One Exhausting Friday!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:11 am by chasingtoddlermom

I woke up this morning and decided it was time to do something different. I was tempted to be lazy by the considerable pain in my inner thighs, thanks to a ride on the hip adductor. But I’ve just about had it with winter and staying indoors. So we went to the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. Little Ro’ always has a fantastic time and typically gets completely exhausted (a very important part of my plan). My Fridays are hectic with work, so I rely on a marathon nap and a little Nanny McPhee to get me through. LR had a ball at the Treehouse and particularly loved driving the fire engine today.

They have also added a mini Oval Office since our last visit. Little Ro’ wasn’t very presidential, though. He just wanted to knock down George W and climb all over the desk. But it was pretty cute.

After we finished at the Treehouse, I stuffed him full of Arby’s (and yes, I had curly fries–I’ve had fries twice this week–ugh!). And went home for his nap. I was naively hopeful when LR was silent for the first 15 minutes or so. But then he talked, sang, and went on and on for 2 hours! I kept hearing “5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10–ready, set, GO!!!” Give me kudos for letting him hang out in bed for 2 hours, though. When I finally broke down and went in to get him, I couldn’t believe what I found. There he was, sitting in his bed without a stitch of clothing on!  He had stripped EVERYTHING–including his socks and diaper, tossed everything out of his bed, and peed EVERYWHERE.  His bed was soaked and the carpet was wet.  This was a new low in parenting, but somehow I kept my cool.  Just one more load of laundry, I guess!

I think I’m glad that my Friday is finally over!  My poor DH is out camping in the cold with the scouts tonight.  I’m glad to be curled up in my warm bed with my laptop and a movie!

    Oh my gosh Carrie – I would have died! I could never have imagined how much laundry parenting entails.

    Yes, lemare, rewarding…only…I feel like I keep getting the boobie prize?? What’s the deal with that?
    I’d like to think that I’m single handedly keeping Tide in business.
