i think that i hear this request 100 times a day. micah help. which means that micah wants to do it. another phrase he uses is micah self. we have been working on the personal pronouns, but alas he is two, so micah self it is.
this morning i was so tired after working three CRAZY nights in a row that all i wanted to do was sleep all day. (can i get an Amen from all the mother's out there?) anyway, i slothed as long as possible but finally crawled out of bed and began to make breakfest for micah and me. he requested sausage and pancakes. i agreed. i had the sausage going and the pancake batter ready when micah came into the kitchen and said, " micah help". i said ok you can help mama pour the batter. then he disappeared out of the kitchen. i had poured the batter and was getting a spatula out of the drawer when micah walked in again dragging his bathroom step stool behind him. he put it up against the counter where the griddle was set up and again said, "micah help". i said mama heard you micah, but please be careful that is very very hot. he grabbed the spatula and looked at me very seriously and said, "micah not a baby, micah boy!"
when did my two year old become an independent well spoken boy? i smiled and let him turn the pancakes, well help me turn the pancakes.
here's to getting out of bed and having wonderful days despite sleep deprivation!
