It’s only what? 10:30 in the morning and today is shaping up to be the day from hell.
I just finished changing a diaper that would make the most seasoned mother gag. I don’t know what it was that he ate… wait.. yes I do. Beans and onions- never a good idea for a baby. I thought he got it out of his system last night after dinner when he crapped himself crazy, but no.. it was boiling up- just waiting to explode all night.
It didn’t help that Holden woke up before 7am this morning, and upon coming into bed with Thomas and I, sleep-kicked me for the next hour and a half. I have NEVER seen a child so restless. Rolling back and forth, kicking, swatting- never once did his eyes open.
And then breakfast- Guess who thought it would be fun to take the full bowl of oatmeal i’d just made and toss it onto my freshly cleaned carpet? You got it- Holden.
And my cereal was already made, so by the time I cleaned the oatmeal up, made a new bowl and got Holden into his highchair.. I was eating soggy disgustingness.
My tolerance is at an all time low right now. I really think I might snap if today were Thursday. As I type this.. Holden is charging up and down the hallway trying to eat dirty Qtips out of the trashcan- I guess that’s a sign that i’d better go.

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
For any parent who's ever had a kid who thinks they're more grown up than they are... and proves themselves wrong-- this story is for you holdinholden.com/2017/12/10-g…
@The_Mrs_Ward It's definitely a step out of the comfort zone but once you dip a toe in, it's hard to go back!
