RTT: Jesus built my hotrod
And in this corner, The UnMom with Random Tuesday Thoughts!
*Miles at his breakfast in a booster seat this morning. Sob, baby growing up, sob!
*Oscar is officially toilet trained. But. Last week, he was in his room for a time out. A time out for kicking his brother. After the requisite two minutes were up, I went retrieve him and he said to me, "I peed in my pants." The bathroom is connected to Oscar's room. There is a potty in there, and a seat topper and stool. He knows how to use all of these things by himself. The only thing he needs help with is pulling up his pants. "Oscar. Why did you pee in your pants? Why didn't you just go into the bathroom?" "I peed my pants because I mad at you, Momma." GASP. The little shit. A "revenge pee," as Sprite's Keeper calls it. Not cool, Oscar. Funny, but not cool.
*Have you heard about this huge Children/Infant Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, Benadryl recall? Check it out and check your medicine cabinets. We had four partially used bottles. What heck, man? And wouldn't you know it my kids both spiked fevers this weekend? Luckily I had a couple of bottles of generic ibuprofen in the house.
*Nebo is still with us. He gets to go out and go to the bathroom and that's it. We are considering the dog run/kennel idea, but the weather and our time has not been permitting.
*Oscar has these two race cars and he refers to them as Jesus's cars. Being that his only reference for word/name Jesus is used as profanity, I pretty sure this is my doing. "Jesus" is my curse of choice while driving. This might explain why I hear Oscar playing with these cars saying, "Jesus, you are going to fast!" and "Jesus, slow down!" and "Jesus, be careful!" I really need to watch my language. That seems to be a theme around here these days.
*Oscar planted his first container garden a few weeks ago. He was excited:
That's all I got. Go over to Keely's for your Tuesday's dose of random.
