Waking Up

Some days waking up is easy. Some days you need to do it slowly with a few good books.

Losing It

Some days I barely have it together. Tonight was one of those days. I was cooking dinner and something didn’t seem quite right. I normally put things away as I use them but I couldn’t seem to find the can of chicken broth I had opened. I was sure I had a memory of putting it in the fridge but I couldn’t find it. It wasn’t sitting on the counter and I was sure I had set it on a shelf. I even looked in the recycling. No luck. I finally chalked it up to craziness and moved on. After dinner, I was unloading the dishwasher and opened a cabinet door. Imagine my surprise to find my missing can of chicken broth – with my glass measuring cups…

I’m just thankful I didn’t find it days later.

Finally Biting The Bullet

They always say you treat the last baby different. That is definitely proving true at our house. Both of my other pacifier babies I took their pacifier away at 10 months. They each handled it differently, but it wasn’t too bad. Ben is now 14 months (I think?), and we finally took it away. I’ll admit I thought about taking it away at 10 months, but I was lazy. He’s a really good baby and I just didn’t want to deal with even a minor hiccup. He also drools constantly. My other kids only drooled when they were teething. Ben started drooling at 4 months and has never stopped. However, the pacifier will stop the drooling – at least for a little while. Today hasn’t been too bad without the pacifier. We’ll see how tonight goes!

Playing Or Working?

These kids are dying for warm weather. The minute they saw the sun and felt like it was somewhat warm they begged to put on swimsuits and wash my car. I figured why not. My car couldn’t look any worse and it really was a nice day outside!

Little Girl Giggles

These two disappeared upstairs and I only saw them for help with zippers during outfit changes. I had to beg them to eat lunch at 1:30. Thankfully they tolerated a few pictures along the way.

Rare Sighting

Ben rarely gets unhappy and even rarer is to see him throw an all out tantrum. Today it happened. I even took pictures because it was almost cute it happens so infrequently. He saw the big kids leave (with their backpacks) and could not handle the fact that he wasn’t going too. He tried in every way he knew how to tell me that he wanted to go. He wasn’t happy with my answers or my attempts to distract him. He even got his shoes and the only backpack he could reach and stood at the door screaming. Poor Ben. I felt horrible.

Not to worry. As with all 1 year olds, there is a secret weapon. Baby Shark on Alexa was able to distract him. (Unfortunately I then had to listen to it for the 30 minutes.)

Butterfly?

Sometimes you just need to have your own personal cocoon for a while.
