"Sure, sweetie"

Max was taking a bath tonight and I asked him to do something...wash his body I think...and his response was "Sure, sweetie". Oh, he slays me.

I wasn't laughing this morning when he woke up in that 4 am hour. Some milk kept things quite for another 40 minutes or so when I started hearing "Momma, I want to go poo poo in the POTTY". Or, some various type theme. He can be relentless. I ignored him as long as I could. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and went to check on him. He had is pants and diaper off. Sigh. So, he got freed from the crib, which usually doesn't happen until after 6, but what's a mom supposed to do? No, he didn't go poo. I was trying for stellar mom of the day award and climbed back in bed and told him if he really did poo to let me know so I could wipe his bottom. He came in a few minutes later and told me he couldn't close his eyes anymore and did I want my light on and no he didn't go poo poo. I told him he had three choices 1) going back to his crib 2) climb in bed and cuddle with me or 3) go in the other room and play and that if he turned on my light he was going back to his crib. Smart kid that he is, he chose door number 3 and (mostly) went to play on his own while I listened for problems and dosed until a more decent hour.

Still trying to win stellar mommy of the day award, Max had candy from the Easter basket that his nanny brought for him today and milk for dinner. Hey, I put my foot down after he had 3 small pieces and offered many more healthy options, but was told to "close the fridge door momma. I don't want it." Again, what's a mom to do?

I finally got around to getting new shoes for Max this weekend. His feet are 9.5 now. I'm not sure what is normal, but that just seems so big and grown. I think the last time I bought him sues he was only a 6 or 7. He's been wearing some hand-me-down shoes from a friend recently.

Max has started telling me within minutes of waking up that "No nap today. I don't want a nap today." My response is usually something like, fine, he doesn't have to nap or sleep, but he does need to spend time in his crib during nap time. He's been taking me at my word and not sleeping. This doesn't bother me as much during the week as it does on the weekend. He gets and needs and earlier bedtime these days as a result.

In other news, I'm 16w4d. I'm still spotting on and off. Mostly doing and feeling fine, but tired. I'd like to say that I've been productive, but alas, can't. Really, must make an effort to pay bills soon.
