I mean really, what is it with my kid and ointments? Or the better question is why is it my hubby who tells me 8 HOURS LATER about the fact that my kid got into ointments and smeared it in the baby’s room. Sheesh. I realized as I was silently cursing the makers of Neosporin for making something so amazingly greasy and impossible to get off, that my little one starts school in less than a week. Now, I have been mentioning it to Nana (who I am sure loves it when I do that) and J (who I am sure loves it when I do that) for a bit. But I just realized that someone else (Miss Colleen, for those who want to know) will be seeing my babe grin during the day and probably won’t be sending me pics of his face on an hourly basis. I wonder if there is a text message upgrade package for pyscho moms like me?
I also realized the breakneck speed from which I will have to travel to get both my kids picked up by 6. And unlike Nana’s house, they probably won’t have dinner ready for us. Dang. Another hitch in the giddyup. I will figure it out I am sure. J has drop off duty so he will have more of a leisurely pace at which to dump these kiddos off. Lucky dog.
As for the kiddos….mildly entertaining….even the one that drools has some entertainment factor. The grin is the best. L’s grin is nothing to shy from either, but his typically comes from a place of “I just spread Neosporin all over a room that isn’t mine’. Grrrr. M is getting big. Fast. Too Fast. He is wanting to sit up all the time and feels as though his fist is a 7 course dinner. L, as one of his teachers told me– is so talkative and has such a good vocabulary. Probably code for ‘my lord your kid won’t stay quiet’. So in honor of that…L’s list of sayings….
1. ‘Momma, iz hot in here” (feels as though Nelly is talking to me from the backseat)
2. Keen me? (me clean? yes please…here’s the bleach. 🙂 )
3. “Teo seepin’? Shhh momma. Teo seepin'” Typically in a loud whisper
4. “keys, momma? Me go work?” (like a dagger in my heart, kiddo)
5. ”ucas eenez’ is his name. we also deciphered ‘icky ‘ouse, as well as ‘iggerpooh’
6. ‘hey mamacita’ -thank you daddy.
Both boys are pretty entertaining…outside of ointments..and that goes for all uses of the ointments, decorative and functional.
I am pretty sure the definition of decorative ointments is one for my scrapbook. Nice!
