Last night was the only night this week that we were alone in our house. We’ve had/will have overnight guests galore! Since we’ve been doing a lot of cooking/entertaining we decided to take it easy on ourselves last night and go out to dinner. However, we still ended up eating at home because Gabbie was throwing such a fit at the restaurant that we had to leave before we finished eating. Before the food got there, she was getting so riled up that the lady at the table next to us offered her some French fries to keep her busy while we waited. I embarrassingly accepted, and was thankful for such kind, generous people, but still. It was horrible. She never acts like that, so I don’t know what was up. She’s getting ornery in her old (15 months) age.
This morning wasn’t much better. Everyone was better behaved, but Gabbie had a poopsplosion the likes of which we hadn’t seen before. Sure, she’s done the up the back thing before, but this was solid and came out the leg-holes of her diaper. This is going to get even grosser. You’ve been warned. So much came out that Aaron had to scoop it out of her pants with a wipe. He cautioned me as I turned the corner into the family room not to come any further. He’d rather just clean it up himself than let me witness the horror. So, Gabbie got a bath, and her pajamas got a fresh wash all by themselves in the washing machine. Consequently, both Aaron and I were late for work and I missed a conference call. Thank goodness for competent assistants who filled in for me!
And now for some totally unrelated topics:
I don’t know if it’s just me, but this is the scariest damn teddy bear I’ve ever seen. I would never let that anywhere near my house, not to mention I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with it in someone else’s house!
I have recently discovered the awesomeness of Ask Metafilter. This post is one of many that make me want to have a party, and this post makes me want to get Gabbie down to bed early on as many nights as possible (and not for what you think before you click that link!). I love going to the “Popular Favorites” tab every day to see what comes up. I never fail to learn something interesting (for example, Irish Pub Culture)when I visit this site.
