HUMP DAY, GRUMP DAY…

we started today off on the wrong foot. silly monkey woke up in a terrible mood, crying big tears. why? he dropped his REMOTE on the GROUND and couldn’t get his little arms down far enough to the FLOOR to pick it up!! go, go gadget arms – goodness gracious, i think i might rip all my hair out. then…

we get dressed. well, we try to get dressed. silly monkey REFUSES to let go of the REMOTE so i can get his arms thru the holes, so he throws his head back, practically flying off the changing table. i finally WRESTLE his arms in the holes, get his poopy booty wiped clean, WRANGLE his pants up & buttoned, and slide his socks on. now it’s time for breakfast…

or none. silly monkey is adamant about NOT using the sippy cup. darn it! this whole phasing the bottle out is not happening! he takes one sip, bites the spout, then THROWS the bottle on the floor. so, we try oatmeal. oh, oatmeal looks so pretty on my WORK clothes!!! he’s wailing in between tiny bites b/c he wants his REMOTE back. JUST EAT! EAT! we get thru the oatmeal and i dump a bunch of cheerios on his tray. now he’s smiling. what?! all it takes is cheerios?! so not fair. note to self: buy LIFETIME supply of cheerios ASAP. alright, breakfast is over…

we get shoes on. silly monkey kicks one off. we get the other shoe on. he kicks the other off. i finally get both shoes on, tied tightly, they are ON to STAY!! we are out the door…

it’s raining. ugh. i flip open the umbrella. silly monkey is enamoured. he grabs the handle and flings it out of my hand. nice. i pick it up, but we’re both already all wet. super nice. i strap him in the car & all is well – AFTER i give him back his REMOTE. we arrive at mom/michelle’s, morning over…

but then i have to go to work. ugh. hump day, grump day. when is it tomorrow?

so help me. how do i get silly monkey off the bottle? if i get that accomplished, i’ll feel super good about myself after such a rotten morning.
