Monday Mornin' Blues
Sounds like a song title...heck, maybe it is a song title! I wasn't looking forward to doing the Monday morning task of starting one of at least four loads of laundry waiting for me. And I need #3 asleep to get to doing my taxes, so I was trying to sneak a few minutes to blog a couple of pics I'd been wanting to post. I put #3 in his activity seat thingy. It didn't go as well as it usually does. I can generally get 10-15 minutes out of it; but not this morning. I became enthralled watching him try to put the attached toys into his mouth. This is a frustrating phase. He can't hold anything long enough to really "check it out" with his mouth...and the thing he can hold onto won't reach his mouth! What kind of mother am I that I can watch him and take pictures instead of rescuing him? The same kind of mother that types away while he fusses...but hey, I've tried to feed him and the kid won't take a pacifier to go to sleep, so what's a mom to do? I guess neither of us are thrilled with this Monday morning!
