Battle Scars

Now we moms are kind of a different breed. We do the impossible on a daily basis. We manage to catch toddlers as they are falling out of their highchair. We can make dinner while dealing with tantrums. And we sprain our wrists over doing so much laundry. Yes this is my life. I sprained my wrist today folding about 10 loads of laundry. I tried to think of a more heroic story but I knew no one would believe me so it was short-lived. My son has been learning the strangest things. He now dips his cereal in milk. How he learned this, I have no idea. My husband claims to have nothing to do with it, but I have a hard time believing him.

We have pretty much broken in all the christmas toys. It amazes me some of these toys that they come up with and how some of them are just so creepy. He got a elmo doll that eyes light up when it talks. As soon as my husband and I saw this we broke out the perminant marker but unfortunatly it didnt work as well as we'd hope, actually it didnt work at all.

However, I am proud to announce that my son is showing signs of OCD. Just like his mommy. He is so funny and wants things to be perfect and go back in their right spot. Its so funny to watch him put his cup in the cup holder and make it perfect.

The other day my husband was trying to discipline him and I dont know how parents do it sometimes. He tried so hard but its just so difficult to "yell" at a toddler. He just looks up at us with the most innocent face we have to turn around to try and not laugh.

I am weening him off his binkie. He has done really well with it. It stays in the crib and never comes out. So he has it during naps and bed and when it is time to wake up he gives his teddy a hug and throws him in the crib and then puts his binkie in the crib and waves goodbye to them.

Anyway, it has been a month since I have updated so this post is a bit long and scrambled, but here it is.
