I've been around the block enough that you'd think some things would be giant, waving, red, obvious flags. Like when the kids were playing so nicely(read: no screaming, crying, etc.) for 5 minutes while I completed a task. Oh yes. What was I thinking? For that matter, what was I thinking leaving a box of markers in a reachable basket?
Thankfully, they were washable. For the record- washable seems to really mean 'after a good soak.' Which we did! Right after I made good use of the mess and made today spaghetti day. If we're going to go out, we're going to go ALL out! Mama's using her noggin' now.
I would also like to take this moment to assure anyone that sees my son over the next few weeks, he is learning to walk. I do not push him down. Although I feel terribly guilty about the peek-a-boo incident last week. A basic rule you may not know regarding peek-a-boo: it is not a good plan to put the blanket on your head while your baby is sitting on a toddler chair, even though you are right in front of them sitting on the floor. Don't do it.
Back to the walking, my sweet prince will be one on the 28th. He decided to get serious about walking just a few days ago and now is a walking maniac. He is so little, it is just the sweetest thing to watch! Of course, as soon as I get the recorder on he goes back to crawling...
Despite the marker and spaghetti mess, the extra laundry, the extra baths, the 98 cents the mailman needed and the additional bonk to Boob Man's head thanks to a tired mom and stealthy baby moves, it is a good day. We have art supplies to do crafts with, food to eat, clothes to wear and washers to wash, running HOT water, 98+ cents in the piggy bank and healthy bodies to heal our bonks. My glass isn't just half full, it runs over.
You can't keep me down, Monday! Try again next week!
