One of Those Days

Nothing bad happened, but nothing extremely exciting either, so I don't know why I'm so agitated. I was just happy to see bedtime roll around. I love my kids, you know I do... just some days are harder to take than others. Not to mention, my new medication is still making me groggy (it's not making me queasy anymore, so that's good). But, I have times I feel like I can barely hold my eyes open.

I slept when the baby slept today, which was nice. But, it also left me feeling unmotivated, completely. The weather is getting so nice here, I'd like to be getting out and enjoying it.

Buddy is about to drive me to the brink with his Pokemon chatter. That's all he talks about, non-stop. I try to be enthusiastic, but the truth of the matter is that I don't understand one thing he's saying, so it's hard to be much of a conversationalist when the subject matter is foreign to me. (And, being the bad mom of the year, I don't care to learn more about Pokemon). I'm assured by other moms of boys his age that this is completely normal. And, I did such a good job keeping him away from Barney when he was small.... I failed at keeping Pokemon out of my house!

Speaking of Barney, I actually turned on the TV this morning to Noggin. When Buddy was a baby, we didn't get Noggin. He watched a lot of PBS, Disney, and Nickelodeon, but only the educational shows. I had a line up of what channels we'd watch and when, so we avoided Barney every time. Noggin is really cute. There are some newer shows on there I've never seen before, since it's been so long I had a toddler in the house. Anyway, I watched "Wow, Wow, Wubzy" (I think that's what it was called) and half of "Little Miss Spider". Sissy paid attention to it for about 40 seconds total.

I guess we'll get to learn to enjoy some fun new shows together in the next couple of years. I'm serious, Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers are some of my favorite shows. I could watch them over and over again. Which is good, because as I recall with Buddy, there were many episodes I knew almost word for word.

Ahhh, I feel so much better after writting this out. Thanks for reading.

  1. Sometime in the last year our daughter gave up Pokemon. I did not know this until I was flipping through the channels and mentioned to her it was on if she wanted to watch it. "Dad, that is so lame!"

    It looks like she might actually have room in her closet for clothes once we box up her collection.
