The Busy Bodies
Meet the Busy Bodies.
|Trying to share a yogurt.|
Those two keep this mommy very busy and her feet. Seriously, ever since Moo turned three it’s like she inherited a third stomach. Every five minutes I’m hearing “Mommy, I’m hungry.” And when she’s not eating she’s drinking.
I don’t even know how her poor stomach can hold all the stuff she consumes during the of course of a day. I mean she can do some serious damage on a fully stocked frig and pantry. And instead of being a picky eater, she’s become a picky tv watcher. Yes, already she’s become too cool to watch certain cartoons.
And with JJ heading into toddlerhood in three months, he’s so much busier than he was a few months ago. Not to mention, we’re going through the teething stage. Nothing is safe getting gummed. Whatever he can get his little hands on goes straight to his mouth.
As you can tell from the pic, he has a set of wheels that allows him to get into just any and every thing he wants. He’s like a little speed racer in that thing. If I get up to go into another room to get something, he’s right on my heels. The kitchen is his new favorite hang out spot because he loves slamming the cabinet doors and digging with the trash and recycling cans (gross).
Naptimes are quite a struggle now. I think he feels like he’s missing out on stuff, but he’s not. We’re lucky to get in two naps now. That sucks because it means that I have to do most of my work and hunting for freelance gigs at night when he’s sleeping.
Oh did I mention, he thinks that my laptop is his. Yes, we frequently battle over who’s going to do the typing if I’m trying to use my laptop during the day. I’m thinking that he’ll be getting his own baby laptop for his birthday. Hopefully, that will be enough to appease him.
Who knew I would have two little busy bodies on my hand? I certainly didn’t. I always thought I would have one high maintenance kid and one low maintenance kid. I guess not.
Do you have Busy Bodies? How do they keep you on your toes?
