Well, I was laying in bed early this morning waiting for the onslaught of little ones, listening to the baby ga-ga-gooing in his crib, my husband long gone on a business trip, and I was feeling so, so sad about my mom. Missing her so much, wondering if anyone would notice if I just never got out of bed. Tears had just started to slip out of my eyes and into my pillow, and I was thinking I just can't go on without her...when I heard the most incredible thing from the nursery. My son Conor, who is almost nine months old and not talking yet, said clear as a bell in a very needy voice, "Mum-mum-MUM! Mum-mum-mum..." He was actually calling me. I thought I was hearing things, but it just continued. For the rest of the day whenever I would put him down to crawl he would say that when he needed me. He was so pleased with himself, bless his heart...

I have to believe that it was my mom giving me a nudge, a reminder that I have to keep going on, that I have reasons to go on. My sister cried when I told her and said it was absolutely Mom.

Who knows, but I wonder at the timing of things sometimes...maybe I am looking for signs, and I so want to believe she is part of all of this...

It is whatever makes you comfortable. If you believe it's mom, then so be it. Sounds to me like she was trying to get your attention. :wink: They do that a lot, we just have to listen and pay attention. They are around us all the time guiding us through the rough spots, and loving us through the good times.
