Zuzu on Motherhood

Zuzu likes to play Family. She's The Mommy and I'm the Sister.

What does a Mommy do? You might be wondering.

According to Zuzu, a Mommy calls everyone "Sweetie."

She spends a lot of time buckling and unbuckling people in the car.

She holds her kids' hands when walking around.

She takes them places like "Count Mickula's Castle." (She also announces that we'll be picking up Grammy and Bops on the way there.)

She negotiates by saying things like, "If you want to go to the lie-barry, you have to be a good listener."

She tells her children that they should not run away from her at the park or she will be very upset.

She also grabs sippy cups away from babies and says, "Don't drink that! That's my beer."

I don't know about you, but it's obvious to me that she's pretty much got all the mothering basics down.


  1. My grand daughter likes to play "family" also. I remember growing up calling it playing house. I like playing "family" better. So cute. They really do listen to us don't they!

    1. They totally do! I had no idea how often I called her "Sweetie" until she started imitating it. So funny.

  2. Yup, that's basically it!

    I LOVE seeing my parenting through Gwen's eyes. It makes me feel like I'm actually doing something right, when I see her cuddle her babies and tell them "You're all right, I'm here", or "Good job for doing X". There's a lot of positive reinforcement and reassuring.

    1. Sweet play with the baby dolls is so nice to see! I love the way Coco pats their backs.

  3. I am cracking up. "Don't drink that, its my beer." Too funny.

  4. Super sweet. She has a great role model!
