And here's to my first "Hey, it's okay..." post.
--to give your toddler a side of Goldfish with his pancakes for breakfast because it's only 9am on a Wednesday. And inevitably there is bound to be bigger fish to fry as your day progresses.
--to hold off on weaning AG from his paci because he's a bear who gnaws when he teethes. We've discovered that if we don't give him his paci as of late that he gnaws on his wrist and or four fingers like they are a drumstick. So rather than have a raw red arm we opt for a paci as AG cuts his incisors. The goal is to be done with it by his 2nd birthday.
--to let my toddler go to bed around 8:30ish because his parents, the night owls, enjoy the fact that he sleeps till 9 or later most mornings.
--to have apps on your iPhone specifically to entertain your child while you try and enjoy a meal in a restaurant. And hey, without a little help from Peek-a-boo Barn and Peek-a-boo Wild we wouldn't know all our barnyard and safari friends with their corresponding noises.
--to contemplate asking Santa for a "laptop" that's for kids ages 4 and up for your not yet two year old with the slight hope that he might leave yours alone...even if it's just for a little bit and he's really tech savvy.
--to let your child be Buzz Lightyear for Halloween even though you feel it's cliche to go as something trendy and you'd rather do something classic. But Buzz is who he's in to these days and we are going to run with it...at this point it's highly possible we'll be celebrating our 2nd birthday with Buzz. And I'm okay with that. Really. :o)
--that some days it's all you can do to get dinner (from the freezer) on the table because it was one of those days and you weren't able to shower, get out of the house, or put real clothes on that day.
