Tmi Tuesday

You know what’s more fun than getting 3 hours of sleep?
Getting 3 hours of sleep, spending 4 hours in an autoshop, and starting menses in the middle of that with no menstrual products of any kind in sight.

Yay 3 hours of sleep but no really I thought we were done with that phase.

Assholery

-Tonight after our dinner out for jerith’s birthday, I poured Roland a cup of water to drink prior to sleep. He often drinks milk or water in bed, so I was not concerned about this. Then, sometime after story but pre sleep he asked for milk. I explained why there was only water tonight. He cried. Then he asked for water.
He took it, pretended to take a sip, and then threw it all over me, because he wanted milk.
I was so mad I had to leave the room. Needless to say, no drinks for him tonight. Possibly more drinks in the forecast for mama after bedtime from hell is over.
-please tell me this phase is short
- I reserved a book called “Buddhism for the mothers of young children” at the library primarily because it has entire chapters on tools for remaining calm and dealing with anger. Review to follow.
-8 days till I leave for Arizona.

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

And it would still get stuck in my hair…

now THIS is what I’m fucking talking about
EDIT: IT FUNCTIONS AS A FUCKING ORANGE PEELER, AND EVEN A LAMP IF YOU HAVE A STRING AND SOME OIL. SERIOUSLY???

JUST IN CASE YOU APPARENTLY NEED AN EMERGENCY ONE FOR RELIGIOUS SERVICES?

Buying these asap.


YES

Want. So much.

-break time
-I’ve been building a gate for our front yard out of reclaimed wood from the house next door, which is being demolished
-despite many tool glitches and Roland being insanely clingy and unable to follow simple directions today
-just paint and hinges left to do
-also it really bothers me how much my glasses push the margin of my face medially in pictures. They’re messing with my aesthetic.
- but glasses and power tools are much better than contacts and power tools
- I just wanna finish this without dealing with any other people

Wouldn’t this be a blessing? Gender neutral colors and designs all the way to 5T!

Rolly made a friend at the playground today. No joke, the two boys did this for basically half an hour straight. They played together the whole time we were there. Kiddo’s mom and I exchanged numbers so we can meet up with them again.

That's one way to think of it

  • Me: we don't lick the floor.
  • Ro: I'm a doooog! Woof woof

"Oh no! My foot fell off"

— Roland lost a sock, and the distress woke him up.

What’s inside my body? A first guide to the wonders and workings of the human body

My grandparents bought Roland a first book of anatomy which is pretty neat if somewhat inaccurate (it’s been dumbed down too much). It talks about skeletons and stomachs and eyeballs. Pictures are of 90’s kids, but anatomically correct. 

Roland has merged the idea of having a stomach/digestive tract with the very hungry caterpillar, who has a stomach ache after eating it’s smorgasbord of mostly unhealthy foods. This has led to hearing him shout such gems as:

"I HAVE A STOMACH ACHE IN MY PENIS" 

He’s still quite fixated on genitalia in general, as he likely will be for the rest of his life, and is constantly yelling things like:

"MY BUTT IS FOR POOPING FOOD I DONT WANT"

or

"MAMA HAS A ‘GINA BUT IT’S NOT FOR POOPING"

I love his enthusiasm but woah. Maybe we should have waited until he had a bit better volume control.

Six photos I am awesome in, as tagged. I think basically everyone has been tagged, so I leave it to those who haven’t been and want to do it. Honor system tagging.

He woke up at 8

The. Worst.

cal-judi-hart replied to your post: Roland napping in the stroller. Yard s…

Wait…afternoon nap for Ro?

Right? So what is up with that sleep schedule?

Yesterday he napped 1 hour, 2- 3 because we were walking in the stroller and I didn’t realize he’d fallen asleep until too late. He’s pretty unwakeable when he’s actually asleep.

Today, no nap. He fell asleep on the way from the grocery store at 5 pm, slept through getting his clothes changed, new diaper, everything. Will he sleep through the night? will he wake up for the day at 3 am? I don’t know

Basically we’ve learned that 3 hours is too long and no hours is not enough. We keep playing it by ear.
