NaNight Stupid


By 11:30 this morning I was ready to sell some children, cheap. 

What it is about 3 year olds that immediately makes you feel like banging your head against the wall? There are only so many times I can ask nicely, correct even more nicely, and gently reprove with my best motherly methods before I run out of ideas and do things like throw him on his bed and slam the door on my way out. THIS IS A HAPPY HOME, LOVE IS FREAKING SPOKEN HERE PEOPLE. 

It's going to be a long winter, isn't it? 

Le poop. 

My bosom friend KK had a wee bebe last week (Cali, my namesake by default but I'll TAKE IT), 3 days later San Diego had a nice blackout which I'm sure was fun for them. Nursing a newborn by candlelight is so much more romantic and pioneerish, we should all do it! Then of course, my widdle boy had a birthday except he is NOT little and we almost got rained out. En serio, it poured about an hour before the party was to start and trust me, taking it inside our little red brick castle of dreams was not an option. But the heavens did part and the epic Utah County traffic did subside and we had ourselves a birthday party on Friday night. 

Do I still get to claim "I just had a baby" now that he's one? Does that work as a valid excuse? 

Why am I still awake, it's 12 freaking 29 in the morning? 

Clearly I should not have access to the internets past 10.

I have a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old right now. Let me tell you. The three is killing me but the four is downright delightful.

Tell it like it is Sista. 3 year olds are naughty, adorable and naughty. Terrible Three's not two's. That's my word and I'm sticking to it.
