It’s 10am and so far my day has gone a little something like this…
I sat down to feed Adler breakfast and Sprocket decided he HAD to go to the bathroom right then! He paced back and forth with his annoying little whimper until I finally heard enough and got up to let him out.
So Adler finishes breakfast and we go to change his SECOND poopy diaper of the morning, when we come back to find Sprocket had jumped onto my white couch with his muddy little paws. He gets put in time out, but as soon as he’s out he’s attached to my hip. I’ve put up two loads of laundry and stumped my toes on his lanky legs no less than 15 times this morning. I really do love him. He just tests my patience.
Adler on the other hand rose at 6:30 and was full of energy. He’s already tried to eat mud, toilet paper, a contact case, and a hair bow. When he’s not trying to cram every object he finds in his mouth, he’s in the bathroom ripping the toilet paper to shreds, going through my jewelry box tangling my necklaces, and figuring out ways to escape past the horrific contraption of toys I have piled to block the stairs, so he can’t climb them.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m already tired! Nonetheless I’ve poured my cup of coffee and we are going to march on to try to do some more Christmas shopping. Shopping stories with a baby is a whole other blog entry. Are there other moms with me? Luckily, one thing did go right for me and I was able to get a shower and put this outfit together and post on the blog while Adler napped and before the chaos reconvenes!!
