BLOGGING A2Z CHALLENGE: LETTER M

MONKEY CLIMBING UP MY LEG

I won't lie that when I finally became pregnant with my child I had no idea how I was going to carry her and do things Moms do. However, I knew I was capable and would have to adapt things my way. I also hoped the child would adapt as well.

When BabyGirl was 10 months old I had to have major surgery. It was logical for BabyGirl and I to go live with my parents since her father worked a lot and both of us needed care 24/7.  

BabyGirl was crawling by then and lifting herself up to stand. I couldn't bend and pick her up because of the surgical cut. One day, she wanted me to hold her, she indistinctively climbed up my leg just like a monkey. 

That moment made me come to the realization that SHE adapted to me. 

When I recovered from surgery and we were back home, it continued whether I was sitting or standing.   It would be one of those things that my daughter and I would do. She grew up with strong legs and arms and I truly believe it was because of her climbing me.

Kids amazingly adapt to all situations. In this case, my daughter sensed what was difficult for me to do and she made it easier.

Her nickname used to be Munkie. 

Does anyone remember this little song?  BabyGirl and I enjoyed this little song.

  2. What a wonderful memory. I can't even imagine how I would manage to climb anything at my age, but I did love climbing trees when I was little.

    Fun Post!

  3. Aw such a sweet story! I *can* pick up my babe, but if I don't do it fast enough, he tries to climb me too! It's pretty adorable how determined they can get when they want their mama!

    1. Kids are something else. I could pick her up with difficulty but she adapted. I always believed God provides in all kinds of ways!

  4. I have a book about that song. I used to read it to my daughter when she was two. I still have it and will read it to my son when he gets older.
