7:50 a.m.: First thing this morning, Jackson finds a box of "Fruit by the Foot" in his daddy's open suitcase in our bedroom. Hubs has been packing for his India trip. Jackson desperately wants us to give him these "strawberries" (?) as soon as possible. Right now, please. He runs to his high chair and puts the box on the tray.
8:00 a.m.: Not wanting to rob Curtis of even one of his precious India-snacks, I don't give in to Tachi's demands. He goes on the potty and I decide to give him one of my strawberry flavored Sour Punch Bites as a reward. Jackson, who hasn't had breakfast yet, asks for more strawberry candies...on a plate please.
9:00 a.m.: Tachi poops in his new underwear for the third time in two days. It doesn't phase him one bit. P.G. gags but doesn't surrender this morning's toast. She's got skills.
11:45 a.m.: Curtis brings home Chick-fil-a for lunch which, oddly enough, I don't enjoy that much when I'm expecting. Hubs and Tachi eat Chick-fil-a quite a bit when I'm not around. Curtis gives Jackson his chicken nuggets whole and I realize he NEVER cuts them up. This goes against everything I believe in as a parent. Tachi doesn't choke. Tachi's got skills too. Not that I trust them.
1:20 p.m.: Jackson goes down for a nap and Curt leaves for the airport. There are no tears.
3:00 p.m.: Tachi wakes up 30 minutes early from his nap and I miss getting my bath. Blast!
4:00 p.m.: Tachi does not understand that it's mommy's turn for a bath. He is very unhappy about it. He just had a bath before his nap, but there's no reasoning with him. Then he puts some of his Cheerios down on the bath mat and he has a complete and utter meltdown when I tell him not to eat them. (Note to self - wash the bath mats.) When I explain that the mat is dirty because Daddy's feet are on it all the time, he cries for his Daddy. Daddy has only been gone for three hours. (Another note to self - try not to talk about Daddy.)
Tonight: We're going to Bibby's house to mooch some dinner, give me a reason to get out of my sweats, and give Tachi a change of scenery.
Tomorrow: Bonny, one of my college roomies, is coming to stay with me with her two boys. Yeah!
