conversing. He's two and a half and he hasn't stopped talking since :)

The time will come when you are ready to leave baby Nate and then it will be so apparent. Your lack of meedom will suddenly threaten to smother you and then you might call sitters A-Z and take the first live body that can be at your house in 2 hours to watch your most precious bundle. Just so you can be alone. Not that I'm saying this is what I did. Just, you know, an example.

Brandon is 20 months and I still get sad every time. However, since I waited so long now I can't leave him with ANYONE but my parents. In fact we had an adult only wedding to attend in California where my husbands parents are, and I couldn't go because my son wouldn't stay with his parents. Now, I kind of feel like i made a mistake not letting more people watch him. Luckily he will at least go to my parents or my husband and I would never have a nice dinner out alone again! Ha ha actually the one time I tried leaving him with my aunt when he was still pretty little, I spent the entire meal calling my aunt and bugging her and then I called and actually woke him up, it was awful! Give it time though. It will happen when its ready.

You have the cutest little guy ever!

When my MIL comes over, she always looks at my utterly silent little man and says "are you telling Grandma stories?" which he obviously is NOT.

This, however, is an incredible story!

Yes, there will come a time when you will need to leave him, and you should FORCE yourself to do it. That first time is so hard, but it needs to be done, my dear.

And, he's so talkative! That's great!

My 8 year old interprets:

Ok, um, this guy had a gun, there a giant in front of him an ‘den he said “how about we be friend instead of enemies?” an ‘den he said “sure!”
So they been friends forever
‘den, thay saw a fidget go by and ‘den they did peace sign to each other
The end

Oh, how sweet! He has so much to say!

He is too cute for words.

Wow, he's talkative already!

I can share your pain about not wanting to leave the kids. We still haven't left our 15 month old son with anyone for more than a couple hours. Our first son was never babysat by anyone until he was 2.

What a chatter box. And is he ever cute!

He sure is happy to be with McGramma!

Someday he will get married and move to another place, and still you will wonder if the world is treating him okay.

that is hysterical that video!

Nate is getting so big!

Your brother is so cute Karla!

Nate is a very vocal little guy. I don't think my daughter ever "talked" so much.

I completely understand why you don't want to leave your baby. Porgie is 10 months old, and has never been left with a babysitter. I honestly don't want to leave her with anyone else.

I can relate to not wanting to leave your baby. I hated leaving Andrew until he was almost 2.

Don't worry. I was the same way leaving Zander. I'm still like that for Logan because of his problems. But one day, you will just be ready to get out of the house, and there's no reason to do it until you're ready. You want to be able to enjoy your time away!

BTW, that video is soooo cute!

Oh My Goodness! Talk about the cutest thing EVER!!!!

There is something about babies "talking" that makes my one ovary ache (that's right, only one, eek!) and my heart melt all over my insides.

He is too precious, Karla!
