I was walking, naked baby on hip, to the bedroom when a wave of craziness passed over me. I know a couple of moms who have practiced E.C (Elimination Communcation) with their babies. So, I took a detour (not much of a detour in our ONE BEDROOM CONDO!!!!) do you detect a tinge of bitterness and annoyance in my all caps wordage?!
Anyways, I sat her, or really hovered her, over the toilet and said "pssssssssssss" "pssssssss". And guess what she did?? You better believe my genius kid peed in a toilet at 4 months old. That crazy ass method works. Too bad I dont mind diapers enough to do it. It was a fun one time experience, sort of like bungee jumping or tater tot casserole.
Conversation with Avrie during our writing lesson (writing, not handwriting)
Me: The passage Im about to read you is from the book "Little House in the Big Woods". The Ingalls family had to kill their pig in the fall in order to have enough meat to eat in the wintertime. So, Pa had to kill the pig he had raised all year.
A: There are bears?
Me: Yeah, there are bears. Remember they live in the middle of woods.
A: No! So, they are bears?
A: Then...why did you call him Pa?
I laughed so hard I could hardly breathe. I love kids!!!
Steve went to California last Tuesday and is coming home this Friday. Then he leaves again on Tuesday for another 10 days. On a bright note, my house is cleaner, his collection of computer equipment is not strewn all over my dining room table every evening and the tv isnt on constantly from 6pm-10pm every day.
But, we do miss him.
At this point I would love to post random fun pics from the last few months, but if I add photos, Blogger will add them to the top of my post and I have no idea how to get them to this location in my post and frankly right now Im just not in the mood for that kind of annoying ridiculousness.
Im off to get the kids ready for bed and watch Modern Family.
