1. My 4 year old does not know how to wipe his little derrier on his own yet. This means that whenever he needs to do this, he calls out to me, very loudly, “Help me wipe, please!!” And then when he doesn’t hear me coming or answer, he yells it out again, this time louder, “HELP ME WIIIIIIIIIIPE!” And then, sometimes even a third time….”HELP. ME. WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPE PLEASE!” 9.5 times out of 10 his bowels decide to let loose when I have just finally gotten the baby to sleep. So, being the loving mother that I am, I make him wait long enough for me to get the baby sleepy enough to lay down. By then, his feet have started tingling while he hangs from the seat and he’s now only pathetically whispering,
“help me wipe…please?”
2. Snot, here, there. Everywhere. Snot. (hmmm, this was the same whine I had the last time I whined….anyone have any cool anti-snot lasers?)
3. My 17 month old has turned into a screaming monkey again…(as I blog) that does not sound very good when my ears are all clogged up and my head hurts from clogged sinuses and ‘allergies’.
It’s good to do a reality check in our ‘perfect’ lives. Get the code for the picture here and link back here if you want to join Whiney Wednesday in your blog. Then leave a comment here (even if you don’t have a blog) or on the Erika Marie/simplemama facebook page if that’s easier.
