When someone writes an email to a generic support address starting with “Dear Sirs” 😒

Hank is hanging with his nanny for the first time and was not bothered that Alex and I just like, walked out of the room and left him with her.

We may have entered the “surprise mom with a bite on the leg” phase and I am not into it!!!

there is no way I am old enough to hire a nanny

I just want to stick my head in a big pool of water and swish it around until all the gunk comes out of my brain.

I am here to accept my mother of the year award for making my child pancakes at 4am.

feelin' GOOD 

I met up with a potential mom friend at the park, went grocery shopping, took a 3 hour nap, and Alex took Hank to his parents for the afternoon so I could catch up on work.

I'm filling out the application to join the local mothers club and I need to answer the question "what are your interests and hobbies" and I do not know how to answer that.

munching on peas picked only moments ago, sitting on the swing, sharing a seltzer, singing songs about trains as the storm rolls in

The don’t look at my butt bit is still going strong though. Just thought I’d mix things up.

Show thread

I’ve started a new bit where I repeatedly tell my mother to meet me on the roof when she asks if I need anything.

Hanks doin laps around the downstairs yelling “silly willy” and laughing hysterically. Where does this energy come from???

She said, 11 minutes before reading aloud “everyone poops” by taro gomi six times.

I am not available to read to you right now. You can either play quietly with your truck or go to sleep. Please put the book back on the bookshelf. It is still night time. We should be sleeping.

When we go to the park it’s either empty, except for one moody teen on the swing or full of big kids who yell and run real fast.

Show thread

I need to either convince Hank to sleep until 8am, find other kids who wake up before 6am/nap around 10am, or become friends with a parent of a kid who doesn’t nap anymore.
