Calling all expectant parents, I have a question for you all:
Do you talk to your unborn child?
I’ve noticed that recently I’ve been talking to Boogie every single day. In the mornings when I wake up, I’ll roll over to Mommy, rub and kiss her stomach, and say “Good Morning Boogie!” And then at night, I’ll do the same thing, except this time of course I’d say, “Good Night Boogie!” Most notably though is every time I leave for work or class. It’s been a long time thing for me to tell Mommy that I love her whenever I leave to go out somewhere. But now that we’re pregnant, I’ve been telling Boogie that I love him too; although he’s not even here yet! I’d say, “I love you!”, to Mommy and she’d say, “I love you too!”, back. Then I’d say, “I love you Boogie!”, and this is where Mommy always responds with, “Goo goo!”. I guess that’s her way of speaking for Boogie (although he is totally past the “goo goo” stage!). I know that every time I say, “I love you Boogie!”, he can hear me. I’m just waiting for that one day in the future when he first starts learning how to put words together. He’ll look up at me with his little eyes and say, “I love you too Daddy……”
“…and by the way, my diaper’s loaded so you might wanna check that out, ok big guy?”
Yup, that’s my son! :-D
