Happy Tuesday and Happy Randomness! You know how much I like a good random string of thoughts. So without further ado… Random Tuesday Thoughts…
I got paid a pretty awesome-TASTIC compliment last night. My Dad said “I wish I had been half the Dad to you kids that you are a Mom to Monkey.”
How awesome is that?!?!
It made me feel really great to get such a wonderful compliment from my parent about my parenting skills. Woot Woot!
This was the conversation that went on in my bed at just before 2 am this morning.
Hubby: The moon will show you how.
Me waking up out of a dead sleep: Huh? What’s wrong hon? What’d you say?
Hubby: The MOON will show you how!
Me: Ummm… Are you talking in your sleep?
Hubby yelling: THE MOON WILL SHOW YOU HOW!!
Me confused: The MOON?
Hubby annoyed: Yes, the MOON. That thing in the sky!?
Me: Oh brother. *eyeroll*
Another random outburst from Hubby’s sleeping mind in the wee hours of the night. This happens often and he never remembers. Great fun.
Yesterday we had our ultrasound. It didn’t go great. There was no heartbeat, and I am only measuring at 5 weeks and 5 days. Not great news folks. Another ultrasound next Tuesday to see if we made any changes. It just seems that this keeps dragging on and on and on. At this point I just need to know. It is very frustrating to not know.
Having the TV back is WONNN-ONNN-ONNDERFUL!!! We are going to try and limit our time, but with fall shows coming back (woohooo!) I am anxiously awaiting some of my fav’s. It was a great learning experience for us, and we will for sure do turn off the TV week in May, but having it back (especially since we are getting MORE rain *gag*) it helps keep me sane. And it helps keep Monkey sane. He gets cabin fever.
It is mean that I call my son Freddy Krueger because he refuses to let me cut his finger nails?? I’m going to have to get them registered if he won’t let me cut them soon…
“Yes I am here to register my son’s toenails as deadly weapons.” Hah!
Every time I try to cut them he starts screaming and wiggling like I am going to cut his hand off. I am holding BABY clippers y’all!! Not a chainsaw!! It’s quite a show. *eyeroll*
Speaking of my little mountain climber, yesterday morning he decided to climb out of his crib for the first time. Freaked him out! Not nearly as much as it scared me, I’m sure. But he was fine, just a little shaken up.
So last night, Hubby converted his crib to a toddler bed and we baby proofed every square inch of his room. Lucky for us he sleeps with the door closed and can’t turn door knobs yet. That should be fun when that occurs.
So I put some toys in there in hopes of getting him to stay quiet for just an extra few minutes as to afford Mommy a few extra winks. Which actually worked out ok for about 30 minutes this morning. It would have worked better though, if I didn’t have Mommy Radar. You know… the radar that makes me shoot out of a complete sleep as soon as his breathing changes on the monitor? Yeah so I was awake but at least able to lie in bed and pretend to sleep for another 30 minutes this morning.
His room looks pretty good though, don’t you think?
And yes that is a baby gate in the window to keep him away from the blinds. Can’t afford to replace the blinds, but can’t afford to have him swinging from them or hanging himself on them either. So his room is 100% baby proof now!! 🙂
Ok, I will stop with the random craziness! 🙂
Have a great day y’all!!
