He is in a fantastic mood today! And there is something about a happy baby that makes all seem right with the world.
Dull? What the HELL does that mean? It means no infection. No quick antibiotic fix. It just requires having Mommy cater to every whim and sleep in the child's bed all night while she tosses and turns and cries and moans and holds her ear and doesn't fall asleep for more than 5 minutes at a time until 4 mother-flappin' a.m. Mommy does not take to this kindly after returning from her first girls' night out in.....years. (Where, coincidentally, Mommy totally rocked Bette Davis Eyes). It means Mommy is going to lose her freaking mind.
John just left for a four day trip. So, you can take a gander at my state of mind today. Cheery! Happy! Sunny! Wanting to jump off the nearest bridge!
(Okay. Not really. But I'd love to crawl under the nearest bridge--alone--with a sleeping bag.)
I didn't want to write about all that. What I did want to write about was Becca's fun day yesterday. John took her and one of her friends to see the Sleeping Beauty movie playing at a library in Baltimore. They had a ball wearing matching dresses and running wild along busy streets (You can tell Mama wasn't in charge at this point! Mama might have hyperventilated a little when she saw these photos. But Mama was very pleased that Daddy actually took the camera and took pictures, so she kept her mouth shut). They had a ball plugging their noses when they smelled the stench coming up from steam vents. We gotta get these suburbanized kids out more.Becca was so excited to go see Sleeping Beauty with her friend. I was so excited to have a few hours to take a shower and clean the house! (It's the little things...)
And, in other news, Andrew's first tooth popped through overnight.
