I don't have to go into a lot of detail about today but I mention the sleep part for a reason. After this good wife (I get a gold start today) came home from 10 hours of working/driving today she then decided to make a 4 course meal for her neglected husband and child. I decided on hamburgers and scalloped potatoes with vegetables on the side and for good measure I decided to also cook a kielbasa while I had the grill going. DH got home with LO right on cue, a rarity, and we got to have a nice dinner with all three of us. My beautiful son is not "advanced". Even though I know all of those descriptors mean nothing as a toddler, sometimes it's frustrating seeing all of your toddler's friends talk, dance, wave, count, swim etc and the only thing we do well is eat. And can he eat! Tonight as an example he put away an entire hamburger patty, half a slice of bread, 2 tablespoons rice, 2 tablespoons Indian spiced chick peas, handfuls of peas and carrots and about 6 inches of a kielbasa plus a juice box. I eventually had to hide the kielbasa because I figured he would regret it if he kept eating it. When dinner was over. I passed out. I passed out so hard that I kept having a nagging worry in the back of my head "why am so tired?" "I'm SO tired!" and this prompted me to take a pregnancy test. It was negative, of course I am tired because I AM JUST TIRED!
Why am I awake still you might ask? Well, a teacher's job is never done. I have homework.
