A few things I could live without...

Tonight as I changed Aidan's 3rd poopy (& super stinky) diaper in 15 minutes, a few things crossed my mind. There are a several things in my life that if they never happened again I really wouldn't mind. You can see where this is going...

So here are just a few "I could live withouts" at the top of my list, in no particular order:

{Toilet Attachment} If I never again had to get Aidan and his wet, germ ridden hands out of the toilet I wouldn't complain one bit.

{Dishwasher Magnet} If you ever wonder why my dishes are rarely done consistently, its because I can only do them when a certain baby is sleeping. Period.


{Carseat Cryer} This is guranteed. Put baby in carseat. Try to distract. Fight. Tears. Screaming. Finally its over. Sometimes my "day out" will revolve around how many times I have to deal with the previously mentioned senario.

{High Chair Challenge} Since the buckles don't keep him down, I may try bungees. Now you know why sometimes I just leave food under his chair.


{The Diaper Derby}
The battle of wills. All I need is 6.7 seconds flat to get the job done. But the 29 inch 21 pound contender seems to prefer a full & often poopy diaper. My best move: The sit on the baby backwards to hold him down.

{The Stairs} Any suggestions? I have a gate, but the opening and shutting is a total pain.

{The lack of brotherly love} Self-explanitory.


So as to not sound like a total complainer--I have to say that I LOVE being a mom. It has been an aquired taste for me, but one I wouldn't trade for the world.

And on that note...I had to post a few more pictures from Aidan's birthday. Man I love this these little guys.






And I'm off to eat some Ghiradelli's and watch 17 Again. My date for the night:

AMEN, sister! But I do have a suggestion for the stairs. We have stairs in this townhouse and no way to put up a gate that the girls could successfully navigate. Solution: Ppen the pack & play and use it to block the stairs. It's too heavy for him to move, but the rest of us can pull a corner back to get by. I also use it for containment if I'm loading the dishwasher, come to think of it. It'll solve 2 problems at the same time!

Don't use a gate is what I think works best. My kids learned how to climb up and down the stairs at a early age because I have never used a gate. You could show him how to climb up and down ans practice or just make sure your with him when he tries.
