Happy Friday + My Neighbors Probably Think I'm Nuts
Friday, February 8, 2013
A few things...Ronin stopped napping during the day. What is up with that? How I am supposed to get anything done with a crazy non napping crawling all over the place, trying to pull himself up on everything baby? I seriously can not let that little wiggle worm out of my sight for one second or it's a face plant.
Oh and why do my neighbors think I'm nuts? Well because I did a lot of yelling yesterday. I had always told myself I would not be a yeller but that was before I had a two and a half year old, who tests my patience almost daily.
Here's the story...
I brought Ronin's infant car seat into our room while I was getting ready for the day. I strapped him in, tucked him all up in his favorite soft blankie and placed his favorite toys all around him. Just before I was about to leave I remembered I had to change over the laundry (or you get stuck with yucky mildewy smelling towels). I was literally gone for 30 seconds tops. What could possibly happen? He was safe in his car seat after all. Well as I was walking back to my room it was quiet. Quiet in my house means trouble. I entered my room and saw the red disaster. Max had proceeded to open a bottle of bright red (oh why did it have to be red) nail polish and got it everywhere! It was ALL over his hands, the carpet...and then I looked down at Ronin and it was as if Max was trying to get rid of the evidence. There in Ronin's cute little chubby hands was the empty bottle of fire truck red nail polish which was also all over him and his car seat. AHHHH! First panic and checking to make sure it was not in their mouth's and then yelling from me. Yep Max got a serious dose of yelling...that lasted for a good while. I explained how MAD I was and told him how he was NOT supposed to go in our (baby proofed) drawers. When the yelling fiasco was over and I called the pediatrician to find out what to do. Turns out all you have to do is soak them in tub and use basic soap until it kind of rubs off.
After I came to the sad realization that all of Ronin's toys and favorite blankie needed to be tossed I assessed the car seat. Oh man the car seat got the worst of it and lets just say that his little seat has a whole new custom look. Oh Max, you crazy little man thanks for keeping me on my toes. Never a dull moment around here that's for sure.
Have a wonderful weekend! My husband and I are going to an amazing charity event this weekend in honor of my 8 year old nephew Baden who is such a fighter and sweet little boy. You can read all about him here.
