Am I On Candid Camera?

The same day the baby book incident happened, so did all of these things:

1) closed Caleb's hand in the van door, the crying of both of us ensued
2) dropped ice cream on the front seat of the new car while rescuing Caleb, more crying (I cried because I was tired and hormonal and Caleb cried because I was crying)
3) as I'm changing Caleb's diaper and talking to my sister on the phone, heard Caleb saying, "dirty diaper" as he was wiping his poop-covered hand on the wall behind the changing table
4) cleaned up an entire glass of lemonade Caleb dumped on the living room carpet

all in a day's work for a mommy, right?

I asked Justin to bring home dinner that night because I really couldn't take any more. :-)

...and what's the fascination with kids and the dog's food & water bowls? I can't keep Caleb out of them if the laundry room door is open. He wants to put things in the water (like dog food or himself) or throw dog food everywhere.

This has nothing to do with this post..while I definetely have had those days. But I wanted to tell you that I have now had two c-sections and if you need any advice I am more than happy to share with you. My first experience I had no idea what I was getting into, and the second I thought I did but I also received plenty of advice from other c-sectioned mommies. The best advice? GET UP AND WALK as quickly as you can! Seriously they will want you to wait but tell them "NO!" The first time around it was 24 hours until I walked and this time I was getting ready to go bonkers after about 8.....it helps the healing process begin!

Oh Jenn! =) I am sorry you had the kind of day. No one ever said motherhood was easy, but they neglected to say how HARD it was too. =)

It's a bit after the fact, but I'm sending you cyber-hugs and encouragement! {{{ }}}

The only good news about days like that is you usually have several good days afterwards. I don't know if they are actually better days or if they just seem that way compared to the really bad ones! Here's hoping you have a week full of great days to make up for this one!

Mercy! You're so awesome. I'm sure you were at the end of your rope but now you've documented this so you can have your revenge when he starts dating. ;)
