J asked for eggs, and he ate them. With fruit, no less.
The carpet for the basement was delivered, not only on time, but almost at the start of the window.
J hung out on the back of the couch watching me clean up dishes. And while I don’t love this, I preferred this to him playing in the dishwasher making me twitchy.
Then came the shower… Still day going smoothly. For the third consistent time, J got out of the shower played a few minutes then saying “Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!” all while lifting the lid on the toilet. Sure enough, the big boy pottied on the potty. (Haven’t managed #2 since his early success, but #1 seems to be going well – if he is diaper less)
After which, we got his diaper on, and washed our hands. (He’s big on washing his hands) And he went back to playing while I finished getting ready. Considering he is trapped in the master bath, there really isn’t a whole lot to play with. So he settled on the magazine rack. It’s metal & heavy, but he was happy so I didn’t sweat it.
<enter bad mommy moment>
No blood… “J you have to be careful. Do you want mommy to kiss it all better?”
Back to drying my hair. When I was done, I realized J was really crying. Not his fake cry, but a real pain cry. And there was blood gushing out of his foot.
So I immediately put peroxide on it. (Note to self: Dr told me not to do this, just use soap & water) And band-aided it. Got dressed quickly, then checked his toe. Added another band-aide. Took him into the kitchen to call Mr. M for advice on whether or not I should call the Dr. (Another note to self: When in doubt, just call the Dr).
The Dr did want to see him. Luckily or not, depending on how you look at it… He didn’t need stitches, as he’d removed all skin so there was nothing left to stitch. (Is this good news?) The Dr seemed to think this was a good thing. It has to stay covered for 5 days, and taped to his 2nd toe for support. Oh, and the best news… He may lose his toe nail going into summer… Ummm yeah, Mr. M will love that.
And he had a sinus infection. Saved Mr. M a trip on Tuesday.
Needless to say, after all this excitement, and seeing it was past 1 pm and all… We went to lunch at Chili’s, where J was an angel. So I rewarded him with Cold Stone. Even went all out daring to let him have his cotton candy with sprinkles in his car seat as I drove. Yes, I am a
Then we went to the park, where he proved all was good in his world…
