He's not a super chatty guy, but man the house is quiet without him. I miss him.
It's funny, really. I lived alone for nearly 10 years before we got married, but now that I'm used to having someone here, the house seems so empty without him. I mean, Robbie's adorable but not the greatest conversationalist.
The trouble with now being able to go out is running into weirdos in the world. Had a very annoying experience with a smelly, dirty, possibly drunk old guy in the grocery store tonight.
Essentially he had personal space issues and just couldn't accept that my son doesn't talk yet. He pushed the issue so much that I ended up explained that he was born 3 months early so while he was almost 1, he was really only 9 months and "NO. He doesn't talk yet!"
This lead to a very pregnant (I would shortly learn she's 8 1/2 months pregnant) woman nearby to ask about a million more questions which lead to her actually complaining about how she's miserable and "can't wait to have this baby."
Rule of thumb- if the woman you're talking to has just explained that her son was born 3 months early and spent those 3 months in the hospital, don't complain about being full term. I have no doubt she's uncomfortable, but I'd have loved to have been so uncomfortable. I simply replied "Yeah, I never go to that point. Good luck with your baby" and moved on as quickly as possible.
Can you believe he's almost 1? Holy shit. How did this happen? His birthday is less than 2 weeks away!
A reminder that any pay it forward donations are due a week from Thursday. (The 28th.) We've received several donations now and I'm having so much fun seeing the stuff and I'm so touched at everyone's generosity. I promise there will be plenty of pictures to reward you.
Speaking of pictures.
Did you need something, Mommy?
Hmm. What does THIS button do?
The latest in baby discipline. A playmat shackle.
