It's my early day on Wednesdays, so I was looking forward to coming home to hang out with Parker.
Why wasn't I looking forward to hanging out with Thane? He's gone all night :( I probably won't see him until at least June of 2015. He's got a lot on his plate and I totally appreciate all the hard work he is putting into our dreams coming true. :)
Moving on. P and I had dinner together and I was beyond anxious to go somewhere. I couldn't sit inside for the next 3 hours. I had to do something besides pack! I decided we would walk to the park.
Walking with a 1 year old to the park is an experience in itself. I took the stroller because I knew he wouldn't walk back..and 30 lbs is a lot to carry uphill for 3 blocks. We stopped to look and dandelions, play with a for sale sign, look at car rims, walk up random people's driveways. I love my kid. At one point during our walk, I'm running up a driveway to stop him from pulling someones plant from a planter...and then the stroller rolls into the road.
I bet I could have given someone a heart attack. I panicked. because well...those things are expensive!
We finally make it to the park and it's packed. I didn't want to go because there were so many people there but I looked at P who looked SO excited, he looked back at me and said, "YA!" I realized I can't hold him back just because I didn't want to hang out with 10 of my neighbors kids. So I sucked it up and he had an awesome time. :)
As we were playing I noticed how much of a hot mess my child was. Chocolate frosting on his shirt, little bits of ketchup still on his face, chocolate on his neck. Can you say mom of the year?
Yup...leaving for a bath.
Fast forward to bath time. P is standing in the tub scream talking at me. Nothing new here. Then he squats down and keeps playing. I look at him joking...."Parker Pants are you pooping?"
I just laughed and handed him a toy....he reached for it and then stopped mid-air.
Literally. All of a sudden I look and there are rabbit turds....everywhere.
Come on kid!
I try to get him out and he is about to grab a nugget. Luckily I'm faster.
So now, I have a naked kid prancing around my bathroom, gabbing happily, and all I can picture is him peeing on the cabinets. The cabinets hat are only ours for like 3 more weeks. He is too busy playing with absolutely everything in the drawer to have time to stop and pee so I am quickly trying to clean the tub.
He then runs to the kitchen. Then back in the bathroom. I quickly look on the kitchen floor...no poop. Thank god. I reach for him and he books it back into the kitchen....
and steps in poop.
Tonight....being a single mom really sucked.
On a brighter note. My butt fit down the slide tonight.
