Well my days of saying “Oh no, Jp has never done that.” are slowly coming to an end. As he is getting older and testing more boundaries I am finding myself fighting more and more battles. He did it. He got me this week. Took advantage of a moment of weakness and went for it. I was doing dishes in the kitchen while he was having art time at the table. I get carried away cleaning for one minute and BOOM…BAM…WHACK
It’s hitting me. This is it. I am in the thick of it. Motherhood at it’s finest!! Cleaning crayon off my walls, watching The Cat in The Hat three times in one day, because it’s his favorite, kissing boo boo’s and constantly warning him that his daredevil actions could result in a broken face. There may be a bit more to raising children than anyone ever let on!! Oh and potty training…don’t even get me started. I am not a fan, but alas we press on.
Even with all the crazy involved, I am finding that parenting can be fun. So I have a few marks on the wall…it’s just my budding artist practicing. They come off, but these awesome memories are there forever!! Oh, and just know from experience the UP brand eraser sponges work better than a certain bald man’s!!
Hope you all had a safe and Happy Fourth of July!!
