Over and Out….

Tonight Meggers decided to see how absorbent a roll of toilet paper was in our bathroom sink.  It looked like an mondo sized spit ball FUN!  After daddy and Meggers cleaned it out, I sent Meggers to brush her teeth and get ready for bed as usual. 

Daddy and I were sitting at the dinner table when Meggers appeared in the bedroom doorway holding her wrist to her mouth like a James Bond movie…

“do do do dooo Mommy, come in Mommy”

realizing what she was doing I played along and put my wrist to my mouth.

“Yes Meggers”

“Mommy I need help brushing my teeth, but you need to be careful, watch out for the sock monster”

Daddy started laughing as this was a new one for Meg.

“OK Meggers I’ll be there pronto over and out”

Meggers beaming with pride said “Over and out”.

So I jumped over the sock monster and made it safely to the bathroom to help Meggers brush her teeth.

About an hour later we were laying in bed and I hear  a very soft whisper “Do do do do Mommy”

“do do do doo yes Meggers”

“Lets be friends for ever”

“OK Meggers”

“Mommy I love you sooooo much”  By now my heart is melting.

“I love you sooo much to baby”


“Yes Meg”

“you are in my heart”

“and your in mine Meg”

“G’nite Mommy, over and out”

“Good night Meggers, I love you, over and out”

Then even softer I heard her say “Do do do dooo” and she was asleep.

  1. This is a beautiful post…right along with the one you wrote about her epilepsy.

    Simply touching and making me cry.

    What a beautiful moment to record. I hope you are saving all these posts in a book for her. I hope to soon get to doing that for JG too.

    Again, just loved your post here and your blog.


  2. So sweet!

    Frog is a fan of wet toilet paper too. We’ve had to skim entire rolls out of his bath. He loves the extra viscosity it adds to the water.


  3. I love it when they say things like that. Do do doooo.

    About my sister’s store, she often does custom items. She’s out of town right now but I’ll have to ask her about the Epilepsy awareness idea. I can’t believe we haven’t thought of it ourselves. Thanks for the idea. I’ll keep you posted.


  4. That is so sweet! I love it when my kids say stuff like that… it isn’t as often anymore with G and C, they’re older and way to cool for that, but R’s young enough that he still does, and it melts my heart when he does.
    Awww… big sigh.


  5. That’s so adorable! This is why you keep a mommyblog. You’d never remember this exactly like it happened in 10 years. Here’s to many more memories (and cute posts! :))


  6. Hi Kirsty!

    Can’t remember how I came across your blog, but I’m glad I did!

    Anyhow, my son, Colm, has learning difficulties and epilepsy. He’s 28, so I’m well ahead of you on your journey with Meggers. He’s also got Aspergers syndrome. He now lives near me in a house with two others where he has the care he needs 24/7. And he’s happy. Most of the time…

    Colm’s story is a long one full of me fighting to get him the best education, medical attention and care that I could (his mother stopped helping 18 years ago) & I won’t relate it all here. However I can tell you that for many years the medical profession believed that his condition was genetic. The chances of having a sibling with similar problems was 25%, I was told. Nevertheless, my wife (now my ex) and I went on to have 2 girls. Neither has any medical problems. We have all had our lives enriched by Colm. We have learned what unconditional love is, how to care for others, and how lucky WE are!

    Colm still takes up lots of my time, but now his sisters also spend time with him. He is lucky to have caring siblings. And I KNOW that when I’m no longer able to look after his needs his sisters will take that task on. It is a great comfort to me.

    Don’t give up the chance of having more children just because of Meggers’ condition. I expect that she would enjoy having a little brother or sister…or 2 or 3!!

    I have my own business and one of my employees has epilepsy and minor learning difficulties. She’s in her mid 30’s, and her epilepsy cannot be controlled by medication. I and other members of my staff regularly pick her up off the floor after a fit and organize getting her home for the recovery period. Her work is a very large part of her life and she’s a happy lady. The other members of staff are used to her problems and everyone looks out for her. It’s humbling to witness.

    I hope that I’ve given you some hope for the future. It’s not as bleak as you think! I’ll keep popping in to see how you’re getting on, but if you want to know more about Colm’s life, just email me. You’ll find the address on my profile.

    Best wishes



  7. You know, 19thmayflower, I couldn’t wait for my babies to start walking or talking. Now it seems like all I ever say is, “Sit down and be quite!” Enjoy the peace while it lasts. lol.
