Today I gave up control. I chose quiet over safety. Today, I let Harrison play with the WII accessories. I know it wasn’t the best decision, but it made the little angel stop whining for a full 10 minutes. And that. Was. Glorious.
He learned to crawl last month, and it has been both a blessing and a curse. He cries a lot less, but I have to actually WATCH him now. I am currently in search of a used play yard, the kind that is like a fence for babies, so I can make full use of my laziness as a mother.
Laziness: 1 Good Mothering: 0
We are going to attempt to visit my parents today because I have forced my mother to come over the past 3 days in a row so it is my turn. I would tell you that she is a saint for this, but when was the last time you heard a saint say, “Again? You want me to come over again? I had sh*t to do Kathy!” So she sacrificed a few hours of her time, but let me know that “I’m not coming to see you, I’m coming for that baby.” Isn’t she a peach?
