My time as co-host for Currently is done now, as Randalin has come back from her maternity leave, haha. Welcome back, and thanks, Lindsey, for letting me co-host for a while!
This week, we’ve been…
Declaring that bedtime is never. Ok, maybe just for the past few days? It seems like the boys just don’t want to go to sleep, or they are really tired and take a late nap, and that messes up their sleep. Either way, bedtime has been a mess lately. Right now, they’re watching Super Why while I type this. At almost 9:30pm. I’m giving myself some major side eye for allowing this, but it’s better than the crying, or the coming into my room incessantly. (Guess which kiddo was doing which.)
Saving box tops. I used to give them to John’s mom, who is a teacher, but she is retiring this year. I guess I’d better see if The Munchkin’s teacher collects them… I meant to ask her at our parent/teacher conference yesterday, but forgot.
Demolishing nice, quiet games? The school has been working on getting The Munchkin to be more assertive, and that basically seems to translate to BRAT when he’s home. If he’s playing with something, and The Bean comes over to play with him, (Which he always does, because the boy loves his big brother.) The Munchkin starts yelling “No, Bean. No, Bean! No, Bean. No no no no NO BEAN!” and I want to shoot someone. I explained to him that he has to tell The Bean more; like…no, what, for example. That just changed his yelling to “No, Bean. Stop, Bean. My toy, Bean, no! Mine, mine, it’s mine! NO!” *sigh* At least these are typical three year old problems?
Sniffing little boy butts. Poomageddon is still in full swing over here. No one is happy about it.
Despising different things, depending on who we’re talking about. The boys are despising diaper changes right now because they both have some gnarly diaper rash going on. I swear, The Bean has PTSD because of it, and The Munchkin actually cries out for help during his… Public diaper changes are not fun. I am despising not having enough “me” time. I can either do all my housewife/mom duties, or I can do my own thing. Not both. Or, I could wake up earlier, but hahaha yeah. I wouldn’t enjoy anything I did while up early. John has some shoulder problems right now that might require surgery, so I would guess that’s what he despises at the moment.
