Happy Mother's Day to ME

Dear Diary,

It is my first Mother's Day, and I got to sleep until 7:40! It was luxurious. The BHE and Edwin made me a card, and we are going on a picnic today. Edwin's interest in the great outdoors is considerable, so hopefully he will enjoy it.

In other news, this week Edwin discovered his... cash and prizes. His meat and 2 veg. His bits and pieces. His twig and berries. (Should I go on? Because I could.) Now when we change his dipes, he immediately grabs for his junk. Even if it is covered in poop. Especially if it is covered in poop. Now I know why my friend J always offered her son a toy to play with on the changing table. But besides his junk, his 3 favorite toys right now are, in this order: 1) the remote 2) my cell phone 3) my glasses (only when they are on my face, natch). Did I mention the stapler? That's a favorite as well.

Also, he cut his first tooth a couple weeks ago. Also, his swim class went OK. He did not expose my breasts to the entire class, so that was a plus. He didn't love it, but he didn't exactly hate it. Also, I work for a government contractor and our contract is up for rebid and part of me (OK, most of me) hopes we don't get it and that I get laid off. Is that wrong? Seriously though, I just want to hang out with this guy all day. Wouldn't you?

LOL My son Gage is about a month younger than Edwin and discovered his junk yesterday morning during bath time. My husband loved it when I called him in to show him what his son was holding on to. Proud Daddy!!

Ha- my kid discovered his junk a couple of weeks ago, and it's exactly as you described. He is absolutely fascinated. I have to secure a toy in each of his little fists and race to clear the poop away or else I'm in for a doozy.
