What ever would I post today were it not for the brilliance of Keely and her Random Tuesday Thoughts? Stop by her place, grab a button, and pay homage to her greatness.
*Just when the sleep training was going awesome and effortless, Miles has gone and gotten a virus complete with runny nose and fever. So there that goes.
*I think Oscar's knees are permanently skinned. It seems just when the scabs finally fall off his knees have a monumental collision with the pavement. He also has tons of scabs on the tops of his feet because I let him run around barefoot. I = Awesome Mom.
*Speaking of the scabs on the tops of Oscar's feet, he keeps poking them and saying, "I see boo-boo. Boo-boo hurt! Boo-boo hurt!" I can't seem to make him understand that the reason they hurt is because he is poking at them.
*So, I took some whole wheat hamburger buns out of the freezer for dinner and left them on the counter to thaw. We had these random fruit flies or something flying around and they somehow worked their way into the bag with the hamburger buns. So gross.
*My pantry smells like onions, leading me to believe that there is an errant onion lurking in there somewhere. Let the hunt begin.
*I'm really getting tired of Oscar dancing in the dog water.
*I put the boys in matching guitar outfits today and Oscar loved it. He was so thrilled that both he and Miles where wearing guitars. Clearly I should dress them alike more often.
*Oscar's guitar outfit didn't last long re: jumping in dog water dish.
*Get this: I just retrieved Oscar from his nap and I found him in his crib BARE ASS NAKED. Not a stitch of clothing or diaper on the boy. He's never done this before. Nelson and I have been trying to teach him how to undress himself (part of the potty training) and I guess it took. And, I think he did it before he fell asleep because his diaper was bone dry and he had pressure marks from his blankets on his body. So, he just wanted to sleep naked? Of course, he peed the crib. And I'm guessing he was lying on top of his discarded clothing because they were covered in pee as well, along with his sheet and several of his blankets. Oscar is now on outfit number three for the day. This would be why I do eight loads of laundry a week.
*Get this: we've been ant-free for a month. So long, suckas!
*Nelson has been particularly awesome lately. Not like suspiciously-bringing-me-flowers-awesome, but being-helpful-and-supportive-awesome. And funny, which is one of my favorite things about him. I mean, I annoy easily and he hasn't been annoying me like AT ALL. I'm not sure what is going on here, but I like it.
*Do you know how if you leave your wet clothes in the wash machine overnight the smell all funky and mildewed the next day? And how sometimes even washing them again doesn't fully get rid of the smell, especially if the laundry has been sitting for like two or three nights? (I = Awesome Housekeeper) Well, if you run a soak/prewash cycle with one cup of ammonia and 1/2 your usual detergent the smell will be gone. Really.
