sometimes our days are ruled by a mood or event. i know that happens to me all the time. ill get fixated on one emotion and it just swallows up my day for the most part. rarely though is ones day ruled by an inanimate object. enter yesterday where, when my dad dropped off augustine (he spent the night at my parents house) he forgot the holiest of holies. LOVEY. only when he was about to lay down for a nap did we notice this and no amount of reassurance would convince him that he could in fact go to sleep without him. i mean i dont blame him, he's never gone to sleep without him since he was 3 months old. so we had to be carted to marysville (which is 30+ minutes away) and then back all the while trying to keep auggie awake because if the boy naps in the car for even 20 minutes during our commute the day is shot sleep wise and he will be Cranky Mcfusserson Whino. (sidebar: lately when he gets really tired he starts growling and twice he bit me! all part of him still needing two naps yet only taking one i feel.) so Mcfusserson and lovey were reunited and i was victorious in keeping the in-car naps away (by singing every annoying and entertaining song i could think of to him). needless to say i might just have to take a paddle to my dad if he forgets lovey again. this is the THIRD time. *shakes finger*
i can't stop reading - big problem huh? ever since i decided to read while nursing ive finished so many books!! this is one other tiny reason i wonder if more children are right for us. i really get a lot out of reading (and personal time in general). if i have no time to read i think part of me will be lost.
this mornings cup of tea brought to me by girl_xxx. thank you!!! she sent me a "tea care package" filled to the brim with all different flavors. todays tea - orange blossom. mmm... the last two mornings ive taken a chapter from my dad's ol cookbook and made homemade hashbrowns with onions and red peppers. reminds me of camping - he always made homemade hashbrowns on the outdoor grill. oh and im making banana nut bread later this after noon. let's see if auggie let's the batter bake before eating it all this time.
augustine is doing so well learning to go on the potty. of course im unsure how much he's going in his diapers but i feel like he's about 50/50. so my question is this - should i invest in cloth training pants or attempt to go straight to underwear for him? non-parents reading this could probably care less but oh! the life of a mama.
