Cereal Part II
so i don't think many of you were around when i posted the first cereal incident.
|September 9 2010|
moses was 16 months. i don't know why or how i didn't actually write anything other than the fact that moses had a cereal party. i'm 100% i was busy, distracted, or LIKE TODAY passed out in bed.
i passed out a few times this morning, in and out of sleep moses finally got bored of watching videos of himself on my phone, so he peaced out into the living room. i guess. i have no idea actually. by the time i finally wake up and decide the house is too quiet for me to fall back asleep, i pop in my contacts and quietly head out to listen for familiar sounds of activity. there is no screaming, yelling, crying, or even laughing... CRINKLE CRINKLE CRINKLE CRINKLE oh god it's fucking cereal.
i grab the video camera. it is out of batteries. i grab the regular camera. and open the door.
merry christmas & happy new year!
so many questions racing through my mind!
WHY DID YOU DO THIS?
HOW DID YOU DO THIS?
HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE CRIB?
WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST EAT THEM?
DID YOU CONSIDER I MIGHT HAVE A HEART ATTACK?
DID YOU CONSIDER HAVING A TIME OUT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?
i wasn't mad. i knew before opening the door, that i was not going to like what was going on. i'm not surprised, but at the same time i am a little surprised. i shouldn't be surprised. i just knew, that no matter how bad it was, it would be photo worthy and a great memory to look back on.
after we finally cleaned the floor, i had forgotten to clean the bed until of course chloe's nap time.
you are wondering... WTF REALLY?!!!!!!!
i did actually ask moses "how are we going clean all of this up?!!!!"
"with my bulldozer"
like he fucking all had it planned out from the beginning and as if there were any other method
and that's what we did, i kid you not. you would not believe that this bulldozer actually did an amazing job. it very easily rolled and gathered the Rice Crispies into piles which we then scooped up with nesting cups and poured it into the box. this took a while. we couldn't get everything, so i waited until after running errands to do the vacuuming. it was at that point that i got chloe ready and realized i forgot the stupid crib!
moses has no shame. he actually left while i was in the room bulldozing christmas Rice Crispies to sneak his way into the PARENT ONLY TOY BOX, pull out an unopen toy from Christmas, tear off the box, and start playing with it.
of course, i figured that was the perfect opportunity to give chloe her little gift i bought from Walmart the other night. i couldn't resist, i am so weak. when you find out what your little girl finally really likes, it is hard to not want to buy EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT. it is VERY BAD.
also note the fact that she is wearing maryjanes first thing in the morning. her call.
i put her in her warm, waterproof, practical Fitzsimmons to go out, and she ran to her room and fetched these mofos and shook them at me. WHO IS THIS CHILD?
CHLOE & I ATE OUR FIRST SALAD TOGETHER!
(moses had the sandwich version)
i had another really great day with the kids. moses was being such an angel today! yes he still bothered chloe here and there, but he was so well-mannered, so helpful cleaning up, and just very pleasant to be around in general. during chloe's nap, i gave him his first colouring contest! actually it' the first thing he has ever had to colour in, having only been given blank sheets. it was so exciting to see where his skill level is at having never done it before.
MMMM!!!!! also on the subject of moses being an angel, he was so incredibly darling the other morning! we were in bed snuggling and he wanted to do nose rubs. he kept counting them as he gave them to me. he counted 10 of them and demanded i rub his nose back 10 times. and once i got to ten he told me i forgot 11 and 12.
i am not pregnant
