How to loose your earring in the bog, get humped in the library and other frustrating things..

I'm tired... The whole "no nap" thing worked like a charm on the first try - no nap on Sunday and he didn't wake until 7:30am on Monday. So, no nap again on Monday and this morning? He wakes up sometime between 5-5:30am.. FFS. What's going on!? Why aren't children quantifiable... ugh. My next guess is teething.. beyond that I'm not sure. He's not too hot or cold. Goodness knows.

A few joyous gems from the last two days:

It's cold and windy so I say to Ethan "Why don't you wear your hat? It's cold and very windy!". "NO!" Shouts Ethan. "Why?" says I. He then proceeds to sing "I don't like it, I don't like it, don't like IT, don't like IT" etc. etc. to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle. At least he refuses in an interesting manner..

We went to story time at the library yesterday. We arrived late (as per). All the children were sitting on the floor quietly listening to the story. There was no noise and no moving around. Within two minutes of our arrival Ethan was climbing the book shelves and he had persuaded 4 children to join him. The librarians had lost control of their audience. Ethan then announced "Let's running in library!" I grab him.. Thankfully the next story being read is an Elmer book- he loves Elmer so that catches his attention for a bit. He loudly tells everyone that you must be gentle with Elephants and then comes up behind me and proceeds to hump my back in front of everyone. Ugh.

Ethan fell asleep in his buggy this afternoon (let's see what that does to his early wake ups!) and when he woke he was beside himself. It took 45 minutes to calm him down. At one point he attacked me in some public loos.. he tore my earring off and it ENDED UP DOWN THE LOO!!! Fishing it out was soooo nice. Reminds me of the time I accidentally flushed my glasses down the loo..

I'd better go... I'm pretty sure it must be tea time because he's eating his toenails right now... the sound! *blugh*


  1. Ha ha!!!!! Crazy days. The dry humping bit made me laugh out loud ;)

  2. Glad it put a smile on your face!! :)

  3. Ethan sounds like a real live wire. I love the idea of anarchy in the library. Very funny.

  4. He really is.. Even more so now there aren't any naps anymore!!


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
