I have been on maternity leave for 6 weeks now. My son enjoys having me at home, although some days he makes me pull my hair out, actually most days. My sister has always told me that the "three's" are worse than "two's" and I am thinking she was correct in this. She has four kids, she should know. Since I have brought the baby home, my son has been especially rotten, doing anything he can for attention. And don't get me wrong, it's not that he doesn't get special "mommy" time just for him, because he does. I will elaborate more on instances of his crazy behavior that drives me insane on later dates, when specific examples pop into my head, or as they occur. And maybe his behaviour isn't crazy, maybe it's perfectly developmentally normal for a child his age, although it just drives ME crazy.
It's Halloween tomorrow, and he's been asking to go trick or treating all week. I'm sure it will be a blast, we're going with his cousins and they are all stoked. My daughter has a matching costume, so they will be very cute.
Let's end today with a halloween limerick, it's the end of the day so bear with me...
"There once was a mom with a spoon
that carved a pumpkin to look like a loon
Her son really liked it
Til the neighbor kids smashed it
When they "tricked" by the light of the moon."
Happy Halloween everyone!
