We've just been busy.
In keeping with my "be a little better" motto for 2009, I have been spending my days rolling on the floor with my little boy, becoming a professional lego builder, collecting rocks at the park, and giving many a horsey ride. (those are exhausting!) And doing all things "mommy."
There haven't been many of these lately....
(on a side note.....Yes, Miles is sleeping on the dog bed. That's what happens when Mom is sooo tired she accidentally falls asleep on the couch, completely missing a certain someone's naptime. So, the equally tired little dude falls asleep the only place he can.) yeah....just call me
Mother of the Year!
And the lack of naps has done a number on my little boy. Last week, I kissed my Smiley Miley goodnight. And the next morning, I woke up with a "whiney Miley" instead. I AM NOT KIDDING! Who knew the terrible twos actually started at 15 months?
And ofcourse....This doesn't help....
There are 6 new teeth on the way. Yes. Six. 2 bottom incisors, 2 top molars, and 2 bottom molars. Poor Guy.
Oh....and he's learned how to do this...
Really. Go ahead and ask him to eat his lunch. Or help put the toys away. Or sit down in the tub. I dare you. THEN....try to keep yourself from laughing out loud when he wiggles that little pink tongue in your direction. I DOUBLE dare you.
There is one thing, I have discovered, that will keep the smile on this little boys face.
Just our little neighborhood park. Nothin Fancy. But he would spend all day there if I would let him.
And what, do you ask yourselves, happens when I say it's time to leave????
Wanna see for yourself? Just scroll down to see the video. Atleast the first 10 seconds of it. That's all I could get before he tried to tip the stroller over while he was buckled in it.
I am hoping his new found attitude will subside at least a little when all the teeth are in, and he is feeling a little better.
If not....this is going to be a VERY LONG couple of years!
