For really good reasons (like, I have a room at BlogHer to pay for and I need to buy pants thanks to the “Summer Spread” and my laptop is still broken) Joshua and I aren’t leaving the house much these days.
Because when we leave the house we spend money.
On stupid things like food he won’t eat and things I don’t REALLY need. Like stationery. Or $5 coffees.
So we’re mostly staying at home because it’s a billion degrees outside so playgrounds are out. And we are going NUTS.
NUTS, I say.
We got out yesterday and went for an in-home play date with a friend and that was a welcomed reprieve from being trapped at home.
This morning? He amused himself by unrolling the toilet paper from the stand in the bathroom and flipping the lights on and off because he can reach them. And then he ran back and forth from room to room going “AHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!” and waving his hands in the air like he was on the run from a hairy gorilla monster. Or me.
I? Almost joined in. Because I was kind of losing my mind.
And then naptime got here and I thought “Ahhh, sweet relief.” And it was.
And then he woke up and he was all “AAAAAAAAHHHHHHWAAAAAHHHHWANTICENOWWAAAAAAHHH” freaking out until his Daddy got home. And then? Joshua amused himself by spinning in circles until he got so dizzy he couldn’t stand up straight. And he just fell over and laughed.
Again? I almost joined in with him. Because WHY NOT?
We need a new plan. STAT.
But for now I am going to go
drown douse my crazy in wine and Weeds. There may or may not be cookies.
