Friday, Feb 1 2008 - Hammers and Lemon Juice
View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
My daughter slept for 5 straight hours last night, followed by another 4 straight hours. This is miraculous. I've never felt so well-rested in my entire life. And I don't think I'm exaggerating.
Will had a horrible day yesterday. I started a mental list of things that would be more fun that his whining and tantrums - they included taking a hammer to my fingers, lemon juice on paper cuts, eating liver and lima beans, etc. Steve and I have developed a blank, wide-eyed stare we use with other to silently denote our disbelief that this is our once loving, sweet, cooperative son. The stare makes me laugh, which helps.
Poor monkey, though. Two is a pretty rough age to be - a) he can ALMOST do tons of things on his own, so he is constantly being frustrated by the "almosts" b) his language skills can't keep up with his brain, and c) its farging cold out so he can't run around except in our home and at limited other places.
And then he does things like spontaneously put away all his toys and tell me "Wee-moo reeddy hep-ful" or say "Lov-oo, mommy" or develop a HUGE bottom lip with gigantic crocodile tears and I just want to eat him up.
I have a feeling my weigh in and measurement check will be good this week. I think I see some changes in my body. Phew! Accurate food measurement is, apparently, important.
