The small child has a Lego Minifigure problem. The main issue being, he likes to rip them apart and lose all the tiny pieces. So sometimes he has to hodgepodge them together to make a complete person. He might have taken things a little far this time though.

Project 365 Day 6

I think Tim Gunn would be proud of him for making it work.

Makes me happy

My child is a hopelessly terrible sleeper. He stays up most nights until 1 or 2 in the morning. There’s nothing that puts this kid out. After too many months of being frustrated, I finally threw in the towel and said fine, stay up as late as you want. But you’ll do it in your room, and you’ll be quiet. This arrangement has been incredibly effective. I still don’t fall asleep before him, but at least I’m not torturing myself (and him) with hours of futile attempts to get him to sleep. He hops right up in bed when he’s ready and goes to sleep on his own.

Occasionally this arrangement doesn’t work out, for various reasons. Like last night he was terrified of his room and begged to come to my bed. I admit to being a little frustrated. I had plans, dangit. Put laundry away. Watch a show that’s inappropriate for children. Eat candy.

Instead we turned on Angry Birds. I answered a million questions. I reminded him to be quiet a billion times.

Project 365 Day 5

I watched him sit on the edge of the bed during the exciting parts. It was late and I was tired, but I was happy.

The small child’s favorite movie of the moment is The BFG. He builds himself little forts and declares the inside “giant country” which is both cute and ironic. He drinks frobscottle (fizzy drink where the bubbles go down instead of up) and lets out great big whizzpoppers (explosive green farts). He’s starting to sound more and more like the actual BFG, and the scariest part is, I can actually understand him. A good sign we’ve watched the movie way too many times.

When he’s not acting the part of the giant, he’s wrapped in a blanket, calling himself Sophie. Truthfully, I think he’s just cold because he walks around the house with no bottoms on all day. Speaking of, potty training the little fournado is moving right along. I wish I understood why he’s so resistant, but we’re getting through it. And today when I very excitedly praised him for pooping in the potty he disdainfully informed me that it was not poop, but a “solid turd.”

Maybe one day I will be as smart as he is.

Project 365 Day 4

Some days he’s so into having his picture taken. Today was not one of those days. I still think he’s pretty cute when he’s willfully ignoring me pleas to just look at the camera though.

I is for…

I swear I don’t know how to adult, like at all. I spent probably an hour looking for a calendar online. Then I ended up wasting an obscene amount of time searching all of Barnes & Noble for this particular calendar I really super duper want (their website lied, they don’t have the coveted calendar), and before I knew it, it was time to head to the movies. But my kid wasn’t even ready because why would I remember to do that? And after the movie of course I needed to go to Dollar Tree. And Target. Because I was on the other side of town and those stores might have different stuff than the ones on my side. And before you ask, yes I did need that $1 Hanukkah sign even though I’m not Jewish. I also needed those Reese’s Pieces stuffed Peanut Butter Cups. They’re chilling in the fridge. I’m waiting for the small child to go to bed so I don’t have to share. Mom of the year.

But do you think anywhere in there I remembered I might want to try to get a picture for today?

Nope. So once again, only 3 days into this challenge, I’m still scrambling. I have a feeling this is going to be a common theme.

When we got home I asked Wyatt if he thought we should get some pictures of his toys. He loves having photo shoots with his toys, so he was totally down. I took pictures of dinosaurs and the Millennium Falcon and trains and various super heroes. But my most favorite is him playing with the ice cream cones from this Melissa and Doug set (thanks aunt Jenn!).

Project 365 Day 3

He was coming over to let me have a lick. Because even though he’s definitely a “fournado” he’s still pretty sweet. As I’m writing this he’s behind me on the chair, his Spiderman umbrella open and perched over my head so I don’t get wet. I told you he was sweet.

View from my window

I knew I probably wasn’t going to have a ton of daylight to play with today, so I went ahead and got a quick view out my bedroom window just in case I couldn’t get to anything else. It turned out to be a smart idea. By the time I got back from my hair appointment and a little shopping (like I wasn’t going to show off my gray-less roots to Target) it was rainy and gloomy. Then I may or may not have fallen asleep in my dad’s recliner while the small child watched The Peanuts Movie. Proper parenting right here.

Project 365 Day 2

There it is in all it’s glory. My bedroom view. I have a great vantage point for watching the small child skirt death on the sports edifice (as our sweet neighbor calls it) in the backyard. And now that’s it’s winter I have a pretty good view inside the backyard neighbor’s windows. Which just made me realize they must have a pretty good view into mine. Excuse me while I try to figure out how much naked dancing I’ve done in here.

The answer is too much.
