Let’s Talk

First of all, that is not the appropriate way to wear shoes, even weird sock-shoes with rubber treads on the bottom. They’re supposed to make walking around EASIER and somehow they just don’t look like that’s what they’re doing.

Second of all, I would be happy to put some clothes on you – since it’s JANUARY IN CONNECTICUT – if you would just hold still for the thirty seconds it takes me to get an outfit out of the basket. This pretending you’re going to sit quietly only to disappear completely as soon as my back is turned is getting old. I also don’t appreciate being kicking in the boob while trying to put on your pants. Treat your food with a little more respect.

Finally, whiskey tango foxtrot on the foxtroting BINKY?! NOW you’re ready for one? NOW you want to chew on something besides my nipples? NOW, when most moms are trying to take the binkies away? Hells no, child.

Oh ok. You can keep that one. For now.

    Yeeeeeeeeah. January in an old building in Chicago is devilishly cold, but apparently pants are Of The Devil. What gives?

    Don’t know what’s going on with the bink situation, either. Niko usually only uses one when he goes down to sleep or is overtired/upset (helllloooooo, vaccines). But lately he’s been seeking them out for extended daytime sucks. Maybe it’s because he’s teething and just needs a bit of extra comfort/something in his mouth?

  2. Ha! We resisted the binkie for a while too, but then we took a long plane ride and brought one to help comfort her, then that turned into helping comfort her to sleep. She doesn’t suck on one all the time though, mostly when she’s sleepy or crabby. Hopefully we can break the binkie habit at a relatively good age so she doesn’t end up being one of those city kids who are like 5 years old getting pushed around Manhattan in a stroller with a binkie in their mouth.

    @ Brigid – they make these weird things called the Razberry teether that’s like a bumpy bink that seems to sooth Ivy when she starts rubbing her binkie on her gums from ouchy teething pain.
