Daddy to the rescue.
I read that article linked at the end of the last post shortly after posting yesterday and gotta say that shockingly enough, I was not into. I'm a big fan of all things sarcastic and the ugly truth is my favorite kind of truth, but that writer sounded downright disgruntled with his stay-at-home status. I prefer a disgruntled candy shell over a hidden chocolate sweet center. I think this guy was missing his chocolate center. That or I'm turning to mush. Please say it's the former! Anyway, I don't judge him for being disgruntled; everybody knows that not everything is for everyone, and that includes staying home with kids. That guy seems to be one of those people for whom it's not for. What I don't understand is why he wouldn't just get a job and a nanny (maybe he eventually did? I didn't look at the date on the article). He is right about the messes though; I do clean up the same mess over and over and over and over and over again (hunks of bread, all over the high chair and on the floor). But that's anywhere, isn't it? I mean, even at my old job, I felt like I was doing the same stuff over and over again. Like Janis Joplin said, "It's all the same f***ing day, man." I've always liked that quote but it fits my life now more than ever. Friday night, Tuesday night, weekend, week day; it makes no difference to me.
Although that last paragraph would be a great place to end this post, I've gotta drag it on a bit more because I took a couple of cute pictures this morning right before Hannah had a particularly bad head bonk. She's been having more and more of those lately. For a while my mothering reflexes were awesome; I intercepted many a potential disaster, but either I've gotten slower in my near-30 status old age, or she's getting a lot faster. Probably both. Grannah suggested a football helmet this morning and although she meant it as a joke, I'm Googling baby football helmets. It's that or a bubble, but I have no idea where to find a giant, indestructible bubble. Pre-head bonk, we played some guitar....
Then I managed to catch the Elvis lip curl thing she's been doing lately.
