So just as I'm about to have another baby, Max has decided to protest everything. The protest begins in the morning, were we average about 2 hrs to get dressed, from the time I try to change a diaper to the final socks and shoes. Today I began the dressing game at 7:30 am. I had to cajole him with going down to the laundry room.
Me: "Max do you want to go to the basement"
Max: eyes light up, "Basement"
Me: "Then we need to put on pants"
Me: "OK no basement"
But it worked he got dressed and I was productive, I actually made 4 trips to load 4 washing machines. Max's babysitter showed up at 9:00, he tortured her some and then kindly allowed me to put on his pants and shoes.
Yesterday after picking him up from school, he thrashed and screamed his way out of the stroller. I got pitying "that poor pregnant lady" looks, as I carried him over my shoulder with one arm, and with the other arm, unsuccessfully navigated the stroller. I was afraid to put him down on the sidewalk because sometimes he likes to throw himself backwards, and I had just read a story about child concussions on the rise. A construction worker yelled across the street, "want me to hold him for you?"
I was tempted to hand him over. Believe me. Finally, Max saw a garbage truck and forgot to cry. I was able to put him in his stroller, where, praise the lord, he fell asleep. But when we got home and I tried to take him out of his stroller, another temper tantrum ensued. I managed to set up a little lunch buffet for him and after an hour, of screaming/whimpering/demanding, he smiled, sat down in the chair and ate. The rest of the day was relatively a breeze, with one minor tantrum at dinner, he wanted oatmeal, not chicken soup. Max won.
I was talking about having an "affair" with a friend of mine. No, no, I don't want to have an affair, I was wondering who the hell has time to have an affair? Honestly if I had the choice between a steamy mid morning romp, and choosing photos for my long overdue wedding album, I'd go with the latter. I have so many errands to do, an affair would just seem so annoying.
And finally some good reality TV is back in my life, "Bethanny Ever After?" First of all, I can't believe how skinny she is...it's UNBELIEVABLE. I'm not saying its good, just wow. Also, how much do we love Jason Hoppy? Is he not the nicest, most down to earth guy? I am watching The Real Housewives of Miami...the jury is still out, not sure if I like it. But no matter I'll always watch "Watch What Happen's Live".
J'adore Andy Cohen. And on second thought, I'd ditch organizing my wedding album for a mid afternoon cocktail with Andy.
