Two Finished Objects... SOON!

I'm sorry for the delay in posting, my small, but incredibly loyal, audience! I am sick with something or other. I generally feel like I've been run over by a very large truck and my remains have been thrown in icy water. The only part of me left whole is my throat which is all screwed up and pained.

Paul's been picking up a lot of the slack around the house with cleaning, and my mom (who can drive me crazy) is a saint when I'm not feeling well. If I told her I needed her here tomorrow morning at seven in the morning, she'd be waiting on my doorstep at six. I will probably go visit her tomorrow.

Unfortunately, between Nathan's odd allergic reaction to a virus (which made him break out into a very very spotty rash all over his whole body) and my need to sleep about 12 hours a day, I've not had time to post and process photos, including photos of my finished objects.

Normally when I'm not posting it's because I have nothing to say. Today? It's because I just want to watch some Glee and get some sleep.

Talk to you later. Also, if any of you have any advice on how to handle a baby that's starting to get opinionated and talk-backy (amazing, considering he can't talk), please let me know. Today, when I told Nathan not to touch the cat stratch toy, he looked at me deliberately, and ran his hands up and down it really fast. I managed not to laugh, but I was at a loss for what to do.

As for Nathan, my nephew did something similar years ago (he was ~2). My sister told him to stop running his toy truck on the kitchen table else he lose said truck. He looked her dead in the eyes, and ran the truck across the table again. My sister and I did everything we could to NOT laugh, b/c it was really hilarious. And he didn't bat an eye when the truck was taken away.

But advice? I have none of that. Kisses to Nathan for me...

i certainly hope you feel better as well!

i'm not a mommy yet so you may laugh at my advice, but i really feel that children should know that their actions have both good and bad consequences. perhaps next time nathan delibertately disobeys you, you could say well i told you not to do that so now when we get home (or whatever) you can't do (fill in the blank)

are you laughing? it sounds good in theory doesn't it?!
