Just One of Those Days

I can probably count on one hand the times this past year that I have really wondered why did I become a mom in the first place? Tuesday was one of those days. Basically I was overwhelmed, emotional, and Ephraim didn't go down for a nap until 2 after 4 hours of battling him to go to sleep. Instead of whining about my son's sleeping habits - I am choosing to blog about the highlights of Tuesday.

Around 12:30 I decided just to put Ephraim in his crib with the hope that he would put himself to sleep. I gave him a sippy cup, a some books and a pacifier so that if he didn't go to sleep he could play by himself and give me a break. I went in to check on him about 10 minutes later and found this:

He had somehow unscrewed the sippy cup and dumped water all over himself and his crib. He was blowing into the sippy cup and making funny noises. He was having a blast. Mommy wanted to cry (but now thinks it is quite funny and won't be giving him a sippy cup full of water in his crib anytime soon.)

We had lasagna for dinner and decided to give Ephraim some. He didn't know what to think and basically put it all over himself.
After the lasagna - he needed a bath. I gave him a bath in our bathroom (the toilet in his bathroom had overflowed and his bath tub was full of icky towels) and he brought a plastic garden trowel in to the bath with him. It was hilarious and a good way to end a crummy day. I just wish I had gotten a picture of it.

That was a pretty good First--April Fool's Day he put on. :) At least it was water and not poop. :)
