Why must he be selfish?

Little X has pneumonia. I asked him why he was being selfish? Why didn't he let me get sick instead? I have never felt so worthless. I can't do anything for him, but lay here cursing at the ceiling. I had so much more to say, but I can't seem to focus.

Not so typical day.

Sometimes it is fun being a parent. Sometimes. This was one of these days. X had been in a good mood all day. We were at my parents' house and decided to sleep for about 4 hours. If x got any of my genes, it would be my laziness. After we awoke from our siesta, I jumped on my pad and hit the camera app. I was able to catch X trying to eat my toe. He knows how to get on my good side. With that simple smile he is automatically own my good side. I should describe the pain of my toe being bitten as painful as catching your hand between two 45 pound weights at the gym. He really went hard on my foot.

I also want to express that he is mobile. This boy goes zero to sixty in 3 hours. He is just learning to crawl. I was able to catch him looking in his bag and finding his formula. I wasn't able to catch him falling back as I panicked and tried catching him. Luckily my iPad fell on carpet.

All in all these days come by once in a while. Usually the days are filled with dirty diapers and crying spells. It's what makes a family, a family.

Pineapple smoothie

It has been a year since I joined this site. I decided it is time for a new start. Here I am a year later. I don't remember what it is like to not be tired anymore. My kid is the biggest pain in my ass as he is the biggest joy in my life. Do I feel guilty pawning him onto my parents while I sit he wasting time online? Would you not want some quiet time after spending 9 months changing poop filled diapers and losing sleep simply because your kid wants to stay up? I am often asked about my kid. If you know me I simply answer, "he's doing well. He is very good at his job, which involves driving me crazy." Then I get the generic "you poor thing." My answers are never meant to get any sympathy or pity. I simply answer the question to the best of my ability. I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but I can't imagine life without little X.
