I am not a table!

on September 7, 2012

After a long morning of chasing the toddler and wrangling the 3 year old, I finally sink into my big arm chair to feed E. We snuggle up and she falls asleep eating. Soon I zone out too. I drift off into a pseudo-sleep and dream of coffee, David Tutera weddings, and massages.

When I come crashing back to reality I look like the junk lady from the Labyrinth.

Ever feel like this?

I now have about 50 assorted toys, an empty juice cup, a used tissue, a sleeping baby, and a stream of drool piled up on my lap.

I’m not sure why, but K thinks I am his personal toy box/table/junk pile. He runs by all the time and just leaves things on my lap. It is one of the great unknown mysteries of the ages- why does mom make a better container than the toy chest that is only a few feet away?

I have a lot of commonly used phrases:

“Put your underwear on!”
“We don’t paint sister.”
“No sir/ma’am. Don’t touch that.”
“Please sit on your bottom.”
“Have you lost your mind?!”
“What are you doing? Are you supposed to be doing that?”
“What would be a good choice right now?”
“If you don’t stop
(insert behavior here), you are going to go take a nap.”

Today it has been, “I am not a table.” This is followed by the immediate loss of whatever he dropped on me.

There is a good size pile of treasures building up on the end table today. Maybe he’ll learn.

    I laughed out loud at that one.

    • Ha. Thanks. I actually did fall asleep on the couch one morning. E was still asleep and K was watching cartoons. I wake up and seriously have blankets and stuffed animals piled up on top of me.
