Mumum

I miss my chooch.

I know, I know, I have two kids. I miss them both, but I miss little kid a lot. Mostly because I know he misses me a lot. Whenever I'm gone he spends his time asking "Where's mumum?" to everyone who might answer. Then when they tell him I'm at work, he screws up his little face into a scowl and says "Ohhhhhh" in a frustrated little voice.

It's amazing how I can feel like he's sucking the very life out of me with his constant need for physical affection, and then I miss it so much that it physically affects me.

Big Kid is pretty unconcerned about my absence. I just called home and spoke to both of them and I could tell Big Kid was distracted and ready to get off the phone, but little kid was happy to hear my voice and exclaimed "YEAH!" to everything I asked.

I bought him real cowboy boots from Texas and can't wait to show him. I know I'm setting myself up for embarrassing outings in a ridiculous get-up, most likely including every day wear combined with a cowboy hat and boots, but he's so freaking cute.

I miss all of my boys and will be happy to get back home. It's warm there.

OMG, I'm so glad this post is about your kids because I won't even go in to what I thought you missing your "chooch" was...

Just so you know, he will never want to take those boots off!! Bathtub, bedtime, the works.

And the twins suck the life out of me daily, but when gone... heart ache.

Umm, when I read your first line "I miss my chooch" followed by "I have two kids" I saw this post going in a completely different direction. In TN, cooch is a va-jay-jay.

Traveling alone is rough. I hate it.

But I can't wait to see a picture of lk with a rockin' tshirt, a diaper, and cowboy boots!

LOL at the chooch/cooch confusion. We call little kid choocha, I think we've gone over this in the closet before people. Read up!
