He who laughs last, laughs hardest

On Sunday Joseph and I were hanging out in the kitchen. I was washing the mountain of dishes that accumulate hourly (seriously - ask my mom), and Joseph was playing with whatever he could get his hands on. I had a pack of root beer on the floor and he thought a can would be fun to play with. I saw him, went over there, decided it wasn't worth a tantrum, and told him to "be careful".

Note: I say that to him all the time, but he definitely doesn't know what it means.

Not 1 minute later, there was a bang as the can hit the floor, then it exploded and sprayed everywhere. The look of horror and terror on Joseph's face was HILARIOUS. He shreaked, flailed about, and tried to scamper away unsuccessfully. I am a terrible mother, but I laughed. It was so funny.

Well, the last laugh was on me, of course. There was root beer all over me, Joseph, the cabinets, the walls, the floor, the table, chairs, high chair, my CLEAN dishes, etc...

So after sticking to the floor for 2 days while re-washing the mountain of dishes, I finally caved tonight and washed the floor tonight at 10pm.

You win, Joseph. You win again.

Hi. I've been a lurker on MM for a couple of years. I became interested in natural birth so followed your story and loved that you had a homebirth. I did use a midwife but my husband felt better at the hospital. Anyways, we are going to be in Atlanta this coming week for his work so I wondered if you had any restaurant suggestions in this area: Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., Atlanta that are baby friendly (we have a 2 month old) and not uptight/fancy. My email is s_frisbee@hotmail.com and/or I'll check back here to see if you respond. But maybe you live on the other side so don't know much about this area? We don't want to drive around much every night. If it wasn't summer/hot I would ask if you wanted to meet up to take the kids for a walk but I hate heat so I'm not sure I can do it!! I realize that even though I 'know' you and the other MM regulars I'm a stranger. I did start my own blog/diary last year so if you want access to it - to check me out - let me know. I *think* I had it set to not be public but to be honest I'm not sure. (Because of you and others we are cloth diapering! Everyone IRL thought I was crazy.)
