Strange that it's Friday night...it feels really slow like a Saturday night. I just laid my littlest one down for a nap about half an hour ago. Since it is now 6pm I am sure I will be regretting this decision later tonight! Oh well, sometimes you just long for that peace and quiet where no one is hanging on to your leg or crying for mommy...at least for a little while.
The baby (who is now 13 months old) actually got really mad at me tonight. Can you believe that?! My sweet little momma's boy with his 3 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth...bright blue eyes and hilarious little laugh...mad at ME?! He wanted something and I have absolutely no idea what. So he starts to bang on the keyboard and I tell him NO. He stops, cries, and then does it again. Repeat scenario several more times. He finally gets tired of it all, grabs the newspaper next to me (that he knows I read and use), and toddles over to the kitchen...straight to the trashcan! Drops it in and then turns to face me with this little tear-stained look of satisfaction. Little stinker! And just earlier today I was showing off to my mom the fact that my littlest man could throw his own diapers away! Hmmppphhh...I guess he'll be using that against me now!!!
Someone once said to me:
When they're really little they are just so cute you could just eat them!
And when they grow up, you wish you did!
He IS a really ultra-cutey-pie baby...sooo I won't hold this little "incident" against him. I can only imagine the antics that he will be doing as he gets older though. After all, he does have two big brothers...who are always having adventures...mostly good, sometimes not so good! LOL
Also earlier on this chilly evening, Tank was begging for ice cream. So I told him No ice cream...it is TOO cold for ice cream!
I thought the conversation was over but half an hour later he comes all the way upstairs just to tell me in a very matter of fact voice: Mommy, the INSIDE of the ice cream is NOT cold! Puh-lease! I wasn't exactly born yesterday little man, you cannot pull that one on me. So he smiled and left the room.
I don't think I would've ever tried such goofy, truthless tactics to get my way when I was little...at least not that I remember...or that I'll admit...they must get that from dh's side of the family!!!
Hope y'all have a great weekend and stay OUT of the mall! It's a crazy, nightmare zoo out there...
