- Last night I told Squish to clean the living room. I even gave him detailed instructions as to how he should go about cleaning the living room. He walked in, surveyed the mess, gave a HUGE sigh and said "Here goes nothing" I have no idea where he got that phrase from.
-Lou and I walked in to see him sleeping last night and the reality that he is really a little boy and not at all a baby anymore hit us like a load of bricks. It made my uterus hurt.
- I have this fear that my Squish is going to be a player when he's in his teenage years. He is such a proficient flirt at this tender age...it can be going nowhere good.
- At our play date today Bear pushed around this very light and not at all steady kid sized stroller frame...further solidifying my belief that he can, in fact, walk. He's just choosing not to to spite me.
-We are contemplating a trip to the circus this weekend (insert your comments about the mistreatment of the animals here____) I think Squish would love it but I'm not sure how well Bear would do sitting for that long. It is always fun to do this kind of stuff because Lou grew up in a super small town and has never done any of it either, so it's like taking 2 kids for the first time and seeing their excitement.
- This sometimes becomes a problem, because Lou tends to get very distracted by shiny things. So it's like taking 2 kids for the first time and having to keep them looking forward, walking in a straight line, not running into people, staying with mommy....I'm thinking one of the kiddie leashes would be a good thing for both of them.
-I'm so looking forward to Lou being home for a couple of days...this parenting by yourself thing is for the birds. I'm not looking forward to two more months of it.
-Since I'm parenting by myself, I have no energy to cook anymore. I feel like all my boys ever eat anymore is chicken nuggets and fish sticks. That heavens for play dates at Jen's house so they can get some variety in their diet. Lou and I have had frozen pizza twice this week and I believe well go for number 3 tonight. And there will be wine....and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Ahh bed time, I can hear your seductive voice calling my name right now.
