Today, He Said The Word

Today, We Celebrated His First Birthday

July 27, 2019 Today, we celebrated R's first birthday at home with friends and family of my employers. Because the theme was WWF wrestling (inspired by R's hulk-ish size), R was dressed to look like Hulk Hogan with a yellow onesie, red pants, a bandana around his head, and a brown mustache pacifier. Of course… Continue reading Today, We Celebrated His First Birthday

Today, He Made a Dentist Laugh

July 23, 2019 Over the weekend, my employers noticed something that appeared to be an extra tooth growing over another one in R's mouth. R, being only a year old, is growing in his baby teeth, so abnormalities would likely happen at this point in time. They sent me a picture of the supposed tooth,… Continue reading Today, He Made a Dentist Laugh

Today Was Not My Favorite

Today started out great. I actually felt like I got enough sleep and wasn't a zombie on my thirty minute commute to work. For the majority of the morning, things went well -- Baby, R, went down easily and slept for two hours, and A played nicely by himself while I got a lot done around the house. Then...

Today, I Embarrassed Myself

This morning, while changing R's diaper, I noticed the Desitin was a teeny tiny squeeze away from being empty. I couldn't find another tube anywhere, so considering I also needed Swiffer wet pads, I decided we'd take a quick trip to Target before picking A up from preschool. Because the Target we went to is… Continue reading Today, I Embarrassed Myself

WARNING: graphic detail Most Thursday mornings I take my youngest nanny-kid, L, to the library for story time while her brother is at school. She loves to sing and bounce and play with the colorful toys. I love getting a latte at the café before the class starts. Today, both of those things had to… Continue reading Today, She Broke a Record

Today, I Was Put in Time-Out

I was playing with my nanny-kids on the floor when I started shaking my foot like most people who can't sit still do. Unaware of what I was doing, I gently tapped G's leg with my foot in the process. He looked at me, very confused, with one eyebrow raised. "That is not nice. You… Continue reading Today, I Was Put in Time-Out

Today, I was a Unicorn

My oldest nanny-kid woke up from nap before his sister. Instead of taking him downstairs to eat a snack, I decided he and I would just play in the loft while we waited for his sister to wake up. During that time, we found a bunch of stuffed animals that had been left up there from the day before. One of those stuffed animals was...
