Coming home to a clean kitchen was wonderful yesterday. I was able to make a "delicious" meal consisting of macaroni'n cheese, hot dogs and grapes (I had to sneak in the fruit to make myself feel better about the proccessed meal! hehehe). Little man was a fan of the whole shebang :)
Speaking of the little monster. He's been driving me to drink (figuratively speaking that is...). He's entered a biting phase, and I am completely besides myself. When he is scolded, he is un-scathed. I feel like this phase is reflecting poorly on my parenting, but at the same time, I know not to take it too personal. The fear of my child being the classroom bully lingers. The thought of him never outgrowing this bully stage is quite frightening. Now, I must punch myself in the gut for jumping to insane conclusions about my son's future as a sociopath after only two days of biting.
Wine Rack Update: Being the classy single mom that I am, I went on a walk to the "sucker store" for softball supplies. While I was browsing the fine assortment of beers, I decided I would try and find some decent inexpensive wine to adorn my new wine rack. I picked up a bottle of Malbec and a bottle of Shiraz. They look like they're at home on the rack...so much so that I don't know if I'll be able to drink them any time soon.
